Alan Jackson’s Wife Helped His Career Take Off After Randomly Meeting Glen Campbell

There’s A Lot More To Their Decades-Long Love Story Than Meets The Eye

Long before Alan Jackson became the country star he is today, with ardent fans worldwide, he already earned one big fan. And that fan was no other than his wife, Denise Jackson – who played a major role in helping Alan achieve his dreams of country music stardom.

Alan and Denise met in Newnan, Georgia, when they were still teenagers and quickly became high school sweethearts. The two got hitched on December 15, 1989, just after Denise graduated from high school. Alan was only 21 then.

Just like most young couples, Alan and Denise had to make ends meet. While the once unknown Alan was trying his luck to become a singer, he needed some way to pay the bills – so he got a job in The Nashville Network’s mailroom instead.

Meanwhile, Denise worked as a flight attendant, where little they both knew would change their lives forever.
