On This Day: Jason Aldean Releases His Debut Album in 2005

by Joe Rutland

There’s no doubt Outsiders love their country music. They also love Jason Aldean, who on this day released his debut album in 2005.

Time does fly, doesn’t it? Well for Aldean, he broke into the country music scene in a big way with his self-titled debut album. Aldean didn’t forget, sending out a tweet from his Twitter account on Monday marking the anniversary.

Take a look and hey, while you’re at it, pick your favorite song from that first album and let us (and Jason Aldean) know about it.

Those are 11 solid choices from Jason Aldean, a 44-year-old who hails from Macon, Ga. That first album is certified platinum in sales.

It joined “Relentless,” “Wide Open,” and “Old Boots, New Dirt” as platinum albums. But hey, Aldean’s album sales soared as “My Kinda Party” reached the quadruple-platinum level. “Night Train” from 2012 hit double-platinum in sales, so Aldean’s been doing some work his fans just love all the time.

In fact, speaking of singles, 22 of the 35 that Jason Aldean has released have hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country or Country Airplay charts. Talk about riding a wave of success. Jason Aldean is hitting home runs left and right throughout his career.

Aldean released his most recent album, simply titled “9” for his ninth album, on Nov. 22, 2019. His latest single off of that album, “Blame It On You,” reached the No. 1 spot.

So, today is a good day to remember when Jason Aldean broke on through to the world of country music. It started years before this date for him. Yet he’ll always remember this day as a special one. Outsiders who love Aldean and his music will, too.

Jason Aldean Joined Other Country Music Artists In Getting Back On The Road

Since a lot of other country music artists are getting back out on the road these days, Jason Aldean is just adding his name to the list.

If you can say “Vegas, Baby, Vegas,” then you’ll be able to head out and see him perform in Sin City.

Aldean will be performing three nights at the Park Theater inside the MGM Resort in December. The “Back in the Saddle” shows will take place on Dec. 9, 10, and 11. Lainey Wilson, an up-and-coming country singer, will also be on the bill, too.

“Can’t wait to see y’all,” Aldean tweeted alongside the announcement.

There’s little doubt that his fans cannot wait to see him, either. But Aldean also has a rather sad connection to Nevada. He was on stage at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on Oct. 1, 2017, when a mass murderer open-fired on the crowd below his hotel room.
