From “Chattahoochee” to “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow” to “Drive” to “Gone Country” and so many more hits, Alan provided the soundtrack to my childhood and many others. But the incredible thing is he’s still pumping out great music, 31 years after the release of his debut album Here in the Real World.
Alan recently revealed that he was suffering from a degenerative nerve condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, one that’s starting to affect his mobility and balance on stage. But Alan’s not ready to hang it up just yet, and said he still wants to tour and perform as much as he can given his condition.
“It’s been affecting me for years.”
