I remember sitting here in this building in 1989 when a new record by a big tall blond dude from Newnan, Georgia came across my desk. It was a song called 'Here in the Real World" by a guy named Alan Jackson. You knew the minute you heard his voice that this guy was destined to be a superstar.

Today that young man will celebrate his 60th birthday. He is still pumping out great music and will always be considered one to the true gentlemen of the format along with George Strait. Thanks for all the hits and shows Alan. Have a great day and we will see you on the road. Happy Birthday Alan.
