Today in 1979, Alan Jackson married his high school sweetheart, Denise Jackson, at the First Baptist Church in Newnan, Georgia. Their love story is referenced in several of Alan Jackson's songs and Denise published a book in 2007 discussing their journey together called It's All About Him: Finding the Love of My Life.
Alan and Denise have 3 beautiful daughters together and their love towards one another is as strong as ever. This country love song certainly goes to prove that.
Remember when I was young and so were you
and time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
Remember when the sound of little feet
was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookn' back it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are,
Where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when
