Full Name: Jason Aldine Williams – “Jason Aldean”

Hometown: Macon, Georgia

Born: February 28th, 1977

Biography: Jason Aldean was raised by his mother in Macon, Georgia along with spending time with his father in Homestead, Florida with his father during the summers. He grew up learning guitar at age 14 from his dad after work. Aldean first performed “Sticks and Stones” by Tracey Lawrence at a local venue in Macon to become hooked on being a performer.

He moved to Nashville in 1998 after being signed by Warner-Chappel in Nashville. This was the start of his frustrating beginning years as he got dropped in 2000 for delayed recording sessions. In a last ditch effort before moving back to Georgia, he played the Wildhorse saloon and eventually got picked up by Broken Bow Records. His new gig led to his self-titled debut album which turned his luck around.

Songs from his album such as “Hicktown, Why, and Amarillo Sky” had been hitting the Billboards Hot New Country Songs Charts which led to a huge breakthrough for Aldean. He would eventually come out with more chart-topping albums such as:

  1. Jason Aldean – 2005
  2. Relentless – 2007
  3. Wide Open – 2009
  4. My Kinda Party – 2010
  5. Night Train – 2012
  6. Old Boots, New Dirt – 2014

With many successful singles in between, Aldean has been hard at work in the industry ever since his signing of Broken Bow Records since the beginning, he did however hit a bumpy road with his private life. He married his high school sweetheart, Jessica Ussery, in 2001 and had two girls named Kendyl and Keeley. Aldean hit his bumpy road when he was accused of being inappropriate with former American Idol participant, Brittany Kerr. They eventually divorce and then Brittany is officially noted as Aldeans “date” to the 2014 CMT Awards. Since then, Jason and Brittany have been happily married living out their musical careers together.
