Country music icon Alan Jackson is scheduled to re-release a live DVD recording entitled Precious Memories, Live at the Ryman on Friday, August 11th, the video features Jackson’s stage performances of songs from his first gospel recording, Precious Memories, originally released in 2006.

Recorded to honor his mother’s request that he release an album of gospel classics, the Precious Memories audio recording quickly made its way to the top of the sales charts and into the hearts of fans, selling over 1.8 million copies and earning a Platinum certification by the RIAA.

Taped at the historic Ryman, known as “The Mother Church of Country Music” in Nashville, the DVD collection, produced by Martin Fischer and directed by James Burton Yockey, captures Jackson’s familiar, warm tones singing signature renditions of traditional hymns and gospel favorites. The DVD also includes behind-the-scenes interviews with him, his mother, and his wife Denise, as he reflects on his musical roots.

“I grew up singing just about every one of these songs. And I love that sound, of that organ, and that music really stuck with me and, I’m sure, affected how I hear songs now and write songs, ‘cause a lot of those old songs are really pretty, simple melodies that stick with you. These songs mean a lot to me. And I’m proud that Gaither is re-releasing the DVD. It was a very special moment to perform these songs at the Ryman with my mama in the audience,” Jackson shared about the project.
