With numerous platinum-selling albums and more than 20 Number 1 hits, Jason Aldean is one of the superstars of America's modern-day country music scene. He was born on February 28, 1977, in Macon, Georgia, and moved to Nashville as a teenager to further his musical ambitions. After signing with the independent label Broken Bow Records, he released the self-titled debut album Jason Aldean in 2005. The record went platinum on the strength of three hit singles, including the Number 1 hit "Why." A long line of successful releases followed, with albums like 2012's Night Train, 2016's They Don't Know, and 2018's Rearview Town all reaching Number 1 not only on the Top Country Albums chart, but also the Billboard 200. He released more than a dozen platinum-certified singles along the way, with 2009's "Big Green Tractor" and 2011's "Dirt Road Anthem" becoming his best-selling hits. Maintaining a prolific pace well into his forties, he released Macon in late 2021, followed by the companion album Georgia in early 2022.
