Today in 2002, Alan Jackson’s "Drive (For Daddy Gene)" was cruising along at the top of the chart.
"Drive (For Daddy Gene)" was written and recorded Alan Jackson. It was released in January 2002 as the second single from his album, "Drive". It reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks in May 2002 and also peaked at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song is dedicated to Alan's father, Eugene Jackson, who had died on January 31, 2000. In the song, Alan recalls as a child he and his father driving around the countryside in an old beat up truck that they fixed up together as well as a boat they would drive around the lake. In the final verse, Alan talks about sharing his childhood experiences with his daughters and letting them drive his Jeep.
