No one sings a country song quite like the legendary Alan Jackson YouTube

Ever since Alan Jackson broke onto the country music scene in 1989, he’s produced one thing and one thing only — absolutely pure country music.

That’s how it was, and that’s how it always will be.

And that’s how it was on May 14, 1991, when Alan released his sophomore album, “Don’t Rock The Jukebox.” With the lanky Georgian perched atop an old Wurlitzer jukebox in his jean jacket and cowboy hat, even the album cover screamed honky-tonk.

The lead single and title track shot straight to No. 1, proving that Alan was sticking to his knee-deep country music roots. The album produced three more chart-topping singles –“Dallas,” “Someday” and “Love’s Got A Hold On You” — while “Midnight In Montgomery” stalled at No. 3.

From a sales and awards perspective, “Don’t Rock The Jukebox” sold more than 6 million copies in the States and Canada and won the ACM award for both Album and Single of the Year.
