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.
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.
It doesn’t matter how big of a celebrity you might become, every star still freaks out when they meet another artist they truly admire.
Dierks Bentley recently shared with Rolling Stone Magazine some of his biggest ‘fan girl’ moments when meeting his Country Music idols.
One story we couldn’t help but die of laughter from was the time he met Allison Krauss and Dolly Parton while working in the studio.
“Alison Krauss is probably my Number One. She came into the studio to sing on my first record. Dolly Parton was there, too. My dog Jake ran up to Dolly Parton and he put his nose up her skirt. We were like, ‘Oh my God, don’t do that.’ I didn’t know Dolly and she said, ‘Watch out there little doggie, don’t start something you can’t finish.'”
Now that’s the classic quick-witted Dolly we all have grown to love. But if there’s anyone who could put a silly old dog in it’s place, that would be Dolly Parton.
Carrie Underwood is back with “Something In The Water,” the latest single off her upcoming Greatest Hits Album produced by Mark Bright.
Underwood, who wrote this song along with Chris DeStefano, and Brett James says. “It’s joyous! I can’t help but smile when I hear it. I hope it has the same effect on everyone who listens to it.”
We agree, this song is pure, classic Carrie -the perfect mix of stunning vocals and a catchy melody. Take a listen to Carrie Underwood’s brand new single “Something In The Water.”

Country Music Superstar Faith Hill celebrates her 46 birthday today, and can we say that she gets more and more beautiful with age? Take a look at her career throughout the years.
In 1993 Faith Hill burst onto the Country Music scene with the album “Take Me As I Am.” She went on to win the Top Female Vocalist award at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
In 1996 the songbird fell in love and married Country Music Superstar Tim McGraw on October 6 of that year. Since being married they have vowed to never spend more than 3 days apart. Wow! She later gave birth to her first daughter Gracie.
1998 was a major turning point in Faith’s career. She scored her first ever pop crossover hit with “This Kiss” which peaked at #7 on the charts.
The follow up to her pop crossover breakthrough was “Breathe” released in 1999. The track reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. We began to see a sexier side of Faith Hill.
In 2001 after getting her hair braided in the French West Indies, it became brittle and dry. Faith decided to chop it all off and sported this radical blunt bob haircut – one of the most talked about haircuts at the time. She later admitted that this was one of her most favorite haircuts. In 2002 she received a Grammy Award for the album “Cry.”
The Country Girl was back in 2005 with the album “Fireflies,” including the No. 1 ‘Mississippi Girl.’ Her look began to mature.
In 2011 Faith Hill released her new single “Come Home” at the 2011 CMA Awards.
At the 2014 ACM Awards Faith Hill made an appearance with dark blonde locks and a beautiful smokey blue gown proving that the Country Music star is truly a timeless beauty.
