Alan Jackson and Jim McBride co-wrote “Someday”. Made public in August of 1991, the single was for Jackson’s second studio album ‘Don’t Rock the Jukebox’. The album title came from a line in the song. Once released, it hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Track chart. Alan Jackson’s musical ability proved that this was not an accident.
The story behind “Someday” is about two people who love each other but have differences. The man has a vision but the woman cannot wait for him. In the end, the man gets his act together and picks her up with a beautiful classy car. In the official music video, the man (portrayed by Jackson) and the lady were talking naturally, yet the discussion is organized in such a way that it blends with the song.
Apart from that hit, ‘Don’t Rock the Jukebox’ included three other number one singles. These are “Dallas“, “Love’s Got a Hold on You“, and “Midnight in Montgomery“. Jackson did not limit his success here. He also co-wrote several songs on Randy Travis’ 1991 album, ‘High Lonesome’.
Jackson has sold over 80 million records worldwide. Sixty-six titles made it to the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. Of the 66 titles and six featured singles, 38 have attained the top five. Thirty-five have reigned the number one spot. Out of 15 titles to reach the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, nine have been certified multi-platinum. He is the recipient of two Grammy Awards, 16 CMA Awards, 17 ACM Awards and nominee of multiple other awards. He is a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In 2001, he became a part of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Early this 2017, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Among writer Jackson’s most well-known qualities, he is ready to make verses that fit ordinary language into verse together. That is how you rock the jukebox. Enjoy the live performance video below!
