Alan Jackson

Oct. 28
7:30 p.m.

We’re used to seeing “yahoos” at Target Center — talkin’ those historically terrible Timberwolves — but get ready for some “yeehaws.” That’s because country star Alan Jackson is on his way to the Minneapolis arena, and you can bet your finest sassy mudflaps he’s gonna keep things country when he arrives. After all, the mustachioed Georgian promised as much when he named his current tour the Keepin’ It Country Tour. And Alan Jackson couldn’t lie to us... could he? No, he couldn’t — it would destroy us. To what extent is Jackson willing to keep it country? Earlier this month, the 57-year-old honky-tonk hitmaker walked out of the CMA Awards during the Beyoncé-Dixie Chicks collab, one he presumably and uncooly deemed not country enough. Jackson’s 12th and latest album, Angels and Alcohol, dropped last year, and he was quick to show it off at the Minnesota State Fair grandstand. [Reschuduled from November 19.
