Nashville, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Arista Records) - Alan Jackson's GOOD TIME will debut at No 1 on the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Top Country Albums charts next week, with first-week SoundScan sales of 119,151, marking his fourth album to hit the top spots simultaneously on week of release. You'd think that Jackson was a closet numerologist since GOOD TIME is his 17th album and contains 17 songs, all written by Jackson (a first) over the course of 71 satisfying minutes.See Also:
The first single from the album, 'Small Town Southern Man,' is Jackson 's 51st single, and has been steadily climbing the charts - it's No 2 this week.
GOOD TIME reunites Jackson with longtime producer Keith Stegall and marks his return to traditional country after his critically acclaimed PRECIOUS MEMORIES and LIKE RED ON A ROSE albums. Songs include the sweetly poignant 'Sissy's Song,' inspired by a longtime Jackson family friend and employee who passed away, the nostalgic '1976,' the joys of being a 'Country Boy' and a rollicking duet with Martina McBride, 'Never Loved Before.'
