Country class act Alan Jackson heads 'thirty miles west' to Gary Amphitheatre in Tampa

November 29, 2012 

One of Nashville's most dependable hit makers and classiest acts for two decades-plus, Alan Jackson rarely goes wrong in studio or on stage.

The singer-songwriter released his 15th collection of new songs, "Thirty Miles West," in June and it shot to No. 1 on Billboard's Country Albums chart and No. 2 overall. The album includes the singles "So You Don't Have to Love Me Anymore" and "You Go Your Way."

In concert, Jackson will likely be performing hits ranging from 1991's "Someday" to "Country Boy," which reached No. 1 a few years back.

And it's a safe bet the honky tonk hero from Georgia will lead the audience in a massive sing along of his anthem "Chattahoochee," which ruled the country airwaves in '93.

Rodney Atkins, David Nail and Jana Kramer are also scheduled to perform.

Details: 3 p.m. Dec. 2, Ask Gary Amphitheatre, 4802 N. U.S. 301, Tampa. Tickets: $24.95-$80.35. Information: 813-287-8844 or www.ticketmaster.com.
