I will be honest with you; I have started this and stopped it all week, just could not find a way to piece it together without using the same cliché’s about a Phil Vassar concert.

The Alan Jackson “Keepin’ it Country Tour” rolled into The Nokia Theater in Los Angeles Friday night, February 27th. It is a tour that celebrates Alan’s 25 years of well, keepin’ it country.
