Country superstar Alan Jackson, who Billboard calls “the country icon,” just landed Angels and Alcohol at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country albums chart selling 45,361 albums, his fourteenth album to do so, and at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 with a first week consumption total of 47,881 units.
Jackson earned massive critical praise for the album the Miami Herald says is a “warm return to form” and “his best in years.” The Tennessean calls Angels and Alcohol “quintessential Alan Jackson, and stone cold country.”
Jackson launched his 15th studio album with a major media blitz that included “NPR First Listen,” “CBS Sunday Morning,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and a live performance on the Toyota Summer Concert Series on NBC’s “TODAY.”
Angels and Alcohol, Jackson’s first studio album of all new music in three years, includes seven self-penned songs including the title track and the album’s first single “Jim and Jack and Hank” is at country radio now. Angels and Alcohol, his 15th studio album, comes 25 years after his debut landmark album Here In The Real World. Since the release of Here In The Real World, Jackson has released 22 albums including two Christmas albums, two gospel albums, three Greatest Hits collections and a Bluegrass album which included standards and eight original songs written by Jackson.
The new album was produced by Jackson’s long-time collaborator and friend Keith Stegall who has produced every one of Jackson’s 23 albums over the past 25 years with the exception of one album – Like Red On A Rose (Alison Krauss).
