7 Things We Learned From the ‘Alan Jackson: Small Town Southern Man’ Documentary

Spoiler Alert: it didn't go well for a long time.

A documentary spotlighting Alan Jackson’s career highlights includes interviews with the singer’s sisters, and they’ve got stories to tell. For example, the Country Music Hall of Famer first announced his plans to move to Nashville to an older sister, but he didn’t get the response he expected.

Early on during Alan Jackson: Small Town Southern Man (available digitally and on DVD), viewers learn that no one in his family even knew he could sing! As you’ll see below, it wasn’t exactly common knowledge. Jackson was somewhere between mild-mannered and painfully shy growing up in Newnan, Ga., in the 1960s and ’70s. A country music career was this lifelong dream he’d talked about since he was barely taller than a peanut.
