Alan Jackson now has his own star on the Music City Walk of Fame.  Country Countdown USA host Lon Helton was on hand yesterday for the induction.

Alan said it was a ‘beautiful day’ for the event and he considered the recognition ‘a very special honor.’ 

Helton told the crowd ‘it all begins with a song.’    Well for Alan Jackson it began with a 45 RPM single on blue vinyl of ‘Blue Blooded Woman’ in 1989.  The song peaked at #45 on the charts.’  But his followup song, ‘Here in the Real World’ began a string of 12 #1 songs.  Alan Jackson has released more than 60 singles and 35 #1 songs, with 24 of those being one’s he wrote.  Only Merle Haggard, Paul McCartney and John Lennon have taken more songs they’ve written to #1.  That’s pretty impressive.

Alan says he’s ‘won everything you never even thought you could win, and he’s even had people name a dog after him but after all he’s been through and accomplished, he could never imagine standing in the heart of Nashville and having a star the Musci City Walk of Fame.’  He choked up as he thanked his fans who he said made it all possible.  Being the ever humble man Alan is, he ended his speech by saying he didn’t feel quite right being among the other stars on the Walk of Fame who inspired him to move to Nashville.

The Music City Walk of Fame now boasts 58 markers.  In addition to Jackson, the latest round of honorees included Kix Brooks and guitar pioneer Les Paul.  Keith Urban, Reba, Wynonna, Vince Gill, Martina McBride and Hank Jr. all have stars on the Walk of Fame.

Check out the video of Alan Jackson’s induction.
