On This Date: Alan Jackson Releases Hit Single “Gone Country” In 1994

Taking it back to 1994.

An absolutely killer year for country music, 1994 saw hits like “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” Tim McGraw’s “Don’t Take The Girl,” “XXX’s and OOO’s” by Trisha Yearwood, “Pickup Man,” and more.

And on this date, November 15th, 1994, Alan Jackson released “Gone Country,” the 3rd single from his Who I Am record.

Written by Bob McDill, it was a song that Alan wished he wrote himself:

“When I first heard this song I fell in love with it. I wish that I’d written it, ’cause it says a lot of things that I’d like to say. I think it’s just a fun song actually, celebrating how country music has become more widespread and accepted by all types of people all over the country.”
