Is country music star Alan Jackson dead?
The answer to the above question is a big no. The It Must Be Love, and Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning) singer is very much alive at the moment. The death rumors of the singer went viral after a website named fnews2.com claimed that the singer is dead.
Soon after, all the fans of the musician got concerned for various reasons. The main page of the website shows a framed picture of the singer Alan Jackson with “RIP” written next to it, and the title reads, “6 minutes ago/ with a heavy heart as we report the sad news of 64-year-old Singer Alan Jackson.”
Although, there is no official statement present on the website that proves that the I’d Love You All Over Again singer is dead. Along with this, there is also a separate post that has been placed right below which claims that the Die Hard star Bruce Willis has passed away. Bruce is still alive.
