Alan Jackson has always been proud of his faith, and has never shied away from singing about it. In 2006, Jackson decided to combine his love of music and his love for his faith into one in order to make his first gospel album, called Precious Memories.
Jackson’s Precious Memories contains a total of 15 tracks, including some classic gospel favorites such as “In The Garden” and “I’ll Fly Away.” But it is the last track on the album that is truly breathtaking, called “I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You.”
For his rendition of the song, Jackson keeps things simple, singing softly as just a few instruments play softly in the background. The result is stunning, and after listening to his rendition of the song, it’s clear why the album went on to be certified Platinum by the RIAA.
Due to the success of Precious Memories, Jackson recorded a second gospel album, called Precious Memories Volume II in 2013.
Out of all of Jackson’s gospel performances, “I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You” is definitely one of our favorites. You can watch Jackson perform the song live in the video below.
