Alan Jackson

Eagle Rock Entertainment will proudly present Keepin’ It Country – Live At Red Rocks from Country music superstar Alan Jackson via DVD and Digital video on May 6, 2016. [MSRP $14.98].

Keepin’ It Country – Live At Red Rocks was filmed on May 17, 2015 before an at-capacity crowd at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, in the midst of Jackson’s 25th Anniversary Keepin’ It Country tour. With a career spanning 23 albums deep (including two Christmas collections, two gospel albums, and his highly acclaimed The Bluegrass Album), Jackson’s insightful lyrics and inspired songwriting reflect the feelings of everyday life. That honesty has earned him the adulation of generations of fans.

The 26-song rich set features performances of timeless classics from across his career (“Gone Country,” “Good Time,” “Small Town Southern Man,” “Chattahoochee,” “Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning),” “Remember When,” “Where I Come From,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Mercury Blues”), as well as songs from Jackson’s 2015’s smash album Angels And Alcohol, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country chart and #5 on the Top 200 (“You Never Know,” “Angels And Alcohol”).

With nearly 60 million albums sold worldwide, Alan Jackson is one of the best-selling country artists of all-time. A member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, Jackson has received over 150 industry awards, including 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, two Grammys, and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards. He was the first recipient of ASCAP’s Heritage Award in 2014, earning the accomplishment of most performed country music songwriter-artist of ASCAP’s first 100 years. Having released more than 60 singles, with 50 landing in the Top 10 and 35 of which have held the #1 position, Jackson resides in elite company with Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who have written more than 20 songs that have hit #1.

The influence of Alan Jackson is immeasurable, and Keepin’ It Country – Live At Red Rocks is an incredible celebration of an essential country music icon.

Alan Jackson and Ply Gem Launch “Home for Good Project” with Habitat for Humanity

Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson is partnering with Ply Gem Industries as the ambassador for their “Home for Good Project” to build more than 300 homes across the U.S. with Habitat for Humanity. As ambassador, Alan will help raise awareness through his fan base, social media following and support in a local Builders Blitz event in Nashville, scheduled to coincide with the 2016 CMA Music Festival in June 2016. The “Home for Good Project” is grounded in Alan’s song “You Can Always Come Home” from his recently released album Angels & Alcohol. The song is the anthem that will be played throughout the program to remind individuals the importance of having a place to call home.

The first phase of the program, kicking off today, is Alan Jackson’s ‘You Can Always Come Home’ for the Holidays Contest with Ply Gem, where two grand prize winners will receive paid airfare for two to be with family for the holidays. The two-week contest will award additional prizes throughout the duration of the program. Visit http://bit.ly/AJHomeForTheHolidays to enter for a chance to win and for the full contest rules and regulations.

“I’m honored to partner with Ply Gem and Habitat for Humanity on their goal to build 300 homes,” shared Jackson. “Everyone deserves a place they can call home.”

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to put Ply Gem’s products, including performance siding, windows, stone and trim, to support families and communities across the country. Projects of this magnitude, demonstrating unity and passion toward an incredible cause, will no doubt be successful and change lives,” says Gary E. Robinette, Chairman and CEO, Ply Gem. “We are motivated by Habitat for Humanity’s mission of bringing people together to build in partnership and are proud of our alignment with country music icon Alan Jackson. His personal motivation to communicate what home means through his music is now the foundation for the “Home for Good Project.”

“We are grateful to Ply Gem and Alan Jackson for their commitment to raise awareness and make Builder Blitz a success,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “In addition to providing home exterior products for Builders Blitz, Ply Gem’s communications efforts well in advance of the event will help connect more people to our mission of providing a foundation for families to build strength, stability and independence.”

The “Home for Good Project” is a multi-year initiative that includes a donation of over $1 Million worth of exterior building products and funds for Habitat for Humanity to use to help families build more than 300 homes throughout the year. In addition, Ply Gem will be the presenting sponsor of Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz, which brings together Habitat for Humanity affiliates and professional builders to build and renovate homes across the United States. The company will support the project with advertising and social media initiatives to encourage its associates, the building industry—including distributors, builders and remodelers—as well as consumers across the country to volunteer in their communities.
