Curt Chambers Pays Homage to Alan Jackson with Cover
Grammy winning, singer-songwriter Curt Chambers pays homage to one of his favorite country music superstars with a hard-hitting rendition of "Don't Rock the Jukebox." The Philadelphia native infused his love of rock and blues into the remake of the classic 90's country anthem and deliberately dropping the single two days before Alan Jackson's Birthday. Jackson celebrated three decades of music and his first record deal this year. The tribute to Jackson is also intended to celebrate the impact he has made on artists and musicians in the country music world.
"What a better way to celebrate one of my favorite country artist's birthday then to pay tribute with my twist on Alan Jackson's "Don't Rock the Jukebox." This was one of my favorite songs growing up. I listened to it when I was a teenager driving driving around in my mother's car in the inner city of Philadelphia. Country music has always been a part of my music lineage and I really wanted to wish Alan Jackson a Happy Birthday by releasing this song. "I wanted my fans to feel like a super hero after hearing this song, I want them to catch that 'let's go get it' spark and ignite the feeling of wanting to pursue true love, whatever that may be for them."Chambers also nods to Bobby Bones in his remake with the line, " Don't Rock The Jukebox, my baby left me for Bobby Bones". He says he had Bobby Bones on his mind when he was recording the song, and he sang those words in a state of mental exhaustion. It was a mistake but the room went crazy when I said it, so we left it "Bobby Bones. I don't know Bobby Bones but he seems like a nice guy, I hope he appreciates how he ended up in the recording. You never know I would love to be on his show and play it for his audience." The music video was filmed at Nossi College of Arts.
