Before he traded in his bat for a guitar, he dreamed of being a baseball player. A lifelong fan of the game, he always planned on making it to Fenway, albeit as a baseball player rather than as a performer.Being from Georgia, he grew up watching the Atlanta Braves. Despite his hometown loyalty, he's also a fan of the Boston Red Sox. He began attending Red Sox games about five years ago.
Discontent with his own inability to decide on a single, Jason Aldean asked his fans to help him choose the next single off his upcoming album "Night Train." He posted on his Facebook page, asking fans for help: “Decisions Decisions!!!! Tryin to decide on what the next single should be. Any thoughts?” Along with the request, he gave three options from his “Night Train” album: "Feel That Again," "Night Train" and "When She Says Baby." Aldean said "Staring at the Sun" is his favorite track from the album.
Not content with just singing about country life, Aldean lives it. He enjoys the outdoors, especially buck hunting. On the Buck Commander website, there is a photo of Aldean sporting some face paint and decked out in camo. The other owners of Buck Commander include Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty,” baseball players Ryan Langerhans and Adam LaRoche, country singer Luke Bryan and former MLB player Tombo Martin.
The verses of "Dirt Road Anthem" have more in common with hip-hop than country music. In a studio remix of the song, Aldean collaborated with rapper Ludacris. At the 2011 CMT awards, the two appeared onstage together.
