Alan Jackson's last album, Where Have You Gone, was in 2021. In September of that same year, he announced that he has a degenerative nerve condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease that makes it difficult for him to walk. However, when asked about the possibility of producing a new album during a recent podcast hosted by his daughter, Mattie Jackson, he responded:
"Well, yes. I would hope so. I mean, I may not have toured much, but like I said, the creative part jumps out every now and then. I'm always scribbling down ideas and thinking about melodies, and I feel like there'll be some more music to come, yes." (In Joy Life Podcast)
He also mentioned in the podcast that he finds songwriting fulfilling and challenging. He is also finding great joy in his new grandson Jackson and is looking forward to his daughter's upcoming wedding.
I am looking forward to his coming new music!
