The Quiet Approach

“You know, the more that life goes on and everybody’s yapping and hollering, I like his style more and more.”

Shares Vince Gill, in Chris Willman’s June 10, 2009 Nashville Scene cover story on superstar Alan Jackson.

Vince Gill has won 20 Grammy awards – more than any other male Country music artist.

Alan Jackson has sold over 50 million albums in his 20 year career, and will easily go down as one of the most legendary Country music artists in history. And a lot of it has to do with his style.

Alan has taken an extremely different/interesting/peculiar approach to the music industry. The fact is, he doesn’t seem to care much about it. He hasn’t let it dictate his every move. From what I can tell, sitting at home is far more intriguing to him than the red carpet of music’s biggest night.

The quiet approach isn’t a bad thing. It’s something to learn from.

But none of this matters if you aren’t a killer musician, with killer material, when you do take the stage.

Jackson can approach the madness with this style because he is all of these things.

  1. John,

    Your words about Alan Jackson are beautiful. My father would’ve loved what you expressed for the world to see, as he considered Alan Jackson the greatest country singer of all time.

    Keep up the great work!


  2. Thank you Susan. That means a lot because I don’t think I remembered his admiration for Alan.

    If we were all more like your father, this world would be a better place.
