6. He has an acting background.

OK, this one might be a stretch, but according IMDB, Alan Jackson has one acting credit -- aside from a few dozen appearances as himself. He played a "country singer" in a 1992 episode of 'Matlock.' It's a believable role, right? Aside from that, he landed a role in his high school's production of 'Oklahoma.' So far, zero acting awards to his name.
