Alan Jackson will release his new album Thirty Miles West on June 5. The collection is his first with ACR (Alan’s Country Records) and EMI Records.

The album, recorded with long-time producer Keith Stegall, is climbing the charts with its first single, “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore,” which currently sits at No. 15 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Cart.

“I grew up on Highway 34 outside of Newnan, Georgia, and that’s where we came up with Thirty Miles West,” said Jackson. “I think we were about thirty miles west of the official part of the Dixie Highway that runs through Georgia.”

Jackson has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide. He has written or co-written 25 of his 35 No. 1 singles, putting him in the elite company of songwriters Paul McCartney and John Lennon who’ve written and recorded more than 20 chart-topping songs.
