Jason Aldean

About Jason Aldean

When fans reflect on the songs that have dominated country radio airwaves in the past decade, Jason Aldean is a name that immediately springs to mind. The Georgia native’s rock-infused country sound has fueled a lengthy string of hits that includes such chart-toppers as “She’s Country,” “Big Green Tractor,” “Dirt Road Anthem,” “Fly Over States,” “Take a Little Ride,” “Burnin’ It Down,” and his hit duet with Kelly Clarkson, “Don’t You Wanna Stay.”

Born in Macon, Georgia, Jason developed a love of music as a young child.  Though his parents divorced when he was three, both his mother and father encouraged his budding musical aspirations, with his dad helping him learn guitar while his mom shuttled him to performances at fairs, festivals and local talent competitions when he was in his teens. He graduated high school and continued performing around Georgia. When he turned 21, he made the move to Nashville to pursue his dreams.

Jason’s early days in Music City weren’t easy. He was signed and dropped by two record labels without any music being released. He was close to giving up and heading back to Georgia when he landed a deal with Broken Bow Records. His debut single, “Hicktown,” was released in 2005 and introduced fans to his high-octane brand of country, putting both himself and the then fledgling record label on the map. His self-titled debut album also included the hits “Why” and “Amarillo Sky,” which helped establish Jason as one of country music’s rising stars and earned him the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Male Vocalist award in 2006.

Since then, Jason’s momentum has steadily continued as he’s scored a succession of chart-topping hits and filled stadiums on his concert tours. A decade after his first ACM win, he took the stage at the show to accept his first entertainer of the year honor in 2016, a feat he repeated in 2017.

Just when life seemed like it couldn’t be any better for Jason, tragedy struck during his performance at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, 2017 when a gunman opened fire on Jason and his audience from a nearby hotel room, killing 58 country music fans and injuring hundreds more. A week after the massacre, Jason and his then-pregnant wife Brittany returned to Vegas to visit the wounded in the hospital.

Jason credits the December 2017 birth of his son, Memphis, with helping him heal from the tragedy, along with the support of Brittany, who he married in 2015, and his two daughters from a previous marriage, Keeley and Kendyl. He’ll spend 2018 changing diapers and introducing fans to new music from his latest album, “Rearview Town.”
