Alan Jackson, often described as a blend of mainstream blended with back road honky tonk, was the second most successful and popular country artist of the 1990s behind only Garth Brooks. In 1989, after working a number of odd jobs to pay the bills, Jackson was the first artist to sign to Arista's country division and soon after, he released "Here in the Real World" which immediately went platinum behind four number one hits. His follow up, "Don't Rock the Jukebox," was released in 1991 and propelled Jackson to superstardom. Jackson had his first number album with the 1992 release of "A Lot About Living' (And a Little 'Bout Love)." Jackson's first Greatest Hits collection was released in only his fifth year on the country music scene but took less than a year to sell more than three million copies. In his first 12 years, Jackson was responsible for 20 number one hits and an additional 20 top-ten singles and his sales have topped the $43 million mark for his career. Of the 31 number one singles he's had, he's written 21 of them and has won numerous awards from a number of different organizations.
