Alan Jackson's 18th album Freight Train was produced by longtime collaborator Keith Stegall and features 12 songs, one of which is Jackson's hot new single "It's Just That Way." Eight of the album's dozen tracks bear Jackson's songwriting credit, including one he penned with Roger Murrah, with whom he wrote one of his biggest hits, "Don't Rock the Jukebox." In a moving tribute to the legendary Vern Gosdin, who passed away last year and for whom Jackson has long expressed admiration, Jackson enlisted Lee Ann Womack to record "Till the End," Gosdin's 1977 classic duet with Janie Fricke.

This is what TRUE country music is all about. No gimmicks, no hollywood tricks....Pure Country music. Great to hear the steel guitar again.
Alan Jackson shows his usual great singer/songwriter talents on this CD. I love his music going back to his first album (vinyl)! I recommend this to anyone who loves great country music!
If you like Alan Jackson, you will love this latest release. If you don't then leave it for those of us that do. Every song has a great beat, singalong ability is outstanding, typical of Alan's work. He covers the young, the middle aged and the older folks with class that is PURE ALAN!! I waited for a long time for this album, it was worth the wait!
B&N service is wonderful and to get such a great CD as Alan Jackson so quickly was a real treat. He has a wonderful voice, a favorite of mine.
