Heartland proudly features The Gaither Gospel Hour, every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. E/P as well as on Sundays at 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. E/P. For this week’s episodes, Gaither presents country music superstar Alan Jackson and Precious Memories: Live at the Ryman. Join us in fellowshp for this first airing on Wednesday, August 9.
In this special, taped live at the “Mother Church of Country Music,” Jackson delivers powerful performances of songs from his album Precious Memories. The concert special not only showcases Jackson’s heartfelt renditions of some of the church’s most popular hymns, but also includes intimate interviews with Jackson, his mother, and his wife as they reflect on his musical roots and Precious Memories, a very personal project for Jackson.
