Alan Eugene Jackson was born on October 17, 1958, in Newnan, Georgia. He listened to songs by Gene Watson, John Anderson, and Hank Williams, Jr., and began to love country music. In high school, he started a band called Dixie Steel. In the early 1980's, Alan Jackson moved to Nashville with his wife, Denise. Denise met Glen Campbell of Seventh Son Music waiting for a flight in an airport one day and gave him a tape of her husband's music. Campbell liked the tape and hired Alan Jackson as a staff songwriter for Seventh Son. This was Jackson's golden ticket to the music industry. In 1989, Alan Jackson signed with Arista Records, becoming the first artist in their country music division.
