All was silent at the Grand Ole Opry during a moving performance by Alan Jackson of his classic country song, “Remember When.” The lights glimmered off the white cowboy hat Jackson rarely ever goes without as he began to sing.
As country music continues to morph into a sound for the newer generation, performances like this remind us that the true root of country music will always hold strong.
“Remember When” is a song about lasting love and looking back on all of the memories it was built on. Jackson sings the song during his Opry performance with passion and each word is heartfelt. See the memorable performance below.
In the middle of the performance, he takes a moment to step away from the mic while the band continues on. He raises his hand up to his face to get a better view of the crowd and take in the moment before beginning again.
The music that accompanies him is soft throughout, bring a hard focus on the lyrics that every person in the crowd that night could surely relate to. Out of all the incredible performances at the Grand Ole Opry that night, this was one that those in attendance won’t soon forget.
