1. Alan Jackson
Born in 1958, Alan Jackson hails from Newnan, Georgia. Jackson is perhaps best known for his 2002 hit “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning”, a tribute to those killed in the September 11th attacks. The song put him in the spotlight for a few months, and was considered the best part of the 2001 CMA awards. 2015 is Alan 25th Anniversary of releasing albums, starting in 1990 and most recently continuing in 2015 with Angels and Alcohol.
