Music Regram: Jason Aldean Hangs With Garth Brooks
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:46:54
Jason Aldean is the king of bro country, which is a subgenre of country that caters to dudes and frat boys. But still, Aldean has earned the respect of his elders, so to speak, in terms of iconic country artists. Garth Brooks has espoused his fandom of Aldean, calling him "muscle country" but also labeling him "a talent," and since Brooks is a legend, those words shape up to be quite a compliment for Aldean.
Aldean posed with his new wife, the blonde former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr, who looked gorgeous in a hot pink dress, along with Mr. Books while at the ACMs earlier this week.
It's the old guard and the new in country music, and there is nothing wrong with country music evolving or with the legends throwing their support at the new breed. Aldean is not exactly new, and his star has been on the rise for years, but Brooks ascended to the top of the country mountain before retreating on his own terms. And Aldean is on his way up to that same summit.
That's one helluva sandwich at the ACMs.
