Country Music Hall of Fame member Alan Jackson kicked off his Last Call: One More for the Road Tour in front of sellout crowds this weekend as he played the first two cities on the tour — Biloxi, MS and Knoxville, TN. He thrilled audiences in both cities with setlists that spanned his three-decade-plus career that features 35 chart-topping singles and many multi-Platinum albums. He treated the to-the-rafters crowds to nearly two dozen hits each night, including a rousing “Rocky Top” as part of his Saturday encore on the University of Tennessee campus.
Jackson’s tour continues over the next four months, with shows scheduled into the fall. Presented by Silverbelly Whiskey and promoted by Live Nation, Jackson’s Last Call: One More for the Road Tour follows his fall 2021 announcement that he is living with CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth), a chronic inherited neuropathy condition. $1 from every ticket sold for the trek will be donated to the CMT Research Foundation, and will be matched by a group of CMTRF donors and board members.
Last week, Jackson unveiled his Silverbelly Whiskey, a new premium spirit distilled exclusively for – and hand-selected by – the country superstar. Available in 750ml bottles and 91 proof with 45.5% alc/vol., Silverbelly Whiskey is described as having an aroma of brown sugar, sweet apple, cherry, honey, and a taste that’s sweet smooth, and spicy; bright fall fruits with a light, silky texture on the mid-palate; soft caramelized oak tones are met with a savory wood spice on the finish.
