The country singer-songwriter will be in Abbotsford Sept. 23

Country superstar Alan Jackson is coming to Abbotsford later this year, and tickets go on sale May 30 at 10 a.m.

The music legend performed in Abbotsford November 2009 in front of a sold-out crowd of 6,000 fans.

He is one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music, and is in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who’ve written more than 20 songs that have gone to the top of the charts.

Jackson is one of the 10 best-selling artists since the inception of SoundScan. His current album, The Bluegrass Album, was released last September and is still in the charts after spending more than four months at number one on Billboard’s Bluegrass Album Sales Chart.

Jackson has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide, topped the country singles charts 35 times, and scored more than 50 top-10 hits. He has written or co-written 24 of his 35 number one hit singles. Jackson is an 18-time ACM Award winner, a 16-time CMA Award recipient, and a two-time Grammy-winning artist whose songwriting has earned him the ASCAP Founders Award and an induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame as a 2011 Songwriter/Artist inductee.

Tickets for Jackson’s Sept. 23 show range from $39 to $89 (plus charges) and are available at abbotsfordcentre.ca, the venue box office, Ticketmaster or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
