Jason Aldean was six months away from giving up his dream to return home to Georgia when he was offered a recording contract with Broken Bow Records. He was discouraged after years spent trying to “make it” in Nashville, only to have deals fall or promises go unkept. Aldean moved to Nashville at age 21, but wouldn’t release his first single until ‘Hicktown’ hit radio in 2005. Songs from his first two albums met mixed results, but his fanbase grew slowly as people realized he was helping to usher in a new era of country music. ‘She’s Country’ from the ‘Wide Open’ album would begin a streak of Top 5 singles, including multiple multi-Platinum releases. By 2012, he was in regular consideration for the format’s top awards.
Birthday: February 28, 1977
Top Songs: 'Hicktown,' 'Dirt Road Anthem,' 'Don't You Wanna Stay'
Jason Aldean has always been the subject of much chatter, and lately, the buzz has been all about his impending wedding to fiancee Brittany Kerr. Despite rumors, the two lovebirds have not said "I do" yet, but it seems they will very soon!
When it comes down to numbers, Jason Aldean can't be beat. The 'Just Gettin' Started' hitmaker won the very first American Country Countdown Artist of the Year Award on Monday night, capping a two-hour broadcast that featured few surprises, but plenty of electricity.
