Jackson interpreted “A Prayer for All” with Greek singer and musician George Ntalaras. He described “A Prayer for All” as an exciting experience. “That was a cool project to be a part of,” he admitted. “The Greek Orthodox faith has become a part of my world, and I love it.”

Jackson expressed that he was “grateful” to offer his Emmy Award to Mount Athos Monastery in Greece back in 2018. He revealed that he has more film projects, documentaries, and developments as well.

On July 12, Jackson will be at The Brokerage in Bellmore on Long Island, while on July 13, he will be at Rockwells in Pelham, New York. These in-person fan events are produced by Coastal Entertainment.

“I am very excited,” he said. “Those shows will be cool. It will be fun to go out and play shows with Clare Bowen and her husband, Brandon. They are a duo now. Their new record is really amazing, and they are doing some beautiful music together.”

“Those shows will be fun. It is nice to have the more intimate shows,” he said. “The fans will get to hear new music in that space, as well as stories and conversations with people; it’s cool.”

“We will get to share stories about our times in the show ‘Nashville’ together and we will have time to connect with the fans, so that will be cool,” he added.

On the title of the current chapter of his life, Jackson said, “Being grateful and patient.”

Jackson fondly remembered the late Emmy award-winning actor Tyler Christopher. “Losing Tyler was so devastating and so sad,” Jackson said about losing the actor who once played his on-screen brother.

“I miss him, and I really pray for his family. That was a real blow. Tyler and I really had a close connection on that show,” Jackson added.

He is gearing up for Greek Orthodox Easter, which falls on Sunday, May 5th. “Holy Week is the highlight of our year,” he said. “It is amazing and unlike anything that you can experience anywhere else. It is just astounding, so I am really excited about that.”

Jackson noted that e has been to the Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Los Angeles several times. “I was there years ago,” he recalled. “It’s a pretty impressive and big, beautiful space for sure.”
