  • Alan Jackson is scheduled to play at the Arkansas Music Pavilion Sept. 14.

Don't rock the jukebox ya'll, play a country song, because the Walton Arts Center just announced that Alan Jackson will play at the Arkansas Music Pavilion in Fayetteville on Sept. 14. That's a Friday, so you know it's gonna be a boot-scootin' big time up there.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 9 a.m. and they're $35-$102.

The news elicited some excitement on the WAC Facebook page, but also prompted a request for some more rock from one Dawn Williams, who wrote "Awesome... but can we PLEASE get some rock 'n roll artists booked as well! We're not all country here in NW Arkansas!! Great White, Winger, Tesla, Enuff 'Znuff, Night Ranger, Cinderella, Foreigner, John Corabi, Kix, Poison, Def Leppard, Scorpions... they are all touring. Just say'n..."

A lineup with Night Ranger, Scorpions and Def Leppard would be incredible if improbable, but hey, it never hurts to ask. Until that magical day, the AMP will tide over rock fans with Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on Aug. 19 and The Avett Brothers on Oct. 16.

The AMP's country offerings continue Aug. 17, with the Taste of Country Festival, featuring Miranda Lambert, The Pistol Annies, Randy Houser, Chris Knight, Adam Hood and Amanda Cramer
