Country superstar Alan Jackson will kick off the Fourth of July celebration early for members of the military and their families at Fort Sill, Oklahoma in the nation’s heartland this weekend. On Saturday evening June 30, Jackson will perform at the Polo Field on the base and the show is open to the public. Special guests joining Jackson for the event are Easton Corbin and Gloriana.
Fort Sill is a storied Army facility founded more than 140 years ago on the plains of Oklahoma; it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1960 and is home to Army artillery and officer training programs.
Jackson’s ongoing 2012 tour also includes shows this week at Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver (Thursday) and a Lubbock, TX show at the United Spirit Arena (Friday).
Jackson’s acclaimed new album, Thirty Miles West, was released early this month – it debuted at #1 on Billboard’s country sales chart (and at #2 on the overall Top 200 Album chart). The album – which features the hit “So You Don’t Have to Love Me Anymore” and “Dixie Highway,” a duet with Zac Brown – has remained in the Top 3 on the country chart since its release.
