NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 7, 2015) Country superstar Alan Jackson kicks off his 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR this week in Florida with stops in Ft. Myers tomorrow and Tampa on Friday.

Joining Jackson on his KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR will be Capitol Records Nashville’s Jon Pardi and Grammy/CMA/ACM nominated hit singer/songwriter Brandy Clark.

Alan Jackson’s 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR will be a memorable celebration for his longtime fans as well as legions of new fans who are discovering his music through the many songs that have withstood the test of time and influenced many new artists of today like the tour’s special guests Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous – from his massive debut hit, “Here In The Real World” to “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” the summertime party-anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” and many, many more.
