Alan Jackson Takes On Norway

Det sier alt om den amerikanske countrygiganten Alan Jackson at han kunne ha byttet ut alle sangene han leverte ute i godværet i Skien i går kveld, under sin første norgeskonsert noensinne, og fortsatt bare spilt hits. For når Norge med Jackson får sjeldent storfint countrybesøk, så dreier det seg om en av de virkelige grossistene i salgstroféer fra de amerikanske countrylistene.

NOW if you dont read Norwegian....here's the US press release:)

The world loves country music, as superstar Alan Jackson and nearly 40,000 fans that came to see him in Norway and Sweden last week will vouch. And the facts prove them out: Jackson’s most recent album GOOD TIME just reached the one million worldwide sales mark and hisNORWEGIAN FAVORITES album hit the #1 spot on the charts in that country, his first #1 ever in Norway. Jackson played Skien, Norway, Eskilstuna, Sweden, and Bergen, Norway, where 20,000 fans waited 9 hours in the rain to see Jackson.

In the states, Jackson's most recent collection, Good Time, became the fourth album of his career to debut simultaneously at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums and all-genre Billboard 200 sales charts. The 17-song release has netted three No.1 hits, “Good Time,” "Small Town Southern Man,” and “Country Boy,” and Jackson’s 50th Top 10 single “Sissy’s Song.” Jackson’s newest single, “I Still Like Bologna,” his ode to changing times and his continuing affection for a favorite sandwich, is climbing the charts.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
