Product Description

Jason Aldean's first single 'Hicktown' which was co-written by Big Kenny & John Rich of Big & Rich has quickly become a favorite at Country Radio. This enhanced CD also includes the video for 'Hicktown' that was directed by Wes Edwards. Broken Bow. 2005.

Amazon.com

It's easy to see why newcomer Jason Aldean scored big right out of the box--"Hicktown," an anthem for the way-off-the-interstate nation, not only captures the pride and the humor of the blue-collar crowd ("Well, you can see the neighbor's butt crack nailing on his shingles"), but was written by John Rich and Big Kenny of Big & Rich (with Vicky McGehee). That might be a lucky break for this Georgian's debut, but Aldean managed to nail four other John Rich songs, including "You're the Love I Want to Be In," which the singer cowrote with Rich and McGehee. Strong songwriting rules throughout, whether the subject is dysfunctional relationships ("Why"), hurtin' hearts ("Even If I Wanted To"), lonely truckers ("Asphalt Cowboy"), or reassessing one's own life in the reflection of a passing hearse ("Good to Go"). Producer Michael Knox tailors Aldean's sound toward one thing--fitting in on the radio--which means he borrows from everybody: "Amarillo Sky" kicks off with a Celtic, Keith Urban-like intro, "Lonesome USA" recalls the gangly twang of "Guitar Town"-era Steve Earle, and the rocking drive of Big & Rich is everywhere. Though Aldean shows promise as a writer, he's no special shakes as a vocalist. But he brings a solid Everyman's tenor to play (think Kenny Chesney), and he sounds as if he's lived every word. Make room for another chart-topper. --Alanna Nash

By DanD VINE VOICE on July 30, 2005
Format: Audio CD
There are two things that help Jason Aldean stand out from his contemporary country/rock peers: the first is that he manages to put heart and soul into his voice, without coming off like a polished singer. The second is that he doesn't write his own stuff (save four songs he co-wrote). Most of this album was written by songwriters who have gained minor fame recently due to their edgy, alternative styles and materials: John Rich, Vicky McGehee, Rodney Clawson, David Lee Murphy, Kim Tribble, and Bobby Pinson (hell, even Chad Brock has a co-writing credit; nice to see some material from him).

Aldean takes these tunes and makes them his own. True, his rendition of "Asphalt Cowboy" falls short of Blake Shelton's recording on THE DREAMER, but then, Shelton is more of a vocalist than Aldean is. Aldean's voice is down-home and likeable; his attitude is present throughout, yet never fully expressed (thanks to some wonderful production by Michael Knox). He takes tunes such as "I Believe In Ghosts" and "Amarillo Sky" and makes them fascinating gems; few country boys will have trouble relating to "She Loved Me" and "Hicktown." "I'm Just a Man" is undeniably catchy; even the corny "You're the Love I Wanna Be In" comes off fresh and invigorating, thanks to Aldean's heartfelt performance.

With this album, Jason Aldean establishes himself as a formidible new force on the Nashville scene. He won't go kicking down doors...yet. But he will turn some heads, and catch radio's attention. He has the heart, the material, and the raw talent to make it his own way. We're gonna be hearing more from him on down the road, I guarantee it.

This album is outstanding. After being in Nashville for years, Aldean's finances were getting bad and he was about to move back home in Georgia. That was gonna be the case, until a producer met him in a club and was able to convince Jason that with enough work, they could get a record deal. Jason agreed, but promised to move back home in 6 months if a deal wasn't done. Luckily Broken Bow Records signed this guy. This CD is awesome. Every track is great and he has a strong voice. From fun songs like "Hicktown", to love songs like "Why", a lot of emotions are expressed in this album. This is a must for any country fan. You won't be disappointed.

I just purchased 2 more CD's of Jason Aldean and I have now about 2-3 of those CD's I feel are just outstanding songs. 2 other CD's I've purchased are good, but have average songs on them. This CD and the one he did back when he was nominated for the country artist award show with Blake Sheldon and Brad Paisley...think Brad took that home even though Blake was taking home a lot of trophies that year. Around that time period is when I started listening to Jason Aldean and was quite surprised at his voice. So if you want something new ... check his songs and Cd's out!

I LOVE this CD. Bought it Saturday (3/4) at Wal-Mart for $9.72, a great price. Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this CD. Got it mainly because of "Hicktown", but also because of the new song "Why" that's been on the radio. I was DEFINITELY not disappointed. I like EVERY song on the CD, though some a little more than others. My favorites are "Hicktown" (of course), "Why", "Lonesome USA", "Asphalt Cowboy", "I Believe in Ghosts", and some others I've forgotten currently. Great music, great CD. It makes it a lot easier as a newbie singer when you've got the likes of Big & Rich, David Lee Murphy, and Bobby Pinson co-writing for you!

I love all of Jason's Cd's. This was one I did not have so I just had to buy it and I am glad I did. Listening to this you can tell how much he has changed as an artist. Sometimes I prefer the older, sometimes the newer but this is a great CD to add to your collection.

I love the mature Jason Aldean. This is his earlier work and was good for then...but nothing like he is now. he gets better and better with age. This is great evidence of the development of a great musician;. Where he was then versus where he is now.
Today Jason Aldean has developed so much that I really can't listen to his earlier work, although it was good.. He should redo this one now with the same songs as these are great songs worth of redoing. Well I know have some of his earlier work and it's not too shabby.

I first bought this CD after I found myself singing the fun lyrics to "Hicktown" and "Why"... At this point, I can tell you I love every single song on this album, which is a rare find. I listen to it over and over and never get bored! My favorite songs besides the two already mentioned are "Amarillo Sky" and "Asphalt Cowboy", and in my opinion is better than Blake Shelton's version.

I was so happy to see Jason Aldean performing on this year's CMA awards because he has proven to me that he has a lot of talent and a lot of potential to go far. Buy this album - you definitely won't regret it!

I'm 71 yrs. old and I love Jason Aldean's music. Country music has improved so much since I was young. This music really makes me wish I was still young, so I could enjoy it a lot longer. Most people think I'm in my early 40's, but then I don't look my age. I feel like I should be in my 30's. Maybe it's because I totally enjoy rocking out to good music. All of Jason's music is so good you can't go wrong with any of it, esp. if you like him. It's great music for any age and I would highly recommend it to anyone. If I could give him 10 stars I WOULD. He THAT GOOD!!! Even better in concert.
