Ladies and gentleman… Sir Alan Jackson is BACK.

And not just back… he’s back with a TWENTY ONE SONG (double) album titled, Where Have You Gone. 

We knew something was coming, as he teased the release of something new the other day with the caption “You’ve been waiting,” but we didn’t know he going to drop a 21-song bomb on us.

Set for release on May 14th, Alan is giving us a preview of the new record with a nice little 3-piece, featuring the title track, “Things That Matter” and “Way Down In My Whiskey.”

The title track finds Alan wondering the same thing we’ve all been wondering… where the hell has country music gone?

Check out this chorus:

“Soft steel guitar, oh how I’ve missed you
Words from the heart, let me hear you again
Sounds from the soul, fiddle I need you
Sweet country music, where have you gone
Sweet country music, please come back home.”

Can I get an AMEN?

“Where Have You Gone”

“Things That Matter”

“Way Down In My Whiskey”
