Alan Jackson's "The Older I Get" music video takes country music fans on a journey though the hit-maker's entire life. Enjoy the visually story here!

Country music icon Alan Jackson gives fans an intimate look into his 59 years on this planet via his new “The Older I Get” music video. In the clip, fans can spot highlights from Jackson’s storied country music career as well as his personal life.

Enjoy the official music video below!

We love seeing snapshots of his wife Denise and their three daughters included.

“This song reflects a lot of how I feel these days,” Jackson says of the song, written by Adam Wright, Hailey Whitters and Sarah Allison Turner. “It’s a good song; I really liked it, but the message was a little different when I first heard it. I thought maybe it could be a little more positive about being older and wiser and more content, so they rewrote a few things, and this is how it ended up.”

The reflective ballad is filled with the revelations and realizations that can only come from a life well-lived, and the words and melody create an instant image of Jackson’s own place in life and country music.

“The Older I Get” Lyrics

The older I get
The more I think
You only get a minute, better live while you’re in it
‘Cause it’s gone in a blink
And the older I get
The truer it is
It’s the people you love, not the money and stuff
That makes you rich

And if they found a fountain of youth
I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth
Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet

The older I get
The fewer friends I have
But you don’t need a lot when the ones that you got
Have always got your back
And the older I get
The better I am
At knowing when to give
And when to just not give a damn

And if they found a fountain of youth
I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth
Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet
The older I get

And I don’t mind all the lines
From all the times I’ve laughed and cried
Souvenirs and little signs of the life I’ve lived

The older I get
The longer I pray
I don’t know why, I guess that I
Got more to say
And the older I get
The more thankful I feel
For the life I’ve had, and all the life I’m living still

“The Older I Get” will be featured on Jackson’s next studio album, planned for a 2018 release. Be sure to share the Georgia native’s latest music video with other fans!
