Written by Alan Jackson and Don Sampson, “Midnight In Montgomery” was released as the fourth single from Jackson’s 1991 record, Don’t Rock the Jukebox.
As a tribute to the great Hank Williams, “Midnight In Montgomery” tells the story of a man that meets the ghost of Hank in the Montgomery graveyard where he is buried. It only peaked at number 3 on the charts, but to this day, it’s still one of Jackson’s most popular songs.
Josh Turner recorded a cover of the tune on his stellar covers record, Country State Of Mind, and recently released a live performance video of the song as well. And in the ultimate tip of the cap, Josh performed the cover from Alan’s own AJ’s Good Time Bar in Nashville, Tennessee.
