Alan Jackson brought the good old days right back to the ACM Awards on Sunday night. The country hitmaker belted out one of his top hits “Drive” and then followed up with a performance of his new song, “My Baby,” during the country music award show. During his performance of “My Baby,” he shared numerous family photos of his wife and daughters, making the performance ultra-special and intimate. He originally wrote the song for his daughters’ weddings. https://twitter.com/ACMawards/status/1383962127258378247 PHOTOS: 2021 ACM Awards Red Carpet Fashion: Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and More!

Benjamin was married to Jackson’s daughter, Mattie, and he died in a tragic fall in late 2018.Alan, a 7-time ACM Award winner definitely made a triumphant return to the stage on Sunday.
