Jackson was born in the small town of Newnan, GA, on October 17, 1958. He grew up singing gospel music, both in church and at home with his family, and as a teenager performed locally as part of a country duo. Alan Jackson left school to work and married his high-school sweetheart, Denise. During the early '80s, Jackson held down a series of odd jobs while playing the local club circuit with his band, Dixie Steel, and working on his songwriting. In 1989, Jackson became the first artist signed to Arista's new country division.
