Does it get any better than Alan Jackson singing gospel music? Apart of his thirteenth studio album, Precious Memories, the country music artist gave a modern makeover to the classic gospel song “How Great Thou Art.”
He celebrated his gospel album by performing a concert at the Ryman Auditorium. It was filmed for a television special, which still airs to this day!
With an acoustic guitar in hand, Jackson performed his breathtaking rendition of the Christian hymn live in an unforgettable performance.
He released Precious Memories back in 2006 and was comprised solely of traditional gospel tune. The album reached number one on not only the Billboard’s Christian Albums chart, but also on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart as well.
Along with “How Great Thou Art,” the album included the classics “Softly and Tenderly,” “I’ll Fly Away,” “What A Friend We Have In Jesus,” “Are You Washed In the Blood,” and “Blessed Assurance,” among other gospel favorites.
