Alan Jackson is an undisputed country legend who has been making music for nearly 35 years, and he says he's not closing up shop quite yet.

In a recent interview with his daughter Mattie Jackson on her podcast In-Joy Life, he shared his desire to continue releasing music into the future.

"Well, yes. I would hope so," Jackson says of recording new music (quotes via People). "I mean, I may not have toured much, but like I said, the creative part jumps out every now and then. I'm always scribbling down ideas and thinking about melodies and I feel like there'll be some more music to come, yes."

Jackson looked as if he was narrowing in on retirement upon announcement of his Last Call: One More for the Road Tour, which ran throughout 2022, but he clarifies that even if touring slows down for him, he'll always be interested in the "challenge" of creating new music.

"It's like, you can be a singer and go out and tour, but it's kind of like you're just doing the same thing over and over," he notes. "When you make an album, or especially when you write a lot of the songs, that's creating something. It's a challenge, so it keeps you interested a little more. If I didn't write, I think I would've gotten bored just singing a long time ago."

The most recent body of work shared by Jackson was his 21-track album Where Have You Gone, released in May 2021. Later that fall, the singer announced that he had been suffering from a degenerative nerve condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease for a number of years, and it was beginning to affect his mobility and balance.

Jackson was forced to postpone the final shows of his Last Call Tour in fall 2022 due to complications from the disease.

The country legend hasn't shared any firm plans for releasing new music, but lately, he's been enjoying time with his first grandchild, Jackson, who was born to his middle daughter Ali and her husband Sam in December. The star says his grandson brings him joy and is "overshadowing" all other events in his life right now.

After selling their spectacular Southern manor home in 2010, Alan Jackson and his wife moved to to what might be an even more impressive mansion, if that's even possible. Their 5-bedroom, 8-bathroom, 22,012-square-foot estate in the same Nashville suburb of Franklin features bedrooms that are all well-appointed suites, while the formal dining and living areas are finished off with splendid arched doorways, oversized windows and elaborate woodwork. The residence also includes a bar, a media room and multiple indoor and outdoor fireplaces. It sold for $19 million in March of 2021.

Alan Jackson's former 18,622-square-foot plantation-style estate sits on 135 acres in Franklin, Tenn., an affluent rural suburb outside of Nashville. The staggering residence includes formal dining and living rooms, a home office with maple floors, a spacious family room with 22 ft. ceilings, a gourmet kitchen with an adjoining breakfast room and a glass-enclosed porch on the first floor. There are four bedroom suites on the second floor, along with an exercise room and nanny quarters. The third floor has a game room, home theater and a custom pub. The property sold for $28 million in 2010, making it one of the largest sales of a private residence in Nashville.
