Alan Jackson announces the tour as he continues to struggle with the rare genetic disease called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Diagnosed back in 2011, Alan inherited the disease from his father. “I have this neuropathy and neurological disease,” Alan commented during an interview on the Today show. “It's genetic that I inherited from my daddy. There's no cure for it, but it's been affecting me for years. And it's getting more and more obvious.”

Alan Jackson’s sickness is a group of inherited disorders that cause nerve damage, mainly in the arms and legs. Alan has explained in the past that it is similar to Parkinson’s disease and Muscular Dystrophy.

He is Open About His Health Struggles Now

The artist first announced his diagnosis back in 2021.”I know I’m stumbling around stage now,” Alan said. “I’m having a little trouble balancing, even in front of the microphone. I just feel very uncomfortable.”

He feels that being open about his health struggles will explain why he doesn’t always walk correctly. Or why he is having trouble on stage.
