Alan Jackson was presented with the CMA's Lifetime Achievement Award.
The 56th Annual CMA Awards ceremony was held on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award honors artists who have made significant contributions to country music.
"Native music is in my blood and I fell in love with him at an early age," said Jackson.
Jackson said that "My love of instruments, steel guitars and fiddles gave me a unique character and made it my own."
Also I love lyrics and songs and artists and melodies and compositions. To me this is real American music.
Jackson starred in the hit movie "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere".
Jackson has won CMA Entertainer of the Year three times.
