Aldean was born in Macon, Georgia.[2][4] His parents separated when he was three. He was raised by his mother in Macon, and during the summer he would spend time with his father in Homestead, Florida. Before his father went to work he would map out guitar chords on notebook paper to show Jason where to place his fingers to play the chords, and the boy would sit and practice all day while his dad was at work. When his dad got home, he got out his own guitar and they played together. Soon he could play a song after hearing it only a few times. His early favorites included George Strait's "The Cowboy Rides Away", Hank Williams Jr.'s "The Blues Man", and Alabama's "My Home's in Alabama". Both of his parents encouraged young Aldean as he progressed musically. From age 14, after watching the country-music awards on television, he wanted to perform on stage. With his mother's help, he performed at the local VFW
VFW
hall in Macon. He sang John Anderson's song "Seminole Wind" and Tracy Lawrence's "Sticks and Stones". He then began performing at area talent contests and local fairs. At 15, he joined the "house band" at Georgia nightspot Nashville

S. Aldean changed his name on the suggestion of Monte C. Willis, a music consultant hired by Barry Williams.[citation needed] "There was an artist named Jason D. Williams performing all over Nashville
Nashville
at the time and I felt like there would be a lot of confusion, so I called Barry and suggested the name change. Really, not an easy thing to suggest to a father, but ultimately it worked out well". Monte Willis said, "In order to stand out, he changed the spelling of his middle name, Aldine, to come up with the name Aldean."[5] Musical career[edit] After high school, with his father's help, Aldean and his band performed at clubs and festivals around the Southeast. With Justin Weaver (one of the band's members), Aldean began writing and recording songs with Savannah-based writer, Robert Willis; he also recorded a song written by hit songwriter, Keith Follose. In 1998, he performed songs from his first album at a showcase staged by Atlanta
Atlanta
nightclub The Buckboard. He was approached by Michael Knox, then of the Warner-Chappell song-publishing company.[4] After signing with Warner-Chappell, Aldean moved to Nashville
Nashville
on November 1, 1998, at age 21. Aldean was offered a recording contract but was subsequently dropped. He signed with another label but again was dropped in 2000 for postponing his recording sessions repeatedly. Various showcases failed to bring him a contract. The last straw was an attempt at the Wildhorse Saloon where the promised label talent scouts never even showed up. Finally, Lawrence Mathis spotted Aldean at one of the showcases at The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. He signed as Aldean's first manager. Still frustrated and discouraged with his struggling career, Aldean gave himself six months before planning to leave Nashville
Nashville
and return home to Georgia. Then five weeks later, he was offered a deal from Broken Bow Records
Broken Bow Records
in Nashville. Shortly after the release of his self-titled debut album, Aldean picked up his new (and current) agent Kevin Neal. Furthermore, while recording Relentless, Aldean moved to Clarence Spalding and Spalding Entertainment for management. 2005–07: Jason Aldean[edit] Aldean's debut single, "Hicktown", was released in early 2005.[4] It served as the lead-off to his self-titled debut album and reached a peak of No. 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.[6] The album also produced his first Number One hit in "Why",[6] This album finally released the No. 4 hit "Amarillo Sky",[6] which had previously been a non-charting single in 2002 for McBride & the Ride. This song earned a 2006 ACM nomination for Song of the Year and Video of the Year. Aldean earned the title "Top New Male Vocalist" at the 2006 ACM Awards. The album has sold over 1,000,000 copies in the United States and was certified platinum by the RIAA in 2007. 2007–08: Relentless[edit]

The song has also been Aldean's lowest-charting single both in the U.S. and Canada,[6] failing to reach the Top 10 on the country charts.[6] 2009–10: Wide Open[edit] Aldean released his seventh single titled "She's Country" on December 1, 2008. This song serves as the lead-off single from his third album Wide Open, which was released on April 7, 2009. The single debuted at No. 51 on the Hot Country Songs chart[6] in late-November 2008. Being his 7th consecutive Top 40 hit on the country charts,[6] it is also his 1st Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

in the beginning of May, and the episode premiered on June 26, 2009.[7] In an interview with Shave Magazine, Aldean explained that working with Bryan on Crossroads "was great" and that "[h]e was a lot of fun." But the real highlight for him was that he was working with Randy Owen. "I am a big fan of Alabama so I got a chance to work with Randy Owen on this album (it didn't make the album but it eventually made a bonus track). It was really cool. Alabama were like 'The Beatles' for me so working with him was definitely one of the highlights," he said "I mean, both of those guys were really cool moments, but if I had to pick one highlight, it would be working with Randy [Owen] this year."[8] A live DVD titled Wide Open Live & More was released on August 25, 2009. At the 2010 CMT Music Awards, Aldean picked up 3 nominations in Video of the Year and Male Video of the Year for "The Truth", as well as Collaborative Video of the Year and CMT Performance of the Year for his performance of "Heaven" with Bryan Adams.[9] 2010–12: My Kinda Party[edit] In August 2010, Aldean released a new single "My Kinda Party", which entered the Hot Country Songs chart at No. 41.[6] It is the lead-off single from his album of the same name, which was released on November 2, 2010.[10] It marks as Aldean's tenth top-10 country hit.[6] Aldean also collaborated with Kelly Clarkson
