Alan Jackson and Daughters

After debuting the touching track “You’ll Always Be My Baby (Written for Daughters’ Weddings)” during the 2021 ACM Awards, country superstar Alan Jackson is bringing the song to life with a new video starring his three daughters, Mattie, 30, Ali, 27, and Dani, 23.

Solely penned by the Hall of Fame songwriter, “You’ll Always Be My Baby (Written for Daughters’ Weddings)” was written several years ago for a very special occasion. 

“I wrote the song for Mattie’s wedding the summer of 2017, but it was so hard to do. I told ’em, ‘I wrote this for all of you,’” he explained in a media release. 

The song finds Jackson promising to always be there for his daughters, no matter what. 

“But you’ll always be my baby / No matter where you are / You’ll always be my baby / Forever in my heart,” he sings.

The just-released clip showcases throwback photos of Jackson and his family. Fans can see his girls grow up before their eyes as photos from various life stages flash across the screen. Click below to watch.

The deeply personal track will appear on Jackson’s forthcoming 16th studio album, Where Have You Gone. 

Arriving on Friday, May 14, the project includes 21 tracks and finds the country superstar once again teaming up with his longtime producer, Keith Stegall. 

Where Have You Gone boasts 15 tracks written by Jackson, including the self-penned title track.
