We’re all waiting on the sun to go down, today. Sure, fun in the sun is great. Despite what some people would have you believe, grilling is awesome. On top of that, there’s nothing like a cold beer in the hot sun. I’ll die on that hill. However, we all know what the big event of the Fourth of July is. Obviously, it’s the fireworks. Some of us, however, are starting our celebration a little early. Alan Jackson is one of those. He posted a great patriotic photo to celebrate America’s birthday.
The tweet contains a photo of Alan Jackson holding his guitar and pointing skyward as the old Stars and Stripes flies behind him. The caption is short, sweet, and to the point. It simply says, “Happy 4th of July,” with an American Flag emoji. Check out the photo below.
There are few country artists who embody the spirit of this nation like Alan Jackson. For instance, when his hometown was decimated by a tornado, he held a benefit show to raise money. That show brought in over $2 million to help the town recover. I don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of America I want to live in.
It goes further than that, though. Alan Jackson’s signature hit, “Chattahoochee,” is so popular because it rings true in small towns across the country. Sure, he was singing about his old stomping grounds. However, those experiences are baked into the life of just about every young American.
Alan Jackson on the 4th of July
Alan Jackson recently shared one of his favorite Fourth of July memories. Honestly, it sounds like the coolest possible way to spend the holiday. First, Alan, Denise, and their girls piled into his antique yacht. They took that boat all the way up the East Coast and anchored in the harbor in New York City.
The ladies all enjoy being in the Big Apple. Alan, on the other hand, doesn’t care for it. So, he let them explore the city while he stayed tied up in the harbor. Which, he thought was pretty cool. Then, it got better. When the time came for the big fireworks show, they anchored in the Hudson River. This gave them a great view of not only the fireworks but also the Statue of Liberty.
Man, the only way it could get any cooler is if an eagle came and perched on the boat to watch the show with them.
Alan Jackson is gearing up for another epic Fourth of July, tonight. He will join Mickey Guyton and a slew of other talented musicians for A Capitol Fourth. That concert special will air on PBS at 8 Eastern Time tonight. The show will include a fireworks display as well as musical performances.
