The month of December is especially important to country music icon Alan Jackson and his wife Denise. The high school sweethearts got engaged on Christmas Eve back in 1978 and exchanged vows on December 15, 1979 at Newnan Baptist Church in their hometown of Newnan, Georgia.
“These youngsters were newly engaged on Christmas Eve 1978. Today we’re celebrating 39 years together…. still livin’ on love!,” Alan shared along with a throwback picture of the couple.
The longtime couple have three adult daughters together: Mattie Jackson Selecman, Alexandra Jackson, and Dani Jackson. These two have certainly had their ups and downs, even temporarily separating in 1998 due to Alan’s infidelity and the pressures of his country music career. Alan and Denise have also weathered a recent family tragedy with the passing of their 28-year-old son-in-law Samuel “Ben” Selecman in September.
We hope the best for the Jackson family as they spend the holiday season with loved ones.
The Georgia native will hit the road in January and has selected William Michael Morgan and Randy Houser to join him on certain dates.
