Happy Father’s Day, Alan Jackson! The country legend’s three daughters took over his Twitter account to send a sweet message on their dad’s special day.
“Wishing Alan and all dads a Happy Father’s Day!” the tweet on Alan’s account (@OfficialJackson) reads. “From Mattie, Ali, Dani, and all of the Jackson family. #HappyFathersDay.” The video with the tweet also features all three daughters waving and wishing their dad (and other dads) a great holiday.
One of Alan Jackson’s fans took to Twitter and shared their admiration for the girls. “What beautiful girls! Y’all are so very blessed to have a Good God Fearing Dad. I know he cherishes y’all. I wish him Happy Father’s Day as well and I hope y’all have a wonderfully blessed day celebrating with him today!”
All three girls inspired Alan’s new song, “You’ll Always Be My Baby.” The country artist previously revealed that he wrote the track for Mattie’s wedding in 2017. The lyrics read, “But you’ll always be my baby / No matter where you are / You’ll always be my baby / Forever in my heart.”
Alan Jackson’s Life Away From His Music Career
Alan Jackson married his high school sweetheart, Denise Jackson, in December 1979. The couple had Mattie in June 1990, Ali in 1993, and Dani in 1997. They reportedly separated for a few months in the late 90s due to Alan’s music career and reported infidelity, but later reconciled. Jackson has referenced their marriage in various songs, including “She Likes it Too” and “Remember When.”
Alan’s daughters notably appeared in the video of his hit single “Drive.” Since then, the girls have all grown up! Mattie recently just turned 31 and is a certified sommelier. She also once owned a wine bar in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2019, Mattie tragically lost her husband of less than a year, Ben Selecman, after he sustained a traumatic brain injury while vacationing in Florida. Since then, Mattie and her friend, Brooke Tometich, started a venture called “NaSHEville,” which is dedicated to helping women and children in need.
Alan’s middle daughter Ali has a close relationship with her dad. In her speech at his Country Music Hall of Family induction, Ali said, “I see you as: my best friend, the guy who taught me that how you treat people matters more than anything else and taught me just how to sand on my own two feet.” She then gushes, “You’re every daughter’s dream father. Thank you for raising us in a house filled with Jesus and music, and always making sure we knew whatever our dream was could be our reality.”
Jackson’s youngest Dani notably has an interest in fashion. But she isn’t really in the public eye with the exception of various family events.
