Jason Aldean makes his first rodeo appearance on Saturday, March 6. Raised by his mother in Macon, Ga., country rocker Jason Aldean spent summers with his father in Florida. Aldean’s father introduced him to artists such as Kenny Rogers, the Gatlin Brothers and Alabama by taking him to concerts. Aldean picked up the guitar and learned to play by listening to the radio and reading chords his father had written down on paper. He finally got his big break when he signed with a record label in 2004.
