Farewell Country Legend

Country sensation Alan Jackson announced he is going on what may be his last live tour. On May 30, the performer said he is continuing his Last Call: One More For the Road tour which started in 2022 and he has plans to take this show through 2025. The tour has already played to capacity, filling crowds all over the country.

In his Instagram announcement Jackson revealed, “Some of the best times are had right at last call, and this is one last call that you don’t want to miss!” “Fans know when they come to my shows, they’re going to hear the songs that made me who I am – the ones they love,” he added, like “Chattahoochee” and “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”

Some of his important albums include Don’t Rock the Jukebox (1991), A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ’bout Love) (1992), and Who I Am (1994). Each of these albums produced multiple chart-topping singles. Throughout his career, Jackson has won numerous awards, including Grammys, CMA Awards, and ACM Awards. He has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

About three years ago, Jackson shared that he has been living with a degenerative nerve condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease for the last 10 years. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Charcot (shahr-KOH)-Marie-Tooth disease is a group of inherited disorders that cause nerve damage.

This damage is mostly in the arms and legs (peripheral nerves). Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is also called hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy.” A result of the disease is “smaller, weaker” muscles. There can be sensation loss, foot problems, and a hard time walking. The symptoms usually present in the feet and legs and may possibly move up to hands and arms

The award winning artist is planning on restarting his tour in Boston before moving on to other cities like Kansas City, Fort Worth and Orlando. Concert tickets are going on sale Friday, June 7.
