Watch as Jason Aldean absolutely tears up a fantastic rendition of his song ‘Johnny Cash’ during his 2010 U.S. tour, in this unedited, raw concert footage.

Of the night’s performance, a reviewer for SoundsLikeNashville.com said that “Jason took the stage to an absolutely adoring, near-capacity crowd of 6,300. From the split second that he took the stage until the final note was silent, this crowd was on their feet in admiration of someone who is surely becoming one of country music’s biggest stars.”

As we know in 2020, this absolutely came true. “Although it’s easy to see that he’s a talented guitar player and a great singer, it was obvious to me that Jason’s true calling comes in the form of being an entertainer,” the staff reviewer adds. Too true.

And what better evidence of this is there than the following performance? Within the concert, Aldean sings – and absolutely destroys – his classic track ‘Johnny Cash.’

Instead of spoiling it for you, we highly recommend living out this Country Throwback for yourself:

Jason Aldean: The Tribute King

Aldean fans will have, no doubt, caught his electric CMA awards cover, as well.

Jason absolutely crushed the CMA Awards in honor of Charlie Daniels with “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” alongside a star-studded ensemble.

The CMA Award’s executive producer, Robert Deaton, says of the opening performance: “We are honored, in this very challenging time, to help provide an escape and deliver a live awards show experience unlike any other this year.” And deliver they did.

Few icons have produced a song like “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Just this July, the song’s mastermind, legend Charlie Daniels, left us after suffering a stroke. His incredible legacy, however, lives on forever. In fact, the 54th Annual CMA Awards ensured it.

Absolutely slaying Devil for the night’s opening performance, Jason Aldean spearheads the song of the evening in honor of Daniels. Alongside him playing other Charlie Daniels hits are none other than Dierks Bentley, The Brothers Osborne, and Ashley McBryde.
