In 1989, he released his debut album “Here In The Real World” which went multi-platinum and made him an instant country music star. He followed this up with five more successful albums including “Don’t Rock The Jukebox” (1991), “A Lot About Livin’ (And A Little ‘Bout Love)” (1992), “Who I Am” (1994), “Everything I Love” (1996) and “High Mileage” (1998).

In 2006, Jackson released his first gospel album titled Precious Memories which was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. He has since released two more gospel albums: Let It Be Christmas (2012) and Angels & Alcohol (2015). 

Jackson continues to tour extensively throughout the United States with dates taking place as recently as 2020 despite the COVID-19 pandemic. He is widely considered one of the most influential country singers of all time.
