Alan Jackson is once again nominated alongside Zac Brown Band for Musical Event of the Year at the CMA Awards for their duet “Dixie Highway.” They were nominated last year as well for “As She’s Walking Away.” Their two nominations in the category may have to do with the fact that Alan just likes Zac.

“I like artists, and I like Zac, that are the real thing,” Alan said. “He’s not just a singer, a guy that got out of college and said, ‘Hey, I wanna be a country singer and move to Nashville.’ He’s a guy who was singing and really making a living doing it playing clubs and things that I did too. He’s created his own sound and his own musical style. It’s not real hard country, but it’s rootsy. I like that kind of sound.”
