Jason Aldean

Born Jason Aldine Williams in Macon, Ga., Jason Aldean reformatted his name when he decided to pursue a career in country music. Aldean’s parents, Barry and Debbie, divorced when he was three years old, so he was raised mainly by his mother, but spent summers in Florida with his father, who taught him to play guitar. He moved to Nashville in 1998, after signing a publishing deal, but success didn’t come easy: Aldean says that after years of struggling, and shortly before signing with Broken Bow Records, he gave himself a limit of six more months in Music City to “make it.” The singer released his self-titled debut album in 2005; its three singles were all Top 10 hits. Aldean made history with his 2013 Night Train Tour, holding the first-ever concert at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium and becoming the first country artist to headline (and sell out) Fenway Park in Boston, Mass. His 2014 release, “Burnin’ It Down,” was one of only three albums to earn platinum status that year.

Story Behind the Song: Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’

In early 2009, Andy Gibson, Paul Jenkins and Jason Sellers got together to write a song, with its title already in pocket: "Don't You Wanna Stay." The song they wrote that day ended up being recorded as a power duet by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson, for Aldean's My Kinda Party album -- and it became a Top 50 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a Top 20 song on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and a multi-week No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. It also became the best-selling country collaboration single in digital history, with over two million copies sold, a record it held until 2014.
