Country music hall of famer Alan Jackson is coming downtown this weekend for a night of hits.

Jackson’s tour, which includes several other country acts, is stopping at Van Andel Arena this Saturday for a 7:30 p.m. show.

The concert will feature his debut hit “Here in the Real World,” signature songs like “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country,” party anthems like “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time” and many more songs.

His sound

Jackson has built his reputation by being a “standard-bearer” for traditional country music, but he also has “explored a wide range of regional styles,” according to his website. His songs have “drawn on” bluegrass, Cajun, honky-tonk, gospel, love ballads and western swing.

His recording career officially began in 1989, when he became the first country artist signed to Arista Records.

Hit maker

Jackson has sold more than 60-million albums worldwide and ranks as one of the 10 bestselling solo artists of all-time in any genre, according to his site.

As of 2017, he has registered 50 “top 10” hits and 35 “No. 1s”, including 26 Billboard No. 1s.

He has won 18 Academy of Country Music awards, 16 Country Music Association awards and two Grammys.
