With the release of his new EP, Where Have You Gone, Alan Jackson has once again shown the music business what real country music sounds like. In an interview with Hits Daily Double, the country music legend said what he thought about the way country music is now, and he didn’t hold back.
“Country music is gone and won’t come back.” It feels like we’re back in the 1980s. I’m not some hottie in her thirties; I’m 62. It’s not the same, but someone needs to bring it back because it affects not just people in their 50s, but also young people in their 20s. “The older people get, the more hard-core and traditional their tastes become,” I tell all the young people in my neighborhood.
Jackson didn’t hold back when he was asked how he felt about how much his new music sounded like old music.
“This is the real school, not the old school.” And I’m just as upset as you are about what happened to the format, or whatever they want to call it. I know that I don’t have to make my music for country radio.
He went on to say that real country songs are about love, heartbreak, drinking, having good times, and having bad times. Jackson said that the sound of country music is meant to express these feelings and feelings, which he has done with his most recent work.
