Jason Aldean cut his teeth singing ’90s country hits back home in Georgia before making the move to Nashville to become a country star. We’re sure those early sets included plenty of Garth Brooks songs, and Jason is dipping back into Garth’s catalog for a new cover of the G-man’s 1989 debut hit, “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old).”
Jason recorded the song live at Spotify Studios in New York City, and he sounds like a natural singing the lyrics about a cowboy who’s lost just about everything chasing his rodeo dreams.
Looking at Jason’s brand of rock-infused country music and high-energy live shows, it’s clear Garth is the guy who knocked down the door for Jason to do what he does. Garth has even taken notice of Jason’s unapologetic style.
Back in 2014, Garth gave Jason a shout out at a Chicago press conference. According to CMT.com, Garth said, “Guys like Jason Aldean, who came out with what I call ‘muscle country,’ [the] poor guy came out and did it, and he was the only guy doing it — and then everybody jumped on it, you know? Everybody tried to do that Jason thing.”
Jason also joined Garth on the all-star recording of “Friends in Low Places” featuring Florida Georgia Line and George Strait. It was released last year on Garth’s “The Ultimate Collection” box set.
