Alan Jackson is Old School Cool in Throwback ‘Chattahoochee’ Snap

by Clayton Edwards

Alan Jackson hit the scene in the nineties. Even then, he was a little old school. Honestly, it makes my joints hurt just thinking that the nineties are now considered old school But, here we are. We have to face the fact that age is creeping in and the world is moving on. Well, most of the time. Right now, it’s Friday afternoon during the summer. When that whistle blows at the end of the day and the work week ends, we can all forget that we’re getting a little grey around the muzzle.

Alan Jackson’s latest tweet combines his timeless coolness, summer vibes, with a pinch of “Thank God it’s Friday,” energy. At the same time, he’s showing that he has a good sense of humor. Check out the post below and let’s relive our younger and wilder days.

The photo is from the set of Alan Jackson’s “Chattahoochee,” video. He’s on a boat rocking jeans, a jacket, and a cowboy hat. However, no hat is big enough to conceal his glorious nineties-era mullet. Man, those were the days.

The text above the photo says, “Get in. We’re heading way down yonder.” That’s all the invitation some of his followers needed. A few chimed in excitedly saying they were ready to get down to the river. One replied to the post saying that she missed the good old days when Alan had longer hair. Ladies love a mullet. That’s just how the world works.

Others, however, seemed like they had already kicked off their Friday night festivities this afternoon. Who can blame them, though? The weather is great, the world is getting back to normal, and nothing makes a few adult beverages go down easier than a long work week.

I don’t know about you, but I suddenly have a craving for a burger and a grape snow cone.

Some Great Alan Jackson Tunes For Your Friday

It would be hard to properly unwind on a Friday evening without the right soundtrack. Luckily, Alan Jackson has a whole stack of songs that are perfect for a day like today. “Chattahoochee,” is a great start. However, there are plenty more.

For instance, let’s take it back to 1999 with “Pop a Top.” It’s got a little bit of heartache in it. However, that opening line always makes me thirsty. So, crank this one up and follow the directions accordingly. You’ll be on your way to a solid Friday night.

If it has been a long week and you’re not ready to wash it away with some suds, that’s fine. Spin “Summertime Blues,” Alan Jackson released his version of the Eddie Cochran classic as the lead single off of his 1994 record Who I Am. It’s the perfect way to kick off a summer weekend.
