Trivia: Jason Aldean

  • Black Sheep Hit: For a long time, "Why" was both his only love ballad and his only #1 hit.
    • Inverted with "Don't You Wanna Stay", his first hit at AC.
    • In addition, his highest charting hit on the Billboard Hot 100 to date is "Dirt Road Anthem," a country-rap song, which is a very different style from his other songs.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Most online outlets (including iTunes) seem to have only the "Rocky tops" version of "Take a Little Ride", although you might find the odd radio station still playing the "Shiner Bock" version.
  • Missing Episode: Narrowly averted with Relentless. There was a fire in the studio where the masters were held, but it stopped just shy of said masters. He was literally finishing the album in a smoky, ashen building.
  • What Could Have Been: He was signed to Capitol Records in 2001, but never released anything for them.
