Alan Jackson will release his highly anticipated new album, Thirty Miles West, on June 5. It will be his debut project for ACR (Alan’s Country Records)/EMI Records Nashville and is produced by long-time producer and friend Keith Stegall. The unique album name references where he grew up.
“There’s this highway that’s been in existence for forever now – it’s called the Dixie Highway and it runs from north of Michigan all the way down to South Florida,” he said. “I wrote a song about it that’s on the album. I grew up on Highway 34 outside of Newnan, Georgia, and that’s where we came up with Thirty Miles West. I think we were about thirty miles west of the official part of the Dixie Highway that runs through Georgia.”
Alan’s current single, “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore,” will be featured on Thirty Miles West. The song’s video has spent several weeks in the Top 3, including time at No.1, on GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown.
