For someone as used to fame and being onstage putting on a show as country singer Alan Jackson is, Christmas is a time to chill out at home with the family and living a simple, traditional life.


Jackson won’t mind being called a traditionalist. He shared his holiday plans recently, proving that he likes to do things the old-school way, and even when his daughters are all in their 20’s, it is all still about the magic of the Christmas tree.

Christmas morning for the father-of-three is a moment to be with his girls Mattie, Ali, and Dani, and his wife Denise, and after years of perfecting the rituals of the festivities, the singer doesn’t want to change a thing about it.

Apart from the presents, Jackson doesn’t want any surprises for Christmas. It is relaxing for him to know what to expect every other year. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa


“Christmas is pretty traditional. We don’t let anybody open any presents until Christmas morning. We don’t let them get up on their own and take off. Everybody has to wait and kind of get situated, and maybe have a cup of coffee, and then we start all of the regular Christmas morning activities: opening presents, taking pictures and video."

-Alan Jackson, Universal Music Nashville, December 2018.


Being a successful and prolific singer-songwriter, Jackson said that music is an important part of the celebration, and he is not short on holiday music of his own, having released two Christmas albums during his career of more than 30 years.

"We have music going. I try to keep Christmas music going in the background. I like to turn that on before I let them come down to the tree and everything,” the “Chattahoochee” singer told GQ.


This is being a difficult year for the family, as his oldest daughter Mattie tragically lost her husband of less than a year, Ben Selecman, in September, so they really could use this special time together to heal this deep wound.

The country singer has received 2 Grammy Awards, 16 CMA Awards, 17 ACM Awards and he was a nominee of many other awards. Like most deserving country artists, Jackson is a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

The artist, who just turned 60 in October, released his most recent album “Angels and Alcohol” three years ago, but he has been touring ever since, and he just announced many concert dates for 2019.
