Is it premature to see Hall of Fame material in a guy who’s just releasing his first album? Not if that guy is Tony Jackson. To put it plainly, Jackson is one of the most gifted singers ever to grace country music. The respect Jackson has already earned within the music community is evident throughout Tony Jackson, as the new album is titled. It is the ease with which Jackson makes every song—even the familiar ones— distinctly his own that sets him apart. Who else would dare to try and then succeed in bringing a fresh layer of emotional urgency to such a classic as George Jones’ “The Grand Tour” or Conway Twitty’s eternal “It’s Only Make Believe”?
