St. Augustine, FL – Country superstar Alan Jackson brings his 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine on April 24. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, Dec. 12.

Joining Jackson on his Keepin’ It Country Tour, which is sponsored by Kubota Tractor Corporation, will be Capitol Records Nashville’s rising new artist Jon Pardi and Grammy/CMA/ACM nominated hit singer/songwriter Brandy Clark.

Jackson’s 25th Anniversary Keepin’ It Country Tour will be a memorable celebration for his longtime fans as well as legions of new fans who are discovering his music through the many songs that have withstood the test of time and influenced many new artists of today like the tour’s special guests Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark.

Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous including his massive debut hit, “Here In The Real World” to “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” the summertime party-anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” and many more.

Jackson’s tour is an extension of the already year-long 25th anniversary celebration which kicked off this summer with the opening of his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, “Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country,” which will run through March 2015.

In his 25-year career, Jackson has been steadfast in his love for traditional music while enjoying major chart success. Since signing his record deal in June 1989, he has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide and ranks as one of the 10 best-selling country artists of all-time. He has released more than 60 singles—registering 50 Top Ten hits and 35 #1s (including 26 Billboard No. 1 hits).

He has earned more than 150 music industry awards—including 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, a pair of Grammys and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards. He is also a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.

JON PARDI

California native and Capitol Records rising country star Jon Pardi released his debut album, Write You A Song, on Jan. 14, 2014. The release features his Gold-certified Top 10 tune “Up All Night,” along with hits “What I Can’t Put Down,” “Missin’ You Crazy” and his brand new “When I’ve Been Drinkin’.”

Pardi has a laid back, fun-loving approach towards life and it comes through in his music and his raucous live show. His charisma and authenticity strike a chord with county audiences, as he wins over fans one-by-one and show-by-show.

BRANDY CLARK

Clark’s debut album, 12 Stories, was named the best album of 2013 in any genre by New York Magazine’s Jody Rosen, New York Post’s Michelangelo Matos, NPR’s Ann Powers, Slate, and Boston Globe’s Sara Rodman. The album was the No. 2 record for Fresh Air’s Ken Tucker and a top 10 choice for Los Angeles Times’ Randall Roberts and The New Yorker’s Sasha Frere-Jones, among many others.

She earned two 2014 CMA nominations (one for New Artist of the Year, the other for Song of the Year for co-writing Kacey Musgraves’ hit “Follow Your Arrow” with Musgraves and Shane McAnally) and won the 2014 Music Row Breakthrough Artist Award. Clark was nominated for her first GRAMMY Award earlier this year for Best Country Song for “Mama’s Broken Heart,” (a song she co-wrote with McAnally and Musgraves) which Miranda Lambert took to No. 1.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, Dec. 12 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall box offices. Enjoy complimentary tea and snacks from The Spice & Tea Exchange and Alan Jackson tunes at the Amphitheatre on Friday morning.
