Recorded to honor his mother’s request that he release an album of gospel classics, Alan Jackson’s Precious Memories CD quickly made its way to the top of the sales charts and into the hearts of fans, selling over 1.8 million copies. The concert that followed was taped at the historic Ryman, known as “The Mother Church of Country Music” in Nashville, TN, and features signature renditions of traditional hymns and gospel favorites. The program also includes behind-the-scenes interviews with him, his mother and his wife as he reflects on his musical roots. Jackson says of the project, “I grew up singing just about every one of these songs. And I love that sound, of that organ, and that music really stuck with me and, I’m sure, affected how I hear songs now and write songs, ‘cause a lot of those old songs are really pretty, simple melodies that stick with you. These songs mean a lot to me. It was a very special moment to perform these songs at the Ryman with my Mama in the audience.” Song List: Blessed Assurance In The Garden I Love To Tell The Story Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus When We All Get To Heaven Softly And Tenderly Standing On The Promises What A Friend We Have In Jesus Leaning On The Everlasting Arms The Old Rugged Cross How Great Thou Art I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You
