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's Wikipedia page is full of information, but like so many pages on the user-updated website, there is a good mix of facts, almost fact and flat-out fiction. The "Any Ol' Barstool" singer sat down to straighten out some of the details, sharing background info on his childhood, his parents' divorce and what truly happens in that barn on his farm.
BBR Music Group's showcase at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville Wednesday night (Feb. 22) featured plenty of past hits, as well as new singles that will become part of the soundtrack for the summer of 2017 and beyond.
Jason Aldean is moving out, or from the looks of it, he's moved out. The singer and his wife, Brittany Kerr, are selling Blackjack Ridge, a 4,000-square-foot home on 1,400 acres southwest of Nashville.
