Country Weekly - “A Little Bluer Than That”


Another of Alan Jackson’s faves is his version of singer/songwriter Irene Kelley’s gorgeously melancholy “A Little Bluer Than That.” “I love that thing,” exclaims Alan. “I was driving home from the airport one Saturday night and turned on the Grand Ole Opry, and she was on. I’d never heard of her before, but she sang that song and I said, ‘Dang, that’s good.’ I made a little note of it.” Alan remembered the song when it was time to record Drive, and even invited Irene to sing harmony with him on the track. ~ Country Weekly
