Jackson releases his single, Small Town Southern Man, from his album, Good Time. Jackson:
I think sometimes you sit down and try to write something and think, ‘Well, this may make a good single,’ and you’re trying to do something for your career. But most of the time, I write what comes out or I have ideas I’ve scribbled down over the past year or two. I had Small Town Southern Man written down, and I’ll just pick that up and start writing it. I don’t know that I sit down and try to designate each song for something special. Just write each one and pick the ones you like. I’ve always tried to mix it up on an album where there’s some up-tempo things and some mid-tempo kind of cool songs – some real love ballads that are pretty. Heavy broken-heart songs and drinking songs and just a little of everything. You know, that’s kind of the way country music’s always been.
