Jason Aldean is definitely our kind of country superstar! His lucky numbers are 9 and 3. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly , Jason explained he aligned with the number 9 because it was his baseball number in high school. The performer's backup digit, though, is 3 because that was the baseball number he had before high school; plus, the prime number also happens to be his daughter's old softball number, too.
Like father, like daughter! Suffice to say, we approve of this singer's impeccable taste in TV! Jason Aldean was born Jason Aldine Williams. Before pursuing a music career, Jason changed his stage surname to Aldean, which was a play on his middle name, because he thought Jason Williams was far too generic.
He got his start by playing bars at age Back when Jason was a young teen, his mom drove the budding musician to and from his shows, but always made sure he made it home in time finish his math homework! Jason's a huge fan of the University of Georgia's football team. He even got a pet bulldog in honor of the school's mascot and named it Athens after the university's town. Talk about school pride! When he's not rocking arenas, you can catch him at bars, singing karaoke with friends. Jason's a die-hard karaoke fan and will sing just about anything after a few tequila drinks.
His favorite karaoke song? Before he became a country-music star, Jason drove a soda delivery truck to pay the bills. He credits his father for his scorching guitar skills. After Jason's parents divorced when he was three, the little tyke spent the summers with his dad in Florida. The Williams' clan would spend hours jamming and bouncing musical ideas off of each other, but neither could've expected those lessons would lead Jason to multiple honors by the Academy of Country Music. The strangest thing he's autographed is a prosthetic leg.
Jason's no stranger to signing autographs, but one male fan took him by surprise when he asked to have his prosthetic leg signed. And, yes, the man took his leg off before Jason signed it. Anything for the fans, right? His first ride was a pickup truck. Back in the day, this ACM Award-winning artist used to drive around a beat-up pickup truck, which he bought when he was 16 with the money he made playing local shows. His ride may be a little nicer now, but his unwavering work ethic hasn't changed a bit.
Jason's knows how to hit things out of the park. When he was a kid, Jason insisted on playing first base because he noticed players in that position got the most air-time on TV. He turned down a baseball scholarship to pursue music. So, instead, he swapped the bat for an ax and decided to chase his dreams in Nashville. He loves sushi. Jason might enjoy this Japanese cuisine, but you won't ever catch him eating a spicy tuna roll because he absolutely hates spicy mayo.
Sashimi, anyone? These three country-superstar amigos make time in their busy schedules to head outdoors and hunt. In fact, they love it so much, Jason and Luke got matching buck tattoos.
He's got an extensive collection of vintage shirts. Not one for shopping malls, Jason has embraced the beauty of online shopping and his favorite items to order are the vintage T-shirts he finds on eBay. The man has a bit of a sweet tooth. Long nights on the road often call for a morning pick-me-up, which, for Jason, equals black coffee with a minimum of four packets of no-calorie sweeteners.
He's a pop-music fan—and he's not ashamed to own it. You might not find Jason twerking in the crowd at a Miley Cyrus concert, but you might find him singing all the words along with his two daughters, Keeley and Kendyl.
His favorite band is Alabama. He may hail from Georgia, but Alabama will always have his heart. Before becoming a hat aficionado, Jason used to rock a mullet.
Nowadays, it's rare to ever catch Jason not sporting one of his signature cowboy hats, but there was a time when the "Big Green Tractor" singer rocked a pret-ty impressive mullet. While the long hair might be gone, Jason's "business in the front, party in the back" motto still lives on.
