Alan Jackson Announces 2020 Tour to Span Most of the Year

Big news, Alan Jackson fans! The Country Music Hall of Fame member just announced he is hitting the road in 2020, on his own Alan Jackson 2020 Tour! Jackson will kick off the tour on Jan. 10 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and continue touring through October. Throughout his tour, Jackson will return to some cities he hasn't played in for a few years, including Nashville, where he is scheduled to take the stage on Aug. 7 at the Bridgestone Arena.

The 61-year-old will perform several of his classic country hits, which is more important to him now than ever before, especially as he sees that style of music fade away.

"There’s some good music out there, " he told GQ, "but there’s not really much at all that’s real country music anymore on the mainstream country charts — what is nominated for awards — and it’s been going that way for years now, and I don’t know if it’ll ever come back," he said.

Jackson has yet to announce any opening acts. A complete list of tour dates can be found below. More information is available by visiting Jackson's website.
