If you consider how rich Alan Jackson is, it can be said that Alan’s estimated net worth is over $110 million, mainly gained from the sale of albums that he has released during his career, and of course concert appearances during a career in music which began in the early 1980s.

Alan Jackson Net Worth $110 Million

Alan started singing from a very young age, in his local church. Despite this fact, Alan was not very interested in music until he started listening to such musicians as Hank Williams, John Anderson and Gene Watson. Soon he started writing songs and dreamt about becoming a successful musician. In 1989 he signed a contract with the record label “Arista Nashville”, and in 1990 released his first album, entitled “Here in the Real World”. Soon several songs of this album became popular and he gained recognition, so that one year later when he released his second album both his net worth and popularity began growing. His later albums also received acclaim, and Alan became more respected among others in the music industry. In 2002 Alan released the special Christmas album called “Let It be Christmas”, and subsequently also decided to release his own gospel music album, entitled “Precious Memories”. Despite the fact that Alan did not expect much from this album, it also became  successful and added considerably to his net worth.

In 2011 Alan became a part of the Capitol’s EMI Records Nashville record label, and continued working on new albums. Some of his recent work includes such albums as “Thirty Miles West”, “The Bluegrass Album” and “Angels and Alcohol”. Jackson has now released almost 50 albums of all types, including live and videos. Additionally, he has also organized several tours during his career, which has allowed him to meet his fans and share his talent with them.

In addition to his activities in the music industry, Alan has collaborated with such companies as the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc and Ford Trucks, which have had a significant impact on the growth of Jackson’s net worth, and as he continues his career, is still growing.

If to talk about Alan’s personal life,  in 1979 he married Denise and the couple now has three children. Alan states that many of his songs were written based on his relationship with Denise, and their ups and downs as a family.

Quotes

#Quote
1I've had several working-man songs that I like.
2I mean, my girls are very sweet; I'm very proud of all of of them.
3He's written some great songs. I thought that "Blues Man" was a perfect song for me to do as a tribute.
4I always try to make the music that I like and think my fans will like.
5As long as I'm still able to have a hit on the radio and sell a few albums and some tickets, I don't see that it would be worth retiring.
6I really was a fan of his and always have been - his writing especially, you know? I think people a lot of times overlook that part, because he kind of got into that party character so heavy.
7I don't write all my stuff. Everybody always thinks that. But in just about every album I've ever had has been about 50-50 songs I've written or co-written and other people's songs.
8I've been a lot of places, and my wife, Denise, she likes a lot of the fancy restaurants. I'm more of a basic eater. I still go into Cracker Barrel. Those are the kind of people who like the kind of music I'm making.
9I could have done a hundred songs, really. It was hard to narrow them down, because I tried to pick songs for the most part that actually did have some effect on me or influenced me in the past.
10I think I've always approached making albums pretty much the same way. I'm just looking for a mixture of songs and topics that aren't the same thing over and over.
11My mother kept asking me, "When are you going to do a gospel album?" And I've always wanted to do a gospel album. Everybody was going on about it, so mom started hounding me more.
12The fan base that I've had all these years has come along. Some of them are not as plugged into the digital world, so they want to go out and buy the CD at Walmart or something.
13Probably some of the songs I never even really listened to the lyrics. Half of them I'd hear off the radio and was probably singing the wrong words and didn't even know it.
14You think a lot of people get to be big stars and get a little crazy, but most of the ones I've ever met have always been surprisingly normal, and I've enjoyed that.
15A lot of times when songwriters get together and write a song... somebody will come in with a hook and a lot of times they come out with something that sounds a little crafty.
16I've had to live with women all my life. I grew up with four older sisters, and I was the baby and the only boy.
17If you just do 50 to 60 shows a year, it's not that much time away from home.
18"After 17" is a song I wrote when my first daughter went to college, so that's kind of where I'm at in that part of my life. If you listen to that song and knew anything about me, you'd say, "Oh yeah, he wrote that about his daughter," but I try not to write them that they are so specific that they wouldn't apply to anybody that has a child.
19It's a scary word, 'cancer'.
20I didn't realize until I was older what a huge music fan my daddy really was, and actually that my grandma played banjo at one time, and I didn't even know that until a year or two ago.
21I've always said that if you have songs on the radio and get played, you've got to have a tour to support that.
22When I was in high school, I don't know that I really had big dreams.
23I mean, my voice has gotten a little deeper sounding as I've gotten older, I think. I noticed that.
24I've always stood up for country music.
25If you can last until you're 40 years old, hopefully you'll be mature enough to figure out the rest of the years.
26You just write about things that happen.
27Oklahoma's always been good to me.
28The music business doesn't take up that much of my time. I probably should put a little more energy into it.
29Making music is still what keeps a fire going on in me.
30I've always wanted to make a bluegrass album.
31The older you are, I think you realize what you enjoy and what you don't need, what wears you out and what's important.
32I think every album you have, especially if it's done well, you feel like you're competing with yourself.
33You have to be tough-skinned and willing to accept criticism, and at the same time, just try to do music that you like and you are proud of and not just whatever you think it's going to take to get you on the radio.
34Hee Haw was probably my biggest exposure to live music at a young age, because there wasn't any live music around my town and no one in my family played instruments.
35Growing up in Georgia, I used to think people up north or out west were so different. They're really not. They're just regular people who live in small towns. They grow up and try to raise families and have a job and go to church and play softball. It's that way everywhere.
36I grew up with nothing, so whenever I got to where I could have something I felt like I needed to have everything I couldn't have when I was young.
37I think if you retire from touring, then people think you are retired.
38For some reason, I've been labeled that and it's fine, but there are a lot of other artists that sing real traditional stuff, so I don't know why they picked me. That's what I've always done.
39What I enjoy doing more than anything is, I have my little antique car collection, and when the weather is pretty I like to get out one of my old cars. I have a little route I run down in the country, down Nachez Trace Parkway. The loop down through there is just really relaxing, not much traffic.
40If anything good came out of 9/11, to me, was that people were so cynical about the world - all you hear about on the news is all the bad stuff everyday, but what was refreshing to me was after that, you saw how many good people there are out there. For every one bad one, there's a thousand good ones.
41I mean, I am driven and laid-back at the same time.
42A country song is a song about life.
43I'm usually just enjoying life.
44I like to write sad songs. They're much easier to write and you get a lot more emotion into them. But people don't want to hear them as much. And radio definitely doesn't; they want that positive, uptempo thing.
