Born Jason Aldine Williams in 1977 in Macon, Georgia, he experienced his parent’s divorce when he was just three years old. He lived with his mother in Macon for most of the time where he also received his formal education.
He started playing the guitar when he was very young. During summers, he would spend time in his father’s house in Homestead, Florida. His father used to give him with guitar chords mapped just before he left for work. These notes, which were written on notebook paper, helped young Jason learn playing the guitar by showing him where to place his fingers. He would spend the entire day practicing, and once his father returned from work, he would get the guitar out and they would both play various country songs.
Aldean’s favorite country songs were Alabama’s “My home’s in Alabama” and George Strait’s “The Cowboy Rides Away”. He took to his idols and soon he was able to play popular country tunes just after listening to them for a few times. After seeing some country music awards on his TV, he decided that he wanted to play on stage. His first opportunity came when he was invited to perform in the local hall.
He stated later on that all his 10 audience members applauded his performance and that he was almost dragged off the stage. He later changed his name from Jason Aldine Williams to Jason Aldean due to the existence of other people being called Jason Williams as well, among which one was reputable basketball player.
Aldean started playing in a house band in his town during high school, and after graduating he started playing mostly in University venues. Starting from 1998 he began to write songs along with band member Justin Weaver. In the 2000s he was offered a recording contract, and his career soon took off, with several albums going single, double and triple-platinum. Jason Aldean is now among the favorite country singers in the US and he is continuing to write and release highly successful single hits as well as albums.
