We’ve scoured the internet for days and came across this gem. Can you guess which Country Music artist this is? Here are a few clues…

1. He’s a Georgia boy born and bred.

 

2. His first job was in the Nashville Network’s mailroom.

3. He’s received 2 Grammys, 16 CMA Awards, and 17 ACM awards.

4. He had a collection at Cracker Barrel.

Haven’t guessed yet?

Well, this young man is none other than Alan Jackson. This just goes to show that all men get better with age!

When it comes to the most awarded Grammy winning Country artist, just who could it be? Believe it or not, this Country singer has more Grammys than Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, and U2, coming in 2nd place for the most Grammy wins ever!

So who could this artist be? Is it George Strait? Not even close. George only has 1 Grammy which he won back in 2009 for Best Country Album (Troubadour)

What about Alan Jackson? Nope. Alan only has two awards.

Carrie Underwood, perhaps? While she does have a hefty 7 Grammy’s under her belt, the record holder actually has nearly 4 times as many Grammys!

Who can forget the Dixie Chicks? Whenever these girls put out a record, the Grammys come pouring in. Even after 13 Grammy wins, these girls haven’t raked in the most.

Then there’s Vince Gill. With a whopping 20 wins, Vince has the most Grammys of any male Country singer, but not the most Grammys.

The Country artist with the most Grammy wins is none other than Alison Krauss, with an astounding 27 wins. She won her first Grammy at age 19, and has gone on to be the most awarded female in Grammy history, along with the 2nd most awarded artists of all time.

Happy birthday to Country Music legend Alan Jackson who celebrates his 56th birthday today. In honor of his remarkable career, we’ve compiled the top 8 songs that defined his career over the years. What’s your favorite Alan Jackson hit? Leave us a comment.

8. “Chattahoochee” 

This song is a fun look back at times and coming of age experiences that are universal for nearly everyone.

7. “Drive (For Daddy Gene)”

The title song and second single from ‘Drive’ told yet another simple, story we can all relate to, with Alan looking back on beautiful memories with his father.

6. “It’s Five O’ Clock Somewhere”
The song is simple. It’s okay to have a drink anytime of the day!

5. “Little Bitty”

‘Little Bitty’ is another simple song that talks about the everyday joys of the simple life.

4. “Here in the Real World”

After his first single failed, the title song and second single from his debut album rocketed to No. 3 in the country charts.

3. “Gone Country”

Tons of industry folk flocked to Nashville in the 90s to cash in on the Country Music craze. This song is a satire of those people including a struggling country singer.

2. “Remember When” 

Jackson again uses his own life experiences and turns them into songs his fans can truly relate to.

1. “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)”

He debuted this single live at the CMA Awards to a standing ovation. The release became not only a No. 1 hit, but one of the greatest career-defining moments of his career.
