NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) – Country superstar Alan Jackson announced in an interview Tuesday that he has degenerative nerve disease that affects his balance, but he intends to keep playing. Jackson, 62, said in an interview broadcast on NBC’s “Today” show that he was diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease a decade ago. He said it was a genetic disorder and its effects on his ability to walk have become increasingly apparent. The condition does not change his life expectancy, he said. “I know I stumble around on stage,” he said to Jenna Bush Hager. “And now I have a bit of trouble balancing in front of the microphone myself. And that’s why I just feel very uncomfortable.”
The singer-songwriter from Newnan, Georgia released a new album “Where Have You Gone” this year and remains one of the top country music artists with more than 43 million albums sold in the US, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
