Early Life And Career
Jason Aldine Williams was born in Macon, Georgia, on February 28, 1977. Despite the fact that his parents divorced when he was a baby, he claims that both of them encouraged him to pursue his passion for music. As a teenager, he began performing locally and eventually joined a band that toured the area. Around this time, he changed the spelling of his middle name and began performing under the name Jason Aldean.
In 1998, Aldean signed with his first label and relocated to Nashville, Tennessee. The first alliance didn’t work out, and the second didn’t either.
He didn’t achieve success until 2005, when he released his self-titled album. Through the label Broken Arrow Records, the album went platinum and produced three top ten songs, including “Amarillo Sky,” “Hicktown,” and “Why.” In its first week, his second album, “Relentless,” debuted at number one on the country music charts and sold approximately 100,000 copies.
In December of 2008, he released his smash track “She’s Country.” In 2009, he released his album “Wide Open,” which opened at number two on the country music album charts. There were more hits after that. In 2011, Aldean sang “Dirt Road Anthem” on stage with Ludacris, the same year he won the Country Music Association Award for album of the year and was nominated for the American Music Awards for country album of the year.
Over the years, other hits and award nominations followed, all of which went platinum. Three of his albums debuted at number one on the Billboard album list by 2016.
Jason Aldean owns a $5.35 million, 120-acre estate in Columbia, Tennessee, roughly an hour from Nashville. He and his wife have been renovating the space, which includes a bowling alley, tiki bar, luxury pool, and rustic décor.
Aldean married Jessica Ann Ussery in 2001, and the couple has two daughters together. In 2012, he publicly admitted to acting improperly with Brittany Kerr, a former “American Idol” competitor, and the couple split the following year. In September of 2014, he announced his engagement to Kerr, and the two married in March of 2015. They are the parents of two children. He is a strong advocate for breast cancer research and has raised over $4 million for it, with the majority of it going to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
