Alan Jackson is paying tribute to one of his oldest fans.  The "Bangor Daily News" says Jackson sent his best - as well as a few special gifts - to Barbara Bowden last week as she celebrated her 100th birthday. 

Barbara's daughter Cheryl Sedgwick says Alan gave her mom an autographed t-shirt and several signed CDs as well as a hat and a letter congratulating her on reaching the milestone. 

She adds that she "tried to get him here for an appearance and to sing 'Happy Birthday,'" but other performance commitments kept Jackson from attending the party.
