Alan Jackson's Angels and Alcohol album is as country as country gets — something that fans of the format may find refreshing, but something that his longtime fans expect. The 10 songs tell stories of love, heartbreak, drinking and family, but really, the 56-year-old is just doing what his hero asked him to do years ago.
Not long before he died, George Jones penned a final letter to Alan Jackson. He was asking for a favor, one the younger country singer was likely happy to fulfill. Now, as Jackson releases his Angels and Alcohol album he's shared a photo of that letter with Taste of Country readers.
