Alan Jackson Helps Superfan Celebrate Her 100th Birthday With Special Gift
That’s right! The ‘Precious Memories’ hitmaker has a superfan named Barbara Bowden, and she recently celebrated her 100th birthday. To help her celebrate, Jackson sent her a thoughtful birthday gift package, including a hat, signed T-shirt, several autographed CDs and a letter of congratulations, according to Bangor Daily News.
Bowden lives at Horizons Living and Rehabilitation Center in Brunswick, Maine, and the office manager said they originally asked Jackson to come out to see the birthday gal. “We tried to get him here for an appearance and to sing ‘Happy Birthday,’” Sedgwick explains, “but he’s touring in Australia.”
It certainly would have been memorable for Bowden to be serenaded by her favorite country crooner, but not many people can say they received a personal birthday gift from the star, who has an impressive 35 Billboard country chart toppers, two Grammys and two American Music Awards.
At 54 years old, Jackson still has a whole lot of livin’ to do to catch up to Bowden!
