Country singer Alan Jackson isn’t happy that traditional country music seems to be going away. New music styles come around all the time and country music seems to be changing rapidly. He is trying to keep the country music style from the past around with a new album called Where Have You Gone.

He scoffed, “Country music is gone — and it’s not coming back.” He expanded, “Real country songs are life and love and heartache. They’re drinking, singing about Mama and having a good time, sad things, fun things.”

Alan Jackson apparently hates modern country music

He continued, “It reflects the sounds of the instruments I grew up on, steel and acoustic guitar, the fiddle and the way they all came together. It gave you a sound, but also a real feeling or emotions no other music really had.”
