Jason Aldean Delivers Strong 2017 ACM Awards Performance With ‘Any Ol’ Barstool’
Dressed in a red jacket, cowboy boots and his signature cowboy hat, Aldean played guitar while delivering a solid vocal performance with simple multicolored lighting in the background while crooning the song's lyrics like "Ask any ol’ barstool in this town
Ask my new found party crowd / Sure I take more jack in my coke now / A little more high in my smoke now." The song serves as the third single from his No. 1 album They Don't Know. The track is currently in the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
Just before Aldean took the stage solo, hosts Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan performed a humorous sketch that found Bentley unknowingly sitting down with Bryan's wax figure that's set to be on display at the upcoming Nashville location of Madame Tussauds wax museum.
"I do a little gambling, he takes pictures for me," Bryan joked about his appreciation for his alter-ego. "I love him."
Aldean is up for two of the night's biggest awards including Entertainer of the Year alongside Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, and Male Vocalist of the Year that includes fellow nominees Bentley, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton and Urban.
He and his fellow Entertainer of the Year nominees opened the 52nd annual awards show with a medley of No. 1 hits. Aldean performed his chart-topping track "Lights Come On," while Bryan sang his recent hit "Move," followed by Florida Georgia Line's "H.O.L.Y" and Underwood's "Church Bells." Urban closed out the opening set with "Wasted Time."
