Alan Jackson (born October 17, 1958) is an American country music singer and songwriter, who became one of the best-selling country musicians of the 1990s.

And Alan's winning ways continue in the millennium -- he was the 2003 and 2002 ASCAP Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and, in the last two years, has seen six of his compositions rank among the year's most-performed songs.
