Jason Aldean Covers Garth Brooks’ ‘Much Too Young (to Feel This Damn Old)’ [LISTEN]
As part of music streaming platform Spotify’s Spotify Singles series, Jason Aldean recorded an acoustic cover of Garth Brooks‘ “Much Too Young (to Feel This Damn Old).” Readers can press play below to hear it.
Brooks’ debut single, “Much Too Young (to Feel This Damn Old)” was originally released in March of 1989. The song peaked in the Top 10 (No. 8) on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart; Brooks has included the song on a number of his greatest hits compilations, and it remains an in-concert favorite.
For his part, Brooks has expressed his admiration of Aldean: “The kid’s a good talent,” Brooks said in the fall of 2014, “and I’d like to see him around with some new music.”
“For me, growing up and watching Garth’s career and how big he was and is, to sit here and even talk about competing with him is almost comical to me,” Aldean said in response. “I never in a million years thought that the guy would even know who I was.”
Aldean is spending his summer out on the road, on his They Don’t Know Tour. He and his wife Brittany are also preparing for the arrival of their first child together, a baby boy; the singer has two daughters, 14-year-old Keeley and 9-year-old Kendyl, from his first marriage.
