Vince Gill Inspires Alan Jackson
September 18, 2006--Alan Jackson admits that the urge to do something musically different on his new album may have been fueled by a comment Vince Gill made while introducing him at the CMA Awards a couple of years back.
"I don't know if the script writer wrote it, but he said, 'You always know what you're going to get from Alan Jackson. It's like driving through McDonald's,'" Alan tells Billboard. "I think he meant it as a compliment, but it kind of made me feel like 'Dang, McDonald's, man! I don't want to be like every time somebody buys an album, they are getting just another quarter-pounder with cheese.'"
Now Alan, if you knew Vince like we knew Vince - you would KNOW that's a compliment - country wise.
