Product Description

Product Description

Good Time reunites superstar Alan Jackson with longtime producer, Keith Stegall and it marks the first time Jackson has been the sole writer on an entire album. As a songwriter, he has written 21 of his 31 #1 singles. The Jackson-penned 'Small Town Southern Man' is the disc's first single and after only five weeks on the charts, it's fast become a country radio smash and the youngest record inside the Billboard country airplay Top 30. After releasing not one, but two chart-topping albums in 2006, Good Time returns the spotlight to Jackson as a songwriter, as well as a vocalist. Additional songs include the sweetly poignant 'Sissy's Song', inspired by a friend who passed away, the nostalgic '1976' and the joys of being a 'Country Boy'.

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't think I liked country music, until... Aug. 17 2009
By R3aLiTY_bYt3s TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was scanning through radio channels in traffic one day when I came upon the title song of this CD. I didn't think I liked country music (except for a couple of George Strait songs) until I heard "Good Time".

I liked it so much, I bought the CD. And I like the whole CD. I think it's brilliant and would recommend it to anyone who simply likes music.

Now I keep the CD on hand for long road trips :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL GOOD TIME! March 4 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Alan Jackson is one of those Country stars that always shoots straight. No he hasn't been nominated a lot of late for this award or that. But his work is always there and, for true Country fans, his songs are a must and a reminder of just what Country Music is and how it should sound.

GOOD TIME makes the case completely. The album is Jackson at his purest and best. No real experimentation here. No seeming attempts at addressing the ever-shifting expectations of those new to the genre. This is Alan Jackson doing what he does best and, as the title exclaims, listening to this one is a real Good Time!

Every track (and there are seventeen of them!) is a hit in my book. The sixth track on the album, 1976, a look back at a simpler life, came through as my favorite. The song spoke very well to me about a great many things and I found myself reminiscing along with Alan about an important year in my life.

But, hey, as I said, every song here, from the title track to Country Boy to Small Town Southern Man, is Jackson at his finest. He holds nothing back and, as you listen, you'll find yourself realizing, as I did, that Alan Jackson is a no-nonsense Country treasure whom I hope continues to wow us all with his talent and perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Alan Jackson March 7 2008
By Dmitri Ulinov - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Good Time" is classic Alan Jackson with the added bonus that this disc contains 17 cuts, instead of the typical 10 or 12 songs. More Alan for the money is always a good thing!

As you may or may not know, Alan's last two CDs were a bit different than his previous catalog. "Like Red on a Rose" (four stars) played with a bluesy-jazz sound, while "Precious Memories" (six stars if I could) was a beautiful and inspirational country gospel recording. Both these themes (bluesy-jazz and country gospel) have always been around in Jackson's recordings, but those two CDs highlighted those elements in specific.

In "Good Time," Alan returns to what made him a well-deserved superstar more than a decade ago. There are several songs celebrating simple living, with "Small Town Southern Man" being a mega-hit in the vein of "Home" or "Drive (for Daddy Gene)." "I Still Like Bologna" represents the fun-side of Jackson (a la "Talkin' Song Repair Blues") and there is a nod to his spiritual side in "If Jesus Walked the World Today." The duet with Martina McBride ("Never Loved Before") is also a standout and should be a #1 single soon. The amazing thing is that all of these are original Alan Jackson-written songs!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Alan Jackson Is Back May 13 2008
By Sam Sattler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I know more than a few Alan Jackson fans who were concerned that Alan's previous album marked a permanent change of direction for him. That album, produced by Alison Krauss, will likely prove to be the worst selling album in the Alan Jackson catalog so it is good to see that Good Time is a return to form for him. His fans can stop worrying now.

"Good Time" is jam-packed with solid country music and, as usual for an Alan Jackson album, the songs will appeal to a wide audience. There are love ballads for the ladies, a drinking song or two for the guys, some autobiographical songs, and lots of Alan Jackson humor on display.

Alan shares some of his own story on "Small Town Southern Man," the first single from the album, a song in which he pays tribute to his father, and on "1976" in which he describes some of the notable highlights of 1976, the year he met his wife at the local Dairy Queen. One suspects that the lady has a sense of humor after listening to "Nothing Left to Do," Alan's description of "one night in the life" in which he tells us that there's "nothing left to do now that we've done it."

Other examples of Jackson's humorous touch are "I Still Like Bologna," in which he admits to enjoying plenty about the digital age but says that he's not ready yet to give up all of life's simple pleasures and "If Jesus Walked the World Today," in which he imagines that when Jesus comes back it will be as a hillbilly.

"If You Want to Make Me Happy," a traditional honky tonk song, kicks off with a fiddle and closes with a steel guitar. What more can a country fan ask for? How about a hook that advises, "If you want to make me happy, pour me bourbon on the rocks and play every sad song on the jukebox." Does it get any better than that, country fans?

"Good Time" includes a love song duet with the talented Martina McBride, "Never Loved Before," that may be destined to be a single at some point. It is just one of at least half a dozen love songs on the album, some of which are mid-to-up-tempo songs that even the guys will enjoy.

Alan Jackson fans will love this album...and, with seventeen songs on it, Alan is offering us a real bargain. Buy this album. You won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keepin' It Country!!!!! March 4 2008
By K. Carlucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Thank God there are still artists like Alan Jackson around to keep country music alive. In this album he includes a little bit of everything from fast paced songs, a little blue grass, and most important of all it's all good classic country! His band and himself have never sounded better. This whole album is one big Good Time and you can tell from his excitement in the lyrics that he had a blast making it and I think that you will have a blast listening to it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars He never fails to deliver!! Time and Time again! March 5 2008
By  RIZZO  - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As long as I have known about Alan Jackson, I can see him to be like the man he praises, his father Daddy Gene, a family man, traditional, pure and caring.

For his 15th CD, which follows and an impressive awards collection, we can't disregard his longtime producer Keith Stegall, the man behind the scenes. Their collaborative success is attributed to Stegall's claim of their similar background, a small town. The name Stegall is synomous with Alan Jackson.

Alan Jackson is a writer of his music, which means the words speak of the man. You get Alan Jackson, down to earth, genuine, simple, wholesome and with faith. The music here is about the people, his father; Sissy's Song was written for a young lady who worked for Jacksons and died. It wouldn't surprise me if this became a staple song for loved ones. It's not too often that he duets with other female singers, but here he does a song with Martina McBride.

If there is one singer's birthplace I have always known, it is Alan Jackson, born in Newnan, Georgia, and in his wonderful gospel album Precious Memories-Live at the Ryman DVD, he took us back to Newnan. And with the success of that, it is fitting to include a spiritual song that connects with his home, If Jesus Walked the World Today.

You will hear different musical sounds, feel good songs, but what will forever be is that voice!! .....Rizzo
