Next Tuesday, Alan Jackson releases 34 Number Ones, a career-spanning, double-disc collection featuring all of Jackson’s No.1 hits to date, including the recent chart-topping smash, “As She’s Walking Away,” with Zac Brown Band featuring Alan Jackson. 34 Number Ones also contains Jackson’s next single, “Ring of Fire,” a fresh take on a Johnny Cash classic. Written by June Carter (wife of Johnny Cash) and Merle Kilgore, “Ring of Fire” was the biggest hit of Cash’s career, staying at number one on the charts for seven weeks in 1963. “Ring of Fire” ranked #4 on CMT’s 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music in 2003 and #87 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
A 16-time award winner at both the CMA and ACM Awards, Jackson is also a GRAMMY-honored songwriter, with career sales of more than 50 million albums.
