Alan Jackson - Alan Jackson Releasing Photobook For Charity
Country star Alan Jackson is releasing a limited edition photobook featuring his beloved Sweetbriar estate in Tennessee to raise money for charity.
The singer and his family lived in the Williamson County home for more than 13 years and Jackson originally started the personal photo collection as a visual journal for his daughters.
The coffee table book, entitled Seasons of Sweetbriar - A Photographic Collection of Home, features 200 images of the estate's grounds, buildings and ponds.
Shortly after selling the estate in 2010, Jackson's wife Denise was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and he has chosen to donate the proceeds from the book to the Colon Cancer Alliance's Blue Note Fund in recognition of the organisation's support.
Denise Jackson tells Country Weekly, "That rocked my world, as I'm sure it does every person who gets a cancer diagnosis. That really brought to my attention the Cca and awareness and what the organization does. It became an obvious way for us to be able to do something meaningful with these books and be able to raise money for the Blue Note Fund."
