Alan Jackson is returning to the gospel scene, as he plans to release Precious Memories Volume II this month. Traditional hymns have always been a big part of the singer’s life, even before he recorded his first gospel album for his mother as a Christmas gift. Alan was singing songs in church as a child, which he says carried on throughout life. “I went on to sing as a teenager. They had some organizations and choirs, and I remember singing in those some. And those were some of the early development for me as a singer, and that was probably the early days of getting a little confidence as a singer. The church and the activities that went with it affected me as a singer.” The collection of traditional hymns is the follow-up to his 2006 album Precious Memories, which topped three Billboard charts the first week it was released - Top Country Albums, Top Christian Albums and Top Christian & Gospel Albums. Precious Memories Volume II will be available March 26th.
