Alan Jackson is out playing shows on his Last Call: One More For Road tour.
While AJ is out there creating lasting memories for his fans – going into this 4th of July weekend, Alan recalls a very special time he had celebrating America’s birthday in New York.
Jackson says, “Well, this one is hard to beat. I had an old boat in Florida. It’s like an old antique motor yacht, and it was kind of a cool old boat. I’ve always wanted to take it up north like to New York and up in that area, up in the northeast where it’s so pretty. So, we took the boat up there and Denise and the girls, we all went up. They like going to New York City, which I don’t really care about going to the city. So, I got to stay in my boat there at the harbor tied up, which was cool anyway. So, they spent time in the city a few days and then that was Fourth of July, and we went out in the Hudson River that night and they shot the fireworks off and we were anchored out in front of the Statue of Liberty and New York City was behind us, and the Statue of Liberty and the fireworks were going off sitting on that boat. That was the coolest thing and my girls still talk about that. I mean, that was the coolest thing on Fourth of July I can ever remember. I can’t top that one probably. It was emotional sitting there watching the Statue of Liberty and thinking about all that. It was very cool.”
We don’t think the boat that Alan is referring to is the same one from his “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” video…
