Alan Jackson’s has been thrilling lovers of real country music for nearly three decades…and he’s about to continue that tradition as he embarks on another year of concert performances with this weekend’s start of his 2019 tour!
The country music icon opens his new tour with shows Friday in Louisville, Kentucky and Saturday in Greenville, South Carolina. Several weekends of concerts will follow through the spring, summer and into the fall as the three-time CMA Entertainer of the Year headlines arena concerts and amphitheater shows (detailed listing below, with more dates still to be added) in city-after-city.
Tickets and information for all Alan Jackson 2019 Tour dates are available at alanjackson.com/tour, where you can find information about Alan, his tour schedule, music and more. Jackson is again teaming up with CID Entertainment to offer fans VIP experiences at many of his 2019 shows.
Alan Jackson has been celebrating and telling real-life stories in his music since arriving on the scene in 1989. His concerts are filled with three decades of hits that have gained him legions of longtime fans – songs that draw added crowds as a younger generation discovers his music. Jackson’s repertoire stands the test of time; it has impacted a field of artists who cite him an influence…and his music has earned him a place alongside music’s greatest names, cementing his place in its history with membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote and made them famous – his debut hit “Here in The Real World”…signature songs “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country”…party anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time”…and many more.
The country superstar brings exciting talent on the road with him in 2019. Newcomer William Michael Morgan will be Jackson’s special guest on most shows; hitmaker Randy Houser will play the role on selected dates (see listing below). Jackson has a long history of giving new and rising stars their first chances to perform in front of arena-size crowds – artists who’ve been on one of their “first big tours” with Alan include Brad Paisley, LeAnn Rimes, Sara Evans, Chris Young and, more recently, Jon Pardi and Lauren Alaina.
In addition to Morgan and Houser, many of Jackson’s shows will include a brief performance by an aspiring singer-songwriter who currently performs at AJ’s Good Time Bar, his self-owned honky-tonk on downtown Nashville’s famed “Lower Broadway.” The rotating list of newcomers (see listing below) taking the stage includes James Carothers, Amanda Daughtry and Jay Bragg along with two artists that are to-be-determined by a fan-voted “Wild Card” contest (https://www.ajsgoodtimebar.com/vote) that runs through February 8.
Alan Jackson’s touring history has taken him across America and to places far beyond, and his music has gained him fans around the globe. Beginning this weekend, he continues his tradition of “keepin’ it country” for people far and wide as he brings nearly 30 years of hits to a city near you!

ABOUT ALAN JACKSON: A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and recently inducted to the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Alan Jackson’s membership among music’s all-time greats is part of a long line of career-defining accolades that include three CMA Entertainer of the Year honors, more than 25 years of membership in the Grand Ole Opry, a 2016 Billboard ranking as one of the Top 10 Country Artists of All-Time, induction to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Heritage Award as the most-performed country songwriter-artist of ASCAP’s first 100 years.
The man from rural Newnan, GA has sold nearly 60-million albums worldwide, ranks as one of the 10 best-selling male vocalists of all-time in all genres. He has released more than 60 singles – registering 50 Top Ten hits and 35 #1s (including 26 Billboard chart-toppers). He has earned more than 150 music industry awards – including 19 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, a pair of Grammys and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards.
Jackson is one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music. He is in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who’ve written more than 20 songs that they’ve recorded and taken to the top of the charts. Jackson is one of the best-selling artists since the inception of SoundScan, ranking alongside the likes of Eminem and Metallica. He’s also the man behind one of Nashville’s most-popular tourist stops, AJ’s Good Time Bar, a four-story honky-tonk in the heart of downtown featuring daily live music and a rooftop view of Music City.
William Michael Morgan: Chart-topping hit “I Met a Girl” put Mississippi native William Michael Morgan on the map, but his talent, music and voice are keeping him there. A timeless sound and honest lyrics landed him a major label record deal at 19, gave him that #1 gold smash, and earned him a Top 5 debut album. A few years older – and hundreds of shows wiser – William Michael’s music embodies the man he’s become: a hard worker and big dreamer, single dad and hopeless romantic, pure country stalwart unafraid to embrace the here and now.
ABOUT RANDY HOUSER: Hitmaker Randy Houser’s vocals have earned raves and his music has made him a staple on country radio over the past decade, as he topped the charts with “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” “Goodnight Kiss” and “We Went.” Houser is also known for such hits as “Boots On” and his critically-acclaimed powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year nominated “Like A Cowboy.”
