Jason Aldean is a known country music artist behind the hit singles such as ‘Why,’ ‘The Truth’ and ‘Dirt Road Anthem.’
Born as Jason Aldine Williams on February 28, 1977, in Macon, Georgia, Aldean honed his musical talents at an early age. Although his parents split, he continued to get love from them, living with his mom while spending summer at his father’s home. He was a baseball prodigy at Windsor Academy and drew the interest of several college teams, but Aldean followed his passion for music rather than accepting an athletic scholarship.
His father served as his booking agent when he was starting, signing with Warner-Chapell Publishing making him move to Nashville 1998, but instead found his career on hold. He also signed a contract with Capitol Records Nashville but also failed to produce an album for him. Close to ending his music career, talent scout Lawrence Mathis heard Aldean’s sensational music style and immediately recruited him to his new independent label Broken Bow and produced Aldean’s first and self-titled album. His first single “Hicktown,” managed to sneak on the Billboard country Top 10 in 2005 while his follow-up single, “Why,” skyrocketed all the way to No. 1, leading the former struggling artist to stardom.
His second album Relentless was not able to top his debut album despite the success of its lead single, “Johnny Cash.” However, Aldean’s third album Wide Open loaded by tracks “She’s Country,” “Big Green Tractor” and “The Truth” all reached the No. 1. He became known worldwide when his fourth album My Kinda Party with hits “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” “Fly Over States” and “Dirt Road Anthem” — an unusual country-rap song — all hit No. 1, driving the album to multi-platinum status.
He had a stranglehold in country music’s summit and earned recognition as the Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year in 2016. His album They Don’t Know, gave him his second consecutive ACM Entertainer of the Year award in April 2017.
Away from his music career, Aldean married Jessica Ussery. The two met in high school but ended up in a split after the country star filed for divorce in April 2013. Aldean then married former American Idol contestant and pro football cheerleader Brittany Kerr, in March 2015. The couple has a son named Memphis, and are expecting their second child.
