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'
Supply and demand is a simple concept: When you keep selling out shows, you have to add more to meet the demands of your dedicated fans. This is nothing new for Jason Aldean, who just extended his touring schedule in Georgia.
Jason Aldean's 2014 Burn It Down Tour is off to a great start, and the tour bus hasn't even left the station! The first stadium show of the trek -- a concert at MLB's Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio -- sold out Friday morning (Feb. 7).
Police in Louisville, Ky. say a man scammed a family and a local business out of $9,000 by claiming he could arrange a Jason Aldean concert to raise money for a sick 2-year-old girl. Kyle Nunn has been arrested and charged with two felony counts of theft by deception.
Country men and denim go together like sweet and tea. It's a not-so-secret secret that the best part of a front row ticket to one see one of country's top male performers sing is the view from close up. And recently, stars like Luke Bryan have begun to oblige with tight-fitting blue jeans.
Jason Aldean had a big year in 2013, both professionally and personally. He won an ACM for Male Vocalist and saw three Top 10 singles chart, but also faced some issues at home, divorcing his wife, high school sweetheart Jessica Ussery.
Jason Aldean announced his 2014 touring plans on 'Good Morning America' on Thursday morning (Jan. 9).
