Father of country music singer Alan Jackson.
----------
Commercial Appeal, The (Memphis, TN) — Thursday, February 3, 2000
NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - Joseph Eugene Jackson, father of country music star Alan Jackson, died Monday of a ruptured aorta. He was 72.

Jackson was a mechanic at the Ford Motor Co. assembly plant in Hapeville from 1964 to 1989. He and his wife still lived in the same house they moved into when they married 53 years ago - originally a 12- by 12-foot storage shed built by his father. Diane Dawson, the singer's sister, said Alan Jackson used his parents' life together as the basis of his song Livin' on Love, which celebrates the virtue of buying on time and growing old together.
