Before this song, Jackson honored his father with “Drive (For Daddy Gene) and shared the story of how we wrote it after losing his father in 2000. A few of his biggest hits like “It’s Five O-Clock Somewhere,” “Chattahoochee,” and “Where I Come From,” were the last three songs before the encore of K.C. Douglas’s “Mercury Blues.” The video for “Where I Come From” paid tribute to the L.A. area sports teams like the Dodgers, Rams, Chargers, Kings and Lakers. Along with the songs Jackson’s music videos played along with most. For 40 years Jackson has stayed true to playing real country music.
