Good news, Alan Jackson fans! The country music icon announced he will head out on tour, kicking off on Jan. 25 in Louisville, Kentucky, with William Michael Morgan and Randy Houser serving as his opening acts.
"Honored & excited to join @OfficialJackson on select dates for his 2019 tour!" William Michael Morgan shared on social media.
Before Jackson hits the road, he will celebrate the holidays with his family, including his wife, Denise, and daughters Mattie, Ali and Dani.
“Christmas is pretty traditional," Jackson acknowledged. "We don’t let anybody open any presents until Christmas morning. We don’t let them get up on their own and take off. Everybody has to wait and kind of get situated, and maybe have a cup of coffee, and then we start all of the regular Christmas morning activities: opening presents, taking pictures and video."
The holiday will be bittersweet for the Jackson family, since the death of his son-in-law, Ben Selecman, who was married to his oldest daughter, Mattie.
"It's with grateful hearts that Denise and I want to thank our friends and fans for the outpouring of love and prayers during the hospitalization and ultimate passing of our son in law, Ben Selecman," Jackson said after Selecman's passing. "Ben was a southern boy who loved hunting and fishing and just being outdoors. His childlike enthusiasm for each new day was contagious to everyone around him. He was the godly young man that Denise had always prayed for for Mattie. Ben we love you. Rest In Peace until we see you again."
Tickets will be available for most shows beginning on Friday, Dec. 14. More dates are expected to be announced in the near future. Find more information at AlanJackson.com.
