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 is gearing up for another busy year. The "Gonna Know We Were Here" singer tells Taste of Country that he is headed back into the studio to work on the follow-up to his 2014 release Old Boots, New Dirt.
Jason Aldean's trip back to high school in the video for "Gonna Know We Were Here" is one of the only new videos in the ToC Top 10 Countdown poll this week, replacing his visual for "Tonight Looks Good on You."
There are few honors more appreciated by an artist than being called one of the best live acts in country music, and this Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards category gives ToC readers a chance to decide who was tops in 2015.
