About Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson was born in the small town of Newnan, Georgia, on October 17, 1958. He grew up singing gospel music, both in church and at home with his family, and as a teenager he performed locally as part of a country duo. He left school to work and married his high-school sweetheart, Denise, who worked as an airline stewardess. In 1989, Jackson became the first artist signed to Arista’s new country division. Jackson’s debut album, Here in the Real World, was issued in 1990 and became a platinum-selling hit on the strength of four Top Five hits: the title cut, “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Wanted,” and the first of many chart-toppers, “I’d Love You All Over Again.” He shot to full-fledged superstardom with the follow-up, 1991’s Don’t Rock the Jukebox, whose title track was an inescapable number one smash that year.

Alan Jackson – Here in the Real World

Here In The Real World Lyrics

Cowboys don’t cry, and heroes don’t die
Good always wins, again and again
And love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, I’d never be blue

But here in the real world
It’s not that easy at all
‘Cause when hearts get broken
It’s real tears that fall
And darlin’ it’s sad but true
But the one thing I’ve learned from you
Is how the boy don’t always get the girl
Here in the real world

I gave you my love, but that wasn’t enough
To hold your heart, when times got rough
And tonight on that silver screen
It’ll end like it should
Two lovers will make it through
Like I hoped we would

But here in the real world
It’s not that easy at all
‘Cause when hearts get broken
It’s real tears that fall
And darlin’ it’s sad but true
But the one thing I’ve learned from you
Is how the boy don’t always get the girl
Here in the real world

No, the boy don’t always get the girl
Here in the real world

Song by Merle Haggard

My brain is cloudy my soul is upside down
Lord my brain is cloudy my soul is upside down
When I get the slow down feelin’ I know the blues must be someplace around
Well you gotta treat me right honey day by day
Get out your little prayer book get upon your knees and pray
You’re gonna need you’re gonna need my love someday
And you’re goin’ to be sorry oh you treated me this way
Well good evenin’ don’t that sun look good goin’ down
I said well good evenin’ don’t that sun look good goin’ down

Willie Nelson Sings “Family Bible” – Live (1999)

Willie Nelson performed his song “Family Bible” live with some great country singers. He began writing this song in 1957. His inspiration for the song came from his grandmother, Nancy Elizabeth Smothers, who would sing “Rock of Ages” and read from the Bible after supper.

Willie Nelson is a country music icon. A unique and versatile artist, his innovative songwriting has resulted in No. 1 hits for dozens of artists – including more than twenty for himself – and a recorded output that is “so vast,” music journalist Bob Allen writes, “as to confound all but the most dedicated discographers.”

Willie Nelson’s awards are numerous, including 11 CMAs, 12 GRAMMYs, and 6 ACMs. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993, received the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 1999, and won the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize in 2015. In 2003, CMT placed him at No. 4 among the “Greatest Men of Country.” And, in 2008, his distinctive vocal style – once considered a deficit – earned him the No. 88 spot on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.

Willie Nelson Family Bible

Family Bible Lyrics

There’s a family Bible on the table
Each page is worn and hard to read
But the family Bible on the table
Will ever be my key to memories

At the end of day when work was over
And when the evenin’ meal was done
Dad would read to us from the family Bible
And we’d count our many blessings, one by one

I can see us sittin’ round the table
When from the family Bible dad would read
I can hear my mother softly singing
Rock of ages
Rock of ages cleft for me

Now this old world
Of ours is filled with troubles
This old world would also better be
If we’d found more Bibles on the tables
And mothers singin’ rock of ages, cleft for me

I can see us sittin’ round the table
When from the family Bible dad would read
And I can hear my mother softly singin’
Rock of ages
Rock of ages cleft for me

Rock of ages
Rock of ages cleft for me
