On Friday afternoon (Aug. 5), a message “from Alan’s team” was shared with fans via his Instagram stories. The message served as a warning to fans that imposter social media accounts have been surfacing throughout the internet.
The country music icon’s team made it known that all of Jackson’s social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok) are all verified and if you see a page that is not, it is not him.
“Alan Jackson’s pages are all assigned a blue checkmark by his name which means the profile has been verified,” Jackson’s team wrote, before reiterating, “If there is no blue checkmark, it is not Alan!”
It seems the music industry has recently been faced with a problem of fake social media accounts pretending to be artists. The imposter profiles are asking artist’s fans for money and even scamming some fans into buying gifts and other products.
Alan Jackson Is Currently Touring On The Last Call: One More For The Road Tour & Announced His Silverbelly Whiskey
Jackson recently announced his new Silverbelly Whiskey, which gets its namesake from the country icon’s signature cowboy hat (while many believe the hat is white, it’s actually a color called Silverbelly) and is a new premium spirit distilled exclusively for – and hand-selected by – Jackson himself.
Additionally, Jackson is currently in the midst of his Last Call: One More For The Road Tour. The trek, which is presented by Silverbelly Whiskey, kicked off on Friday, June 24 at Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.
The tour marks Jackson’s first outing since revealing he was diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disorder last fall.
“I’ve always admired my heroes like George Jones, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn and Charley Pride who just played as much as they wanted to, as long as they could,” Jackson previously shared. “I’ve always thought I’d like to do that, and I’d like to as long as my health will allow,” he notes, adding with a smile, “I’ll try to do as much as I can, but if I’m comin’ your way, come see me…”
The Last Call: One More for the Road Tour will visit 30 cities across the United States before wrapping up on October 8 in Pittsburgh, PA at PPG Paints Arena. The tour includes stops in several cities that the three-time CMA Entertainer of the Year hasn’t visited in years.
The country icon will donate $1 for every ticket sold to the CMT Research Foundation. In addition, $1 will be matched by a generous group of CMTRF donors and board members.
