    Country music superstar Alan Jackson is opening his home and his heart, and his wallet.

    The singer will release a limited number of copies of his book Seasons of Sweetbriar – A Photographic Collection of Home by Alan Jackson. The full purchase price of each book will be donated to the Colon Cancer Alliance's Blue Note Fund, benefitting colon cancer patients in need.

    "Sweetbriar – created by God, bound by the Harpeth River, and guarded by hand laid rock walls from years ago – this 140 acres of fertile valley shadowed by the Tennessee hills has privileged my family and me with a landscape for living" – excerpt from the book's foreword by Alan.

    The Sweetbriar estate is where Alan, his wife Denise and their three daughters, Mattie, Ali and Dani lived for over 13 years. The original intent when Alan began the photo collection was to prepare a photo journal that his daughters would have to look back on when they moved out on their own. Once the book was complete Alan and Denise realized it was a treasure filled with beauty and significance and shared it with family and a few close friends. The book is a hardbound coffee table piece with more than 200 photographs of the landscape, buildings, ponds, trees, wildlife and other intimate reflections of life at Sweetbriar.

    The Jacksons sold Sweetbriar in 2010 and just a few months afterwards Denise was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. "That rocked my world, as I'm sure it does every person who gets a cancer diagnosis," she explains. "That really brought to my attention the CCA and awareness and what the organization does. It became an obvious way for us to be able to do something meaningful with these books and be able to raise money for the Blue Note Fund."

    Seasons of Sweetbriar can be purchased at www.alanjackson.com for $25 or $50 for a book autographed by Alan, while supplies last. 100 percent of proceeds will be donated to the CCA's Blue Note Fund.
