In the video, shared to his Facebook page, the singer tells fans: “All the wonderful fans I’ve had all over the world. Appreciate y’all.
“Radio and all the parts of country music that have been so good to me all these years. I’ve definitely lived the American dream.
“And I’m still living that honky tonk dream, y’all.”
The clip was taken at the 2022 Country Music Association Awards last week, where he received the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award.
Jackson, who has been responsible for country music hits including “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” told fans: “Country music has been real good to 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 gave it such a unique character to me and made it its own,” he continued.
“And I love the lyrics and the songs and the artists and the melodies and the harmonies. It’s just a real American music to me.”
Jackson last week shared a photo from one of his music videos in the midst of the viral death hoax.

Jackson revealed his Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease diagnosis in September 2021.
The degenerative nerve condition, which he was diagnosed with over ten years ago, affects Jackson’s balance and ability to walk.
“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. And I know I’m stumbling around on stage.
“And now I’m having a little trouble balancing, even in front of the microphone, and so I just feel very uncomfortable.”
