Alan Jackson has shared the first release from his forthcoming album due out in 2018. The new single, "The Older I Get," reflects on how the country legend is feeling at this time in his life. It was written by Adam Wright, Hailey Whitters and Sarah Allison Turner.

“It’s a good song; I really liked it, but the message was a little different when I first heard it. I thought maybe it could be a little more positive about being older and wiser and more content, so they rewrote a few things, and this is how it ended up,” shared Jackson.

Listen below!

“The older I get / The more I think / You only get a minute / Better live while you’re in it / ‘Cause it’s gone in a blink."

The 59-year-old is the most recent artist to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Alan Jackson will perform at the 51st Annual CMA Awards November 8.
