OFFSTAGE: Jason Aldean Found Quiet Under "Amarillo Sky"

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

It’s hard to believe Jason Aldean when
he says there was a time when people didn’t know the words to all his hit songs, especially now that he’s on the verge of
playing stadiums. But he told CMT Radio that while his live shows now are a true test of a new tune, it wasn’t always that
way.

“I mean, I remember us playing ‘Amarillo Sky’ before
that was a single and people couldn’t care less,” he said of his 2006 hit. (By the way, that song’s four writers include Big Rich’s Big Kenny
and John Rich.) Aldean certainly wasn’t talking about me, because I knew
the words to “Amarillo Sky,” “Why” and his debut song “Hicktown”
before I ever saw him in concert.

Aldean went on to say, “Then, once it was a single and people got a chance to hear
it and knew the words, then all the sudden it was a big hit. But then, we’ve had things like ‘She’s
Country’
and ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ that were not even hits
yet, we played it and people freaked out.”
