Alan Jackson Earns GRAMMY Nomination as He Heads to Las Vegas for American Country Awards Performance & Honor

Alan Jackson won a GRAMMY Award for his powerful “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” and last night, the recent #1 smash “As She’s Walking Away” garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for Zac Brown Band and Jackson. Both of these songs, together with Jackson’s new single, “Ring of Fire,” are part of his just-released 34 Number Ones collection.

Spanning 37 songs in all, 34 Number Ones includes all of Jackson’s #1 singles to date. Indeed, it’s his enduring status as one of country music’s preeminent hitmakers that will find him as both performer and honoree at this coming Monday night’s American Country Awards. Jackson will be the recipient of the show’s first Greatest Hits Award, which pays tribute to an artist with an extensive catalogue of #1 singles, while also honoring the artist’s overall contributions to country music.

The inaugural airing of the American Country Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, December 6, at 8 PM ET/PT tape-delayed, on FOX.
