Alan Jackson revealed some interesting facts about being a performer on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood yesterday (July 12). The veteran entertainer tells the show’s Lee Cowan that he believes he would be just as happy behind the scenes as a writer as he is taking center stage, and chats about his discomfort with the attention even all these years into his hitmaking career.

“You know, I’m still self-conscious about going on stage, and things,” Jacksons says. “I love singing and I love sharing my songs with people, especially if it’s something that I wrote, but I still, I feel a little uncomfortable in front of people, you know?”

Jackson is promoting the release of his latest UMG Nashville CD, Angels and Alcohol, with a bevy of media appearances this month.
