Patriotic tears as Alan Jackson sings “America the Beautiful

Alan Jackson is one of country music’s biggest stars. He lends his incredible voice to the timeless classic “America the Beautiful” in a wonderful patriotic salute to our country.

The song begins softly with a guitar and piano accompaniment. Alan wears his signature cowboy hat and red collared shirt, jeans and boots. The lines at the beginning of the first stanza are reverently delivered.

The performance includes one violin, three guitarists and two pianists. The stage is lit with flashing red and blue lights with American flags hanging in the background. Alan sits on a stool and sings with gusto.

While singing the lyrics “Thine albaster cities gleam”, images of a city and then a countryside with a lake appear. She continues to show images of the sky, rivers, waterfalls and all kinds of nature.

When Alan sings the last words of the song, “And crown your good with the brotherhood of a sea to a shining sea”, he puts his hand over his heart and closes his eyes.

“America the Beautiful” was written by Katharine Lee Bates and was originally a poem titled “Pikes Peak”.

It was published on July 4, 1895 in an ecclesiastical periodical. Samuel A. Ward composed the music for the poem, and the first performance of the complete song appeared in 1910. Bates and Ward never met.

Alan Jackson is known for his hits, including “Chattahoochie” and “Remember When,” but his emotional rendition of the song that honors America is one of the best of all time.

Alan’s voice has never sounded so perfect in a song and the band comes together to deliver a memorable version.
