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'

No one in attendance could remember anything quite like it. This week's celebration for a trifecta of Jason Aldean hits seems to be a first, and it came just as the singer is releasing a fourth single from his Old Boots, New Dirt album.
Jason Aldean is in the business of turning out radio hits, and "Gonna Know We Were Here" doesn’t disobey. The uptempo country-rocker stays true to the singer’s well-tested formula. It’s a song his fans will want to turn up loud, quickly.
