Alan Jackson Plays Bluegrass to Full House, Carnegie Hall Next
Alan Jackson played to a full house last night at the bluegrass venue The Station Inn in Nashville in a preview of his next release.
The show was broadcast live on 650 WSM AM with Eddie Stubbs as emcee and featured the players from Jackson's upcoming "The Bluegrass Album," set for release Sept. 24. Jackson played 13 of the 14 songs on the disc, according to Rolling Stone.
Fans started lining up at 11 p.m. Sunday in anticipation of reserving a seat for the show that went on sale Monday at 1 p.m., according to Jackson's publicist.
"I've played places worse than this before," Jackson joked getting on stage with his white cowboy hat.
Among the songs performed was Blue Side of Heaven, a song inspired by the death of George Jones.
Jackson announced today that he will be bringing his bluegrass to Carnegie Hall in New York on Oct. 28.
