Trivia / Alan Jackson

  • Creator's Oddball: Both of the Precious Memories albums were covers of Christian hymns and gospel standards, with more stripped-down production. They were both followed by further examples: the first volume was followed by the slick, smooth, mellow Like Red on a Rose (also his only album not to be produced by Keith Stegall), and the second by The Bluegrass Album.
  • Name's the Same: He waited until 1996 to release "Home", a cut from his debut album, so that it wouldn't get confused with Joe Diffie's 1990 release of the same name.
  • Throw It In!: Jackson began whistling at the end of "Right on the Money", unaware that the tape was still running. He and Keith Stegall both liked the sound and left it in.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: "www.memory" could only have come out during the Internet explosion at the Turn of the Millennium, but the video really drives it home by having the protagonist driving a Chrysler PT Cruiser, a car that was very popular at the time but quickly faded from consciousness.
  • What Could Have Been...: "It's Alright to Be a Redneck" was supposed to have been the fourth single off When Somebody Loves You, but it was pulled after only a few weeks so that Alan could release "Where Were You" in the wake of 9/11.
