Alan Jackson Questions Major Country Star on How ‘Country’ His Music Is

Alan Jackson Questions Major Country Star on How ‘Country’ His Music Is

Was he wrong?

 

Alan Jackson recently did an interview with GQ Magazine, and claimed that Chris Stapleton isn’t making real country music.

 

GASP!!

 

 

 

Jackson told the magazine:

“”I mean, even Chris Stapleton—I love Chris, he’s authentic. A real writer. Musician. He opened for me for awhile before he hit so big. I’m a big fan of his. He was a bluegrass singer and has written bluegrass stuff. But what he’s making now really isn’t real country: It’s more like bluesy, Southern rock kinda stuff. I love it, it’s great, but he’s the closest thing to country out there.”

 

OK, maybe ‘Midnight Train to Memphis’ isn’t a great example of one of Chris Stapleton’s country songs.  So, how about this one?

 

What do you think? Is Alan Jackson right or wrong?
