Country Music Hall of FamerÂ Alan Jackson will bring a night of hits to Oklahoma with a concert at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City on Saturday, SeptemberÂ 14!Â
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 theÂ Country Music Hall of FameÂ and theÂ 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.
Newcomer William Michael Morgan will be Jackson's special guest. The chart-topping hit "I Met a Girl" put the Mississippi native on the map, and 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.
Jackson's Oklahoma City concert will continue his tradition of "keepin' it country" for people far and wide as he brings nearly 30 years of hits to Oklahoma.
