    Congrats to country superstar Alan Jackson!

    The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation (NaSHOF) announced that Jackson will be a 2011 Songwriter/Artist inductee into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Induction into the prestigious songwriting community will be held at the 41st Anniversary Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Dinner and Induction Ceremony to be held on Sunday, Oct. 16 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.

    Jackson has written/co-written 24 of his 35 #1 hit singles. This places him second only to Merle Haggard in country music history as artists who have written or co-written #1 songs they have also recorded. Jackson is in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who've written more than 20 songs that they've recorded and taken to the top of the charts. When you place it in that context and realize the company that Jackson is in, it's awe-inspiring, isn't it? The man is a class-A songwriter and he deserves his recognition and place in this particular hall!

    Make no mistake: Alan Jackson knows how to write a hit! Congrats again, Alan!
