His first two were co-produced by Scott Hendricks (as was one song on the third), and his 2013 bluegrass album had his nephew Adam Wright as co-producer.

* LyricalShoehorn: Pretty much all of the last two verses of "Where I Come From", which are composed of awkward phrasings and rhymes that barely make sense (for instance, "use my finger" is how he describes hitchhiking).

* TruckDriversGearChange: A few occasions: "Remember When" begins in G, modulates down to D for a solo, and then goes up to A for the final verses. "The Talkin' Song Repair Blues" does the half-step-by-verse variant, going from D to E-flat to E. He also wrote Clay Walker's "If I Could Make a Living", which begins in F, then repeats the chorus in G and again in A at the end.

* HeavyMeta: Besides the three-minute example listed below, this is also present in "The Talkin' Song Repair Blues," where a songwriter takes his car in for repairs and is given a bunch of fixup suggestions. The repairman then notices that his customer is a songwriter, and offers him a song which the songwriter then offers fix-up suggestions on in a similar fashion:
-->Well, I gave him my most sorrowful look\\
And I said, "This song's got a broken hook\\
I can order you a new one from Nashville, but it won't be cheap\\
And I know you've been using a cut-rate thesaurus\\
'Cause your adverbs are backed up into your chorus\\
And your verse is runnin' on verbs that are way too weak"

* NewMediaAreEvil: Subverted in "I Still Like Bologna", where he says that he is perfectly fine with technological advancements such as the Internet, cell phones, plasma television, and the like, and can appreciate their place in modern society -- but that no amount of technology can replace the beauty of nature or a woman's love, or just something simple like bologna on white bread.

Alan Eugene Jackson was born October 17, 1958 in Newnan, Georgia. started out unassumingly enough in 1989 on Arista Records, which at the time had virtually no experience in the country music business. He was even working with Keith Stegall, a former solo singer with no production experience. Although his debut single "Blue Blooded Woman" flopped, he first cracked the Top 40 in 1990 with "Here in the Real World" and enjoyed nearly 20 years of hits. Coinciding with his departure from Arista, he provided duet vocals on Music/ZacBrownBand's "As She's Walking Away". With his fortunes fading at radio in TheNewTens, Jackson has moved to his own label, Alan's Country Records, with distribution by EMI.

** Similarly, the third chorus of "I Still Like Bologna" changes "the sound of a whippoorwill down a country road" to "a Chevelle headin' down a gravel road".
