Angels and Alcohol

Album: Angels and Alcohol (2015)
  • Alan Jackson named his twentieth studio album after this traditional track, which is one of seven he penned for the record. "It sounded like a good title to me," Jackson said. "This song is about such a wide expanse of your life. It's about life and love and crying and dying and heartache and drinking and having a good time and Friday nights – all things, to me, that have always been a part of country music."

    "Country music is always about so many things," he added. "I felt like this title - Angels and Alcohol - kind of is [from] one end to the other."
