Meet The Members Of Alan’s Beautiful Family

Alan Jackson and his wife, high school sweetheart Denise, were married for over ten years before they welcomed their first child into the world.

On June 19, 1990, Denise gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. They named her Mattie Denise Jackson, with her middle name honoring her mother.

The next seven years saw the addition of two more girls to the Jackson family. Daughter Alexandra Jane was born on August 23, 1993, affectionately known by her family as “Ali.” The Jackson’s  youngest child, daughter Dani Grace, was born on August 28, 1997,  just five days after Ali’s fourth birthday.

Get Ready To See How Much The Girls Have Grown

Over the years, fans had the chance to watch the Jackson girls grow as they popped up every now and then to support their father or appear at his performances. They even had starring roles in one of his music videos…the one that accompanied his sentimental song, “Drive.”

Mattie, Ali, and Dani are no longer the little girls who had a grand old time riding around with their father in the music video for “Drive.” They have grown into strong and beautiful women, and we have the photos to prove it.

If you haven’t seen Alan and Denise’s girls in some time, you may be surprised to see just how grown up they are now!

We’re throwing it way back with this first picture! That way, you can see just how much Alan and Denise’s daughters have grown in just a few short years.

This photo was taken during the 38th ACM Awards in 2002. Alan went home with the award for Video of the Year for “Drive,” and since his girls starred in the clip, it only made sense to bring them (and Denise!) as his dates. They all looked so pretty in their fancy dresses!

Fast forward eight years after they walked the red carpet at the ACM Awards, and Alan’s girls joined him yet again for another special event. This time he was being inducted on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Mattie was out of school by then, as she was approaching her 20th birthday. But her two younger sisters were still just teenagers…Ali was only 16 and Dani was 12! Still, even at those young ages, you could already tell that the Jackson girls were becoming beautiful young ladies.

The girls kept up their tradition of helping their dad celebrate his big accomplishments when they joined him for the unveiling of an exhibit in his honor at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

This photo was taken in 2014, just four years after his Hollywood Walk of Fame induction, and in that short time the girls grew up so much!

In June 2017, Alan shared this sweet photo with all three of his daughters to celebrate Father’s Day. “Best Fathers (sic) Day present is spending time with my beautiful girls,” he wrote.

Beautiful indeed!

In the Fall of 2017, the entire family got together to celebrate once again. This time, the whole bunch, including Mattie’s husband, Ben Selecman, dressed up in their finest attire to celebrate Alan’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Sadly, Ben passed away in September 2018, just one month shy of their one-year anniversary.

Are you starting to notice a pattern here? Alan’s talents are too great to go unrecognized, which is why he was awarded another great honor in the Summer of 2018.

That was the year he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Of course, Denise and the girls were on hand to celebrate the occasion.

In November 2018, Mattie joined her mother and sisters at an event showcasing NaSHEville. Mattie is the co-founder of NaSHEville, which “is a brand, a body, and a movement celebrating fierce, grace-filled women of Nashville and calling them to share their stories and gifts with other SHE’S of our city.”

They devote their time and energy to a number of causes, including providing support for widows and helping orphans. Sadly, Mattie’s personal experience fuels her passion to help others through the organization.

All three Jackson girls showed their support for NaSHEville by wearing t-shirts with its logo, while Denise donned a blouse in the organization’s signature bright pink shade.

Alan gushed about his beautiful girls by sharing the photo on social media. He encouraged all of his followers to check out NaSHEville to support women like his daughter Mattie.

In closing, Alan included a hashtag reading “#ProudOfAllMyGirls.”

In 2021, Mattie released a book titled Lemons on Friday. The book details how her faith helped her cope with losing Ben.

Alan and Denise were incredibly proud of Mattie and all the work she put into Lemons on Friday. Alan shared this photo from when he and Denise celebrated with Mattie at a party for the book’s release.

Alan posted this family photo on Thanksgiving in 2022. It was taken just a few weeks before Ali and her husband, Sam, welcomed their first child. They had a baby boy, and named him Jackson.

We, as fans, should be grateful that Alan and Denise have given us the chance to watch their girls’ journeys to where they are today. Because we too, are so proud of the women they have become.
