Alan Jackson on His Farewell Tour: ‘I’ve Had a Wonderful, Wonderful Career’ [WATCH]

Alan Jackson is explaining his decision to come off of the road. The 65-year-old recently announced he was embarking on his final Last Call: One More For The Road Tour, a decision he says he made due to his family, and his health.

“I’ve been touring for over 30 years, played everywhere, in countries and parts of the world,” Jackson says in a video he shared on social media. “I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful career, and I’m getting into my twilight years. All my daughters are grown, and I’ve got one grandchild, and one on the way. I enjoy spending more time at home, and don’t want to be away like I had been in my younger days. And I don’t tour as much now as I did of course ten years ago, but I think it’s getting time to start thinking about hanging it up full-time.”

Jackson also opened up about his ongoing battle with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, which he dealt with quietly for several years, before going public with the news in 2021.

“Most of my fans know I have a degenerative health condition that affects my legs and arms and mobility that I got from my daddy, and it’s getting worse,” Jackson explains. “And so, it makes me more uncomfortable on stage. I just have a hard time. I want to think about maybe calling it quits before I am unable to do the job like I want to.”


When the Country Music Hall of Fame member first announced his farewell tour, which began in 2022,  he said he was following the inspiration of some of his biggest musical inspirations.

“I’ve always admired my heroes like George Jones, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn and Charley Pride who just played as much as they wanted to, as long as they could,” Jackson said at the time. “I’ve always thought I’d like to do that, and I’d like to as long as my health will allow. I’ll try to do as much as I can, but if I’m comin’ your way, come see me.”
