Country music superstar Alan Jackson is coming to South Carolina and he's bringing along a few special guests. Alan Jackson, Nashville Star winner Chris Young and newcomers to the country music scene, The Band Perry will play at 7pm on November 18th at the North Charleston Coliseum.
Alan Jackson has sold more than 50 million albums and has had 34 No. 1 hits. He’s one of only a handful of artists who’ve been around for two decades who still regularly top the country chart. In addition, he’s the only one who is a true singer/songwriter, penning most of his own material.
Chris Young, winner of Nashville Star, will also be on tour with Alan. Like his heroes Keith Whitley and Randy Travis, Chris doesn’t see himself as the savior of country music, just a lucky guy living his dream. "I love playing music," he says. "There’s no way I could do anything else."
Anyone who heard him sing and saw his engaging stage show, inevitably decreed that this tall fellow with the friendly smile had what it takes. When they found out he also wrote the best of his songs, people would just smile, shake their heads and say, "That boy is going to be a star." It seems they were definitely correct on that call!
Also joining Alan on this year’s tour is The Band Perry. These newcomers to the country music stage are siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry. They say that they inherited a cross-pollinated love of country and rock & roll music from their parents.
The three have always felt the drive to perform and create music, sweating out the summers in Mobile, Alabama playing in any dusty roadhouse or church that would have them. Kimberly strapped on her first Gibson Guitar and fronted her first high school band at age 15, employing Reid, then 10, and Neil, only 8, as her roadies. Changing guitar strings and polishing cymbals for their big sister lost its charm after awhile,so the brothers got into the act and now they are taking Nashville by storm.
