Alan Jackson… dancing fool? It’s not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when fans think of the generally somewhat reserved country superstar, but they might change their minds after seeing his dance moves in a new video posted to the networks. social.
That’s right, we said “dance moves”. And not just any dance moves either. Jackson took to social media to mark the release of his new Silverbelly Whiskey, and in a clip shared with fans, he snapped moves that are about as far removed from his usual stage persona as possible.
Dressed casually in a t-shirt, shorts and sneakers, the Country Music Hall of Famer sings Jerry Lee Lewis’ classic “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” and between the lyrics, he spins, plays the air piano maniacally and generally drops the jaws of fans everywhere. He is accompanied by an unidentified young man whose dance moves are even more extreme:
Now, we’re not saying Jackson had too much of his own product, but according to his social team, he said, “I opened the first bottle of Silverbelly; that’s what happened,” before sharing the crazy clip. See his original post below:
Jackson created the whiskey in partnership with Silver Screen Bottling Co. & DSP-KY-10. It is named after Jackson’s cowboy hats, which feature the off-white “silverbelly” color. Silverbelly Whiskey is available in 750ml bottles at 91 degrees and containing 45.5% alcohol by volume.
Silverbelly Whiskey is currently available in stores across Tennessee, and it’s also available for pre-order online. Each batch of spirits will be named after one of his hits, with the first batch taking its name from Jackson’s 1990 hit “Here in the Real World.”
Jackson’s signature whiskey will also serve as the official sponsor for his upcoming Last Call: One More for the Road Tour, which kicks off June 24 in Biloxi, Miss., and ends Oct. 8 in Pittsburgh.
