Alan Jackson - Honky Tonk Highway Tour @ Spectrum Center
During an era of tremendous musical change, Jackson built his reputation by being a steadfast standard-bearer for traditional country music. While others stoked debates about what does or does not constitute country music, Jackson provided the measuring stick. No one ever questioned the music Jackson created. His songs are, and always have been, the very definition of country music.
