A&E’s Private Sessions, GAC’s The Collection: Alan Jackson to Air This Weekend

NashvilleTN - Superstar Alan Jackson’s 18th album, FREIGHT TRAIN, makes its chart debut this week with first-week sales of more than 72,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, earning a #2 berth on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart as the excitement surrounding the album continues with tomorrow’s launch of ALAN JACKSON’S FREIGHT TRAIN TOUR.

With first single, “It’s Just That Way,” climbing the charts, Jackson and his newest collection have been met with accolades from an array of media.  The Los Angeles Times lauds the 50-million selling country titan as “one of the most dependably rewarding artists that genre has to offer,” while the Chicago Sun-Times hails Jackson’s focus on “crafting tasteful songs that will stand the test of time.”  Taking a cue from FREIGHT TRAIN’s album closer, The Philadelphia Inquirer adds, “The final number is ‘The Best Keeps Getting Better.’  Of course Jackson’s not referring to himself, but the line aptly sums up him and this album….”

With 34 #1 singles to his credit, including three from his previous album, GOOD TIME (which became his 15th collection to hit the Platinum level or above), Jackson will be rolling out a trainload of hits and new music with the launch of his new tour, beginning with tomorrow’s sold-out date in Estero, FL.  Joining Jackson on the road will be Josh Turner and Chris Young.  A complete list of dates appears below, as well as online at www.alanjackson.com.

Additional upcoming television will include NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno on April 14 and the April 16 airing ofJackson’s appearance on the syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.
