FANS of country music star Alan Jackson appear to have been comforted after a new picture of the music icon was shared online.
Thousands of supporters have sent their congratulations to the singer-songwriter amid his ongoing battle with the neurological condition Charcot Marie Tooth Disease.
A post on Jackson’s Facebook page revealed that 10 of his signature Stetsons will be auctioned off.
Fans appeared to be comforted when Jackson wore his signature cowboy hat in the photo.
They also took the opportunity to continue their prayers amid the star’s health struggle
One said: “What a great idea!! Good picture.”
And another commented: “Healing prayers for you and God bless. Beautiful picture, please get well so you can keep playing and singing your beautiful music.”
Fans flocked to show their appreciation for the country music star.
One said: “It is and always has been what REAL country is. His music is epic and his voice unforgettable.”
And another gushed that no one wears the hat better than Jackson.
Jackson recently shared a throwback snap of himself performing onstage with George Strait, known as the “King of Country.”
Fans said the artists were their “favorites,” and some hoped the pair could team up to make a new song.
It comes after bizarre rumors swirled around the internet claiming Jackson had died.
The baseless speculation was debunked after a clip of the music star was shared online, captioned: “I’m still living that honky tonk dream y’all”.
Jackson revealed that he was “definitely living” the American dream.
The clip was captured at the 2022 Country Music Association Awards last week, where it received the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award.
He told fans, “Country music was really good for me and I fell in love with it when I was a young man.”
“I really love the instruments, the steel guitars and the fiddles and things like that that have given me such a unique character and made it my own,” he continued.
“And I love the lyrics and the songs and the artists and the melodies and the harmonies. To me, this is just real American music.”
Fans said they prayed for Jackson after he shared a heartwarming family snap on Thanksgiving.
Some claimed they couldn’t recognize the star since he was without his signature cowboy hat.
Last September, the popular music star opened up about his CMT disease diagnosis.
The condition, which he was diagnosed over 10 years ago, affected Jackson’s balance and ability to walk.
He told TODAY at the time: “I have this neuropathy and neurological condition.
“It’s genetic, I inherited it from my father… There’s no cure for it, but it’s been affecting me for years.
“And it’s becoming more and more obvious. And I know I’m stumbling around on stage.
“And now I’ve got a bit of a balance problem, even in front of the mic, and that’s why I’m just really uncomfortable.”
The disease affects around 126,000 people in the United States and 2.6 million people worldwide, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders.
