Most Jason Aldean fans already know about the use of a stage name, his divorce drama with Jessica Ussery, his second wife Brittany Kerr, the fact he and Britt are expecting a son, etc. But do you know about how he likes his coffee or where he shops? Check out this list of twelve Jason Aldean facts that most people don’t know below!
1) The weirdest thing Jason Aldean has ever autographed was a fan’s prosthetic leg. (Keith Urban had the same thing happen to him… is this a thing?!)
2) The Georgia native enjoys singing karaoke and his favorite song for the occasion is “Drift Away” by Dobie Gray. He also thinks it’s lame when an artist opts to sing their own songs during a fun-filled karaoke session.
3) Jason is no stranger to online shopping and searches eBay in order to add to his extensive vintage t-shirt collection.
4) Though he never went to college, the star is wild about the University of Georgia and its football team. He even named a pet bulldog “Athens” after the famous college town.
5) Aldean and frequent hunting buddy Luke Bryan proudly sport matching Buck Commander logo tattoos on their upper arms to commemorate their shared passion for the outdoor sport.
6) The entertainer’s coffee order is super simple— he likes his coffee black with at least four packets of sweetener. That’s one way to start your day…
7) No wonder he’s so lucky— Jason has two lucky numbers, 9 and 3. Both come from his days playing baseball as a youth.
8) His mom drove him to his first gigs as a budding musician. Yes, at just 14-years-old he was booking gigs at bars before he could even drive!
9) In order to support himself, Jason began working at a Georgia Pepsi plant at 17-years-old and eventually drove the delivery truck around to all the local convenience stores.
10) As a young baseball player, he insisted on playing first base because he noticed players in that position got the most on-camera time in the big leagues.
11) Jason’s absolute favorite country music band is Alabama.
12) Believe it or not, country artist Jake Owen was offered the chance to record “Big Green Tractor” first but declined the opportunity. As we all know, the song was a huge hit for Aldean and helped launch him into country music superstar status.
So far during his storied career, Jason has released a total of seven albums and 24 singles. Of his singles, 19 have reached number one on either the Hot Country Songs or Country Airplay charts with “Why”, “She’s Country”, “Big Green Tractor”, “The Truth”, “Don’t You Wanna Stay” (featuring Kelly Clarkson), “Dirt Road Anthem”, “Fly Over States”, “Take a Little Ride”, “The Only Way I Know” (with Luke Bryan and Eric Church), “Night Train”, “When She Says Baby”, “Burnin’ It Down”, “Just Gettin’ Started”, “Tonight Looks Good on You”, “Lights Come On”, “A Little More Summertime”, and “Any Ol’ Barstool”. His eighth studio album is expected to drop in late 2017 or early 2018.
