The Older I Get

Album: Yet to be titled (2017)
  • This Adam Wright, Hailey Whitters and Sarah Turner penned cut finds Alan Jackson singing about reaching his late 50s.

    "This song reflects a lot of how I feel these days," the country star said. "It's a good song; I really liked it, but the message was a little different when I first heard it. I thought maybe it could be a little more positive about being older and wiser and more content, so they rewrote a few things, and this is how it ended up."
  • The single was released on October 20, 2017, three days after Jackson's 59th birthday. It was his first studio recording of a new song since 2015.
