Through his self-titled studio album containing 11 tracks, Jason Aldean stepped into the spotlight in July 2005. Singles from the album “Why,” “Amarillo Sky,” and “Hicktown,” topped the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs and the album was later certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Packed with a serious swagger, a slightly steely edge, and a way with a ballad, he wrote his name among the new biggest stars of the early 2000s.
Born as Jason Aldine Williams, the 46-year-old American country music singer has released 11 studio albums under Broken Bow Records throughout his career. He has been nominated for 5 Grammy Awards, including the Best Country Duo/Group Performance award for his “If I Didn’t Love You” with Carrie Underwood in 2022. He won the ACM Award for Top New Male Vocalist back in 2005, CMA Awards for Musical Event of the Year (“Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson), and Album of the Year (“My Kinda Party”) in 2011. In the following years, Jason also won several ACM Awards, including the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award in 2019.
On May 19, 2023, he released the lead single “Try That in a Small Town” for his eleventh album “Highway Desperado,” which was released on November 3, 2023. The music video debuted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the best chart performance of his career. The following week, it rose to the number one spot and became Jason Aldean’s first national chart-topper. However, it generated controversy for invoking imagery related to the 2020 George Floyd protest while being filmed in front of the Maury Country courthouse, the site of a 1946 race riot and a 1927 lynching of a Black man. Four days after its release, the music video was taken down from the air by Country Music Television (CMT). While several artists denounced the song and music video, it still gained support from country musicians Cody Johnson, Brantley Gilbert, and former US president Donald Trump.
Jason Aldean is currently on tour across the country for the “Highway Desperado Tour.” The tour’s second leg will kick off starting May 18, 2024. On the 25th of August, he will be at the Bank of NH Pavilion. Tickets are now on sale, so get yours and don’t miss the chance to see him perform live. See you there!
