We just found some rare Alan Jackson footage from 1985. It’s actually his very first appearance on National TV. Jackson appears on TNN’s You Can Be A Star (Jackson had a job in the Network’s mailroom)
Alan Jackson and George Jones were very close. One of George’s final bedside visits was from him. Every time George was honored and memorialized, Alan was there to sing a poignant version of He Stopped Loving Her Today. It is quite appropriate and fitting that the iconic classic was the song Alan sang on TV for the first time.
