It was on this date in 2010 that Zac Brown and Alan Jackson released thier duet, As She's Walking Away, and it was on this date in 2003 that Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet's It's Five O'Clock Somewhere started its five week run at the top of the charts.

I'd say that's a pretty a pretty good run of luck for Alan!
