20 years later, Alan Jackson reflects on “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)”

Alan Jackson’s “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” is one of the most moving songs about 9/11.

Saturday is the 20th anniversary of that tragic day, so he was asked why the song still resonates with fans.

“A lot of my fans, younger fans weren’t hardly even around when 9/11 happened but they have connected with that song,” Alan said. “And it’s one of the highlights of the show now and it’s just amazing that it has outlived where it really began. So, it can’t help but make me feel very proud that something like that has helped people through that hard time in the beginning and it still has a lasting affect outside of where it all started.”
