iTunes Editors’ Notes

Like all great covers albums, Under the Influence says more about the person singing the covers than it does the songs being sung. It would have been easy for a traditionalist like Alan Jackson to record a dozen Hank Williams and Buck Owens songs and let the praise rain down. Instead, he does something much more personal, and it shows. Except for a crowd-pleasing rendition of Jimmy Buffett’s "Margaritaville,” the songs here are not obvious choices, or even well-known. They are included because they are important to Jackson, and he treats them with the same care and affection one would have for a longtime friend. Most of these songs were minor hits in the late ‘70s, the period when Jackson was coming of age as a country singer. My Own Kind of Hat” and “The Way I Am” are not the most famous Merle Haggard songs, but that’s what makes Jackson’s renditions of them special. Gene Watson’s “Farewell Party” and John Anderson’s “She Just Started Liking Cheatin’ Songs” might have been lost to history, but Jackson locates in them the sweet despair that makes for immortal country ballads.

Alan Jackson's Under the Influence

Outstanding.

Outstanding!!

I'm barely 25 and a huge classic country fan. Alan Jackson does it right in Under the Influence. With these excellent covers, some better than the original, Jackson shows us his roots and source of influence. If you're a classic country fan buy it...if you're an Alan Jackson fan, buy it twice!!

Another Great Album!

I realized I do not have this one and it has a lot of my favorites on it. I love it when Alan does "The Blues Man" in Concert!
"Margaritaville" is a fun Song with Alan and Jimmy Buffett.. I'm a Fan of Alan for Years now and his Music is heard all over the world.
I must get this one! I thought I had all of Alan's.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

After Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson was the most popular male country singer of the '90s. An heir to the new traditionalist movement of the '80s, Jackson's approach was rooted in classic honky tonk yet remained comfortably within the contemporary mainstream. Jackson's hallmark was consistency — he wrote many of his own hits, and his way with a hook was part of the reason he never really hit a commercial dry spell, even into the new millennium. He also projected a modest, wholesome, down-to-earth...
