Alan Jackson sits down to talk about his new album, Good Time.
"Good Time" is a honky-tonk jam that kicks off Alan Jackson's new Arista Nashville album for a tremendously easygoing yet edgy five minutes-plus. It's a Friday night country tune sung by a dog-tired guy who has worked straight through the week yet doesn't want to sleep—not now; not when "all the conditions are right," as Jackson sings, for something sweeter. The guy has cashed his check, cleaned his truck, picked up his girl across town, and as the sun goes down, he's heading out for some fun—some beer, some Bocephus, some relief. Jackson's new collection—for which he wrote all seventeen songs—is named "Good Time," as well. Loose, inventive, traditional, high-spirited, sad, intense, laid-back, clear as a bell, the album is a great Alan Jackson hang. "I guess I felt like I needed something that wasn't entirely a big, heavy album," says Jackson, whose last release, 2006's profoundly acclaimed Like Red on a Rose, was an adventurous exploration of country-soul with producer Alison Krauss.
