screencap 2010-04-07 at 2.34.14 PM

SIRIUS XM Radio will launch Alan Jackson’s Freight Train Radio, a seven-day long, commercial-free music channel celebrating the music and career of one of country music’s biggest stars.

The channel will launch on Friday, April 9 at 12:00 pm ET and will run until Thursday, April 15 at 11:59 pm ET on SIRIUS channel 61 and XM channel 17.

Alan Jackson’s Freight Train Radio will feature the award-winning country superstar talking about and playing music from his 18-album career, including from his first album, Here in the Real World, to his most recent release, the critically-acclaimed, Freight Train. Freight Train features “It’s Just That Way,” the first single, “Hard Hat and A Hammer”, an ode to the working man, and the moving tribute to Vern Gosdin, “Till The End,” which Jackson recorded with Lee Ann Womack. Jackson will personally introduce each song and share stories and personal anecdotes about writing, recording and performing some of the most popular country hits of all time.

In addition to hearing non-stop Alan Jackson music, listeners will hear Jackson introducing and playing songs by his favorite artists, both traditional and contemporary, including George Strait, Randy Travis, Lee Ann Womack, Hank Williams Sr., Hank Williams Jr. and George Jones.

Listeners will also hear Jackson offer an inside look into his personal life as he talks about family life — how it’s changed over the years with his success — personal stories about his father and what it means being a father.
