Alan Jackson brought his country show to Choctaw Casino Resort’s Grand Theater last weekend.

At 58 years old, he’s considered country royalty by the younger artists.

25 years since hitting it big, he’s still going strong with the Durant audience loving and singing along to nearly every song.

A highlight of the concert was Jackson throwing t-shirts in the crowd. Hands went into the air with everyone trying to catch one.

His 80 million record sales is impressive along with his 66 hits he’s charted.

Jackson first sang in church as a child with his mother playing a big part in his exposure to music.

She passed away recently on January 7, 2017.

At the Grand Theater, Jackson sang his big hits “Gone Country,” and “Livin’ on love.”

He is known as an all around nice guy in Nashville and was such good friends with George Jones, he sang George’s signature “He stopped loving her today,” at his funeral.

Jackson’s wife Denise published a book in 2007 that told about her life with her childhood sweetheart, Alan Jackson.

She talked about their relationship and their re-commitment to that relationship as well as their commitment to Christianity.
