May We Spread Mom’s Ashes at your Home, Alan Jackson?
The daughter of a life-long Alan Jackson superfan hopes the singer will allow her to sprinkle her late mother’s ashes on his Nashville area property, as her final resting place. 

Sue Castle actually flew into Music City earlier this week from her home in Maine to make her mom, Mary Anne Gallant’s, last wishes happen.

Castle told that her strategic options included dropping them from a helicopter, tossing them over a fence, “throw them out the window as I‘m driving by” or, preferably, get Jackson’s approval to spread them in a specific spot.

Gallant was reportedly once brought up on stage during one of Jackson’s 2015 concerts because her huge back tattoo of his face caught his attention.  He even danced with her during “Remember When,” – which Gallant later said was the happiest night of her life.

Gallant died in 2021.  According to her daughter, she attended two dozen of Jackson’s concerts.


  • Alan was honored last night (Wednesday, October 12th) with the Artist of a Lifetime award at the annual CMT Artists of The Yeataping in Nashville.
  • The show, which also honors Luke Combs, Carly Pearce, Kane Brown, Cody Johnson and Walker Hayes, is set to premiere tomorrow, Friday (October 14th) at 8 p.m. [9 p.m. ET].
