Alan Jackson to play Ryman in March

Alan Jackson.

Country music legend Alan Jackson will be playing a headlining charity date at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on March 20th. The 5th annual “Stars Go Blue” event will feature a rare intimate and personal performance by Alan in support of the United States’ largest colon cancer patient advocacy fund – the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA). All proceeds from Alan’s concert will benefit the organization.

In 2010, Alan’s wife Denise was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. He shares:

“It knocked us both down. It was so hard to watch her go through that. We were dating at 16 and 17, and I pretty much took care of her from that point on. But when it came to this, I felt like there wasn’t a thing I could do.”

Tickets for “Stars Go Blue” go on sale Fri., Jan. 18 at 10:00am Central and can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, Ryman Box Office, www.ryman.com and by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are $75, $45 and $35.

Alan recently released a limited number of copies of his book Seasons of Sweetbriar – A Photographic Collection of Home by Alan Jackson. Seasons of Sweetbriar can be purchased through www.alanjackson.com for $25 or $50 for a book autographed by Alan, while supplies last. 100 percent of proceeds will be donated to the CCA’s Blue NoteFund.
