Coushatta Casino Resort Presents Country Superstar Alan Jackson
September 9, 2010
Kinder, La- Coushatta Casino Resort presents country crooner and superstar Alan Jackson, along with special guests Chris Young and The Band Perry on Saturday, Nov. 13th in the Pavilion at Coushatta. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Show starts at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, and Coushatta Box Office. A $10 discount per ticket is available for the casino’s Advantage Club members when tickets are purchased at the casino’s box office.
It’s a great opportunity for fans to preview this year’s CMAs since Jackson received his 79th CMA Nomination yesterday in the category of Musical Event of the Year for his duet with Lee Ann Womack on the Vern Gosdin classic “Till the End” from Freight Train, and Young and The Band Perry received nominations also.
Two decades into his career, Alan Jackson continues to inspire audiences across several generations with his modern approach to classic country. On Freight Train, Jackson recorded “Till the End” as a tribute to Vern Gosdin. He said, “That song’s always been one of those that pops up in my head every now and then that I’ve wanted to cover as a duet with somebody. It gave me the opportunity to finally sing with Lee Ann Womack. She just blew me away.” And recently, he collaborated with the Zac Brown Band on “As She’s Walking Away,” the first single from their September album.
Jackson’s current album FREIGHT TRAIN, released earlier this year, garnered critical acclaim, with the Los Angeles Times writing, “Instead of talking or singing about how (down-home rural and authentic he is), he quietly and effectively just does it. Freight Train…encompasses a dozen songs most of which he wrote or co-wrote and that embody country music traditions of empathy for the blue collar worker, illuminating self-reflection and witty phrase turning.”
