After two decades with Arista Records Nashville, Alan Jackson signed with EMI Records Nashville to distribute his own label, Alan’s Country Records (ACR). The first single “A Long Way To Go” didn’t score too well with radio but still managed a Top 30 march while the brilliant new single “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore” is now out at radio and catching the ears of audience and fans. On June 5, Thirty Miles West will be birthed into the world, giving traditionalist country music fans a reason to smile.
“I grew up on Highway 34 outside of Newnan, Georgia, and that’s where we came up with Thirty Miles West,” said Jackson. “I think we were about thirty miles west of the official part of the Dixie Highway that runs through Georgia.”
The record is once again produced by hitmaker Keith Stegall (CCO of Bigger Picture), the producer for all but one of Alan Jackson’s albums. The record will feature Jackson’s trademark blue-collar country and his good-natured humor.
