Alan Jackson is a country music legend.
After years of success, the singer is gearing up to release a three-CD set next month called Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story, featuring classic hits as well as eight unreleased tracks.
Fans will find versions of “The Star Spangled Banner,” Born Too Late,” “If Tears Could Talk” and “Love Is Hard,” on the new album.
“Love Is Hard” was recorded back in 2008 for Jackson’s Good Time, and mixes old country with Jackson’s iconic voice. The twangy tune features lyrics “you can blame it on the whiskey, you can blame it on money/You can blame it on fate or time/or the fact that she ain’t funny.”
