Precious Memories, country legend Alan Jackson's soiree into gospel music, is being re-released six years after it first hit store shelves as a way to keep the album available to fans.
"When I was at Sony we did a co-deal together where it was on half my label and half theirs," Jackson tells the Boot. "I ended up with the rights to the album, basically. So when the deal ran out, they didn't produce any more records, so you couldn't buy any more. And we just had so many people still wanting it, it's just amazing. That thing just sold and sold. So when I got over here [at Capitol EMI] we decided that we'd put it back out."
In addition to the re-release of Precious Memories, Jackson is currently putting the finishing touches on his upcoming new album, which features lead single "So You Don't Have to Love Me Anymore."
