Jason Aldine Williams was an early lover of country music, learning to play guitar from his dad during summers spent together. With complete support and help from his parents, Jason wanted to pursue a career in music. Not to be confused with another artist of the same name, Jason Williams changed his name to Jason Aldean. After signing two failed record deals, Jason finally found his home with Broken Bow Records. There Jason kickstarted his career with his self-titled debut album, featuring his first No. 1 hit “Why,” “Hicktown” and “Amarillo Sky.” Jason has two daughters from his first marriage to Jessica Usery, whom he divorced in 2013. In 2015, he married Brittany Kerr and the couple welcomed their first child and Jason’s first son, Memphis Aldean Williams, on Dec. 1, 2017.
