Rarely a prolific writer, Alan Jackson composed all 17 tunes this time for Good Time, and almost every cut is steeped in contentedness. Maybe he figured he'd better provide supporting evidence after his wife penned a best-seller about their mended marriage. That isn't to say Jackson, the gold standard of country's workingman courtliness, can't also play the part of the sly spouse. ''Nothing Left to Do'' (follow-up line: ''...now that we've done it'') is probably the most amusingly objective song ever written about the routineness of certain marital pleasures.
