When it comes to a real, great country music, Alan Jackson is one of the top lists. He gives us songs that can truly touch our hearts and souls. He can make our eyes water, just like his single “Remember When.” Also, he can make us groove through his massive hit “Livin’ On Love.” “I’ll Go on Loving You” carried us away with passionate and oozing love. Most of all, he provides us songs that can sweep us off our feet, like “Where I Come From.” A feel-good taste of country music that gives a glimpse of Southern lifestyle.

Where I Come From…

Alan Jackson, himself, wrote the words and lyrics of “Where I Come From.” He released the song on July 9, 2001. Also, the song was part of his number one album “When Somebody Loves You.” The song became Alan Jackson’s eighteenth number one single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Moreover, on October 13, 2001, it reached at number one spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The song at number one spot played like a roller coaster. It placed at number one, then it was bested by Brooks and Dunn’s “Only in America.” Then, it returned at number one spot again after a week. It’s only proof that Alan Jackson’s capability to surpass other singles from other country artists is undeniably prevailing.
