Alan Jackson is one of the best acts in country today, and this CD alone would be enough to justify it. Twelve songs tell it like it is; a style that is Alan Jackson's in a nutshell. Nine out of the twelve songs were penned by Jackson himself. And then there's "Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)". All I can say, if I had to totally devote myself for 40 years just to write a song half as good as that one, it would be a worthwhile effort. And there is the excellent musicianship on the album that has always been present in Alan Jackson's material that is clearly traditional country with a breath of fresh air.
