OFFSTAGE: Jason Aldean Song Ignites Major #TBT

Published on February 21, 2013 by CMT News

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

This is a Throwback Thursday in the very best way. Since Jason
Aldean
is releasing his song “1994″ — an ode to a bunch of big songs of ’90s country star Joe
Diffie
— he’s convincing fellow artists to share photos of themselves from
1994
. Even Aldean posted one of himself, saying “OK, guys: THIS is what I looked like in #1994. REAL cool, huh?” And God
love our favorite country artists for posting what could be semi-embarrassing shots of their decades-old photos. Like Luke
Bryan
in denim and more denim and a big ol’ white cowboy hat. And Keith
Urban
writing, “I was rockin’ the oversize thrift store jacket in #1994!!!!! — KU.” Tim
McGraw
took the easy way out, just tweeting the cover of his Not a Moment Too Soon album (with him in a sweet mullet
and a puffy black blouse) with the caption, “Hey @Jason Aldean, check out this shirt man, that was happenin’ in 1994.” But
the best one has to be Dierks Bentley as a teenager with Billy Idol
posters on his bedroom wall. “Embarrassing! I’ll dig around for the ones of spiked hair and parachute pants,” Bentley promised.
Carrie Underwood hasn’t posted one yet because she tweeted that
she was only 11, so she says it wouldn’t be very interesting. “I will look for one, though,” she said. Who would you like
to see from 1994? I’d like to see John Michael Montgomery,
whose “I Swear” won all the big awards that year. And Lauren Alaina,
who was born that year. And, of course, Joe Diffie. “Joe Diffie was rocking a sick mullet, and he was hotter than ever …
just putting out monster hit after monster hit,” Aldean said of the year. And of the song, “It totally takes me back to those
days, and it makes me smile every time I hear it.”
