Alan Jackson, “A Woman’s Love”

I’m a big fan of Like Red On a Rose, the current Alison Krauss-produced Jackson set, because it puts a very familiar voice in an entirely new surrounding. The change is most evident when listening to “A Woman’s Love”, which was a mid-tempo fiddle-laced number in its original incarnation on High Mileage, Jackson’s 1998 album. What was pretty standard album filler the first time around now sounds deep and meaningful, with even Jackson sounding far more committed to his own song now than he did eight years ago.

Grade: B+

Listen Now: A Woman’s Love


  1. The most radio-friendly song on the CD, no doubt. I hope, that Alan, now that he has put out a pair of experiments, goes back to what built him his popularity.

    In his day Porter Wagoner was one heck of a producer – maybe he could be persuaded to produce Alan’s next project

  2. I think one of the things I don’t like about this song or album altogether is that he sounds bored to me. He doesn’t seem to be singing with his full voice; a voice I love so much. I guess everyone categorizes it as moody, but I think it sounds like he’s bored.
