Appeared in April 1999

The Hero of Plate Collectors Everywhere

 

Oh...an authentic replica, instead
of one of those replica copies. 

 

Okay, so he takes a 1949 K.C. Douglas blues song and re-records it as a country song, and it gets really popular.

 Then he changes "Crazy 'bout a Mercury" to "Crazy 'bout a Ford Truck," and sings it in a million Ford commercials.

Now I see his new album contains a song, "Ford Country," which he's singing in Ford commercials. The following ACTUAL quote can be found on the official Alan Jackson site:

"He epitomizes what Ford trucks are all about - genuine, hardworking and fun."

 

So why the hell is he a "hero?"
