Alan Jackson Inducted Into Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Following in the footsteps of Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and more

Alan Jackson's latest career achievement has him following in the footsteps of Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and more. 

He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last week in New York City. 

Jackson called it an honor to be in the same league with past songwriter honorees. 

He said, "Most people I know are just working, trying to make a living, raise children, have a good time and enjoy life. Sometimes their lives are already hard and they just want something that makes 'em feel good or helps them get through a hard time. 

Music is a relief from some of that sometimes."
