“All the wonderful fans I’ve had all over the world. Appreciate y’all,” he was heard telling viewers.

“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.”

The clip was taken at the 2022 Country Music Association Awards, where he received the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award.

The music legend has been suffering from Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, an incurable neurological disorder, and opened up about it in a 2021 interview with TODAY‘s Jenna Bush Hager.

He said he was diagnosed with the non-deadly disease a decade ago, and shared it had affected his 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,” Jackson told Bush Hager.

“And now I’m having a little trouble balancing, even in front of the microphone, and so I just feel very uncomfortable.”

Back in October Jackson postponed a pair of shorts in Pittsburgh and Atlantic City citing health concerns, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.


But the musician seemed to put speculation about his well-being to rest in November 2022 following his lively performance at the CMA Awards.

Jackson, who is behind 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.”
