Country singer-songwriter Alan Jackson celebrates his 42nd wedding anniversary with his wife Denise Jackson! forty-two years ago the high school sweethearts tied the knot at the Newnan Baptist Church in their hometown of Newnan, Georgia.

After six years of marriage, the Jacksons picked up their belongings and relocated to Nashville, Tennessee. The big move was in support of Alan following his dreams of becoming a country music star. While working as a flight attendant, Denise Jackson ended up introducing Alan to a guy country fans have maybe heard of…Glen Campbell. The country icon ultimately helped Alan land his first major recording contract with Arista Records.

Now, 42 years later, Alan and Denise are happier than ever. The two also share three daughters together: Mattie, Ali, and Dani.
