In 2022, social media feeds were inundated with rumors about the demise of Alan Jackson, following the postponement of some of his concerts in October of that year due to "health issues". These rumors seemed to gain traction after a website called FNEWS2 (which is no longer in operation) dropped an article with a headline that sent shockwaves: “With a Heavy Heart, We Report the Sad News of 64-Year-Old Singer Alan Jackson.” Accompanied by a poignant image featuring Alan Jackson alongside a cross, roses, and candles, the article fueled speculation. However, this article has since been taken down and it's crucial to set the record straight—these rumors are utterly unfounded. The site had previously circulated death hoaxes about celebrities like Bruce Willis, Denzel Washington, and Dolly Parton.
The truth is that Alan Jackson is still alive in 2023 and currently grappling with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, an incurable condition passed down from his father, as disclosed by him on NBC's "Today" show back in September 2021. This revelation shed light on his occasional stumbling on stage and difficulty with balance, but he made it clear he had no intentions of letting this health challenge dictate his retirement plans. While the disease might cause discomfort and affect his mobility, it's not a death sentence.
“I have this neuropathy and neurological disease, it’s genetic that I inherited from my daddy … There’s no cure for it, but it’s been affecting me for years, and it’s getting more and more obvious. I know I’m stumbling around on stage. And now I’m having a little trouble balancing, even in front of the microphone, and so I just feel very uncomfortable,” said Jackson on the NBC morning show.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Charcot-Marie is a hereditary neurological illness that destroys the nerves. The condition, which is typically not lethal, first affects the legs and feet. The country music legend confirmed that his life was, and still is, not in any danger from the disease. 
“It’s not going to kill me. It’s not deadly,” Jackson clarified. “But it’s related [to] muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease.”
Outside of a single Facebook reel from 2022's Country Music Association Awards, which Alan captioned, "Still living that honky tonk dream ya'll," the country star has seemingly ignored the fake news.
Now in 2023, Alan Jackson is still kicking it at 65 and active on social media. You can follow his official page on Facebook to stay up-to-date with the latest news regarding his concerts, albums, and personal life. Recently, on November 8th, he announced on Facebook a giveaway for a signed Honky Tonk Christmas vinyl and a Victrola Record Player.  So, if you're feeling lucky this holiday season, enter now before it's over!
So, in conclusion, for all the fans who heard the unsettling death rumors about Alan Jackson, fear not. The iconic country music legend is very much alive at 65, despite recent health challenges. The Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease might be a hurdle, but it's not a reason to pen a eulogy.  Alan Jackson is here to stay, a living legend of the music industry.
