SIDE NOTES: How To Fall In Love With Alan Jackson in 4 Minutes
Say what you will about country music, but neotraditionalist legend Alan Jackson is impossible to hate on. Frankly speaking, the 1992 music video for “Chattahoochee” should be stored in the Library of Congress as a national treasure. With the inexplicably campy waterskiing shots, the comically-small and wonderfully tacky lifejackets, and the hair — oh god the hair — you can’t help but smile and accept your fate as an Alan Jackson fan by the end of the video. Plus, he even married his high school sweetheart Denise! (RE: Impossible to hate on.)
Be sure to catch the honest Georgia man himself at Merriweather on September 6th!
