Moote, Kimmie, and Otis talked with Georgia Country's biggest star of 2023 Jason Aldean. He just released his 11th studio album "Highway Desperado". Aldean talks about the highlight of this entire year, hitting the top of the Billboard all genres chart for the 1st time ever, his disappointment in MLB and Braves, plus plays a game with us about his home State Of Georgia.
Aldean said despite all of the success of "Try That In A Small Town", the real highlight of his year was bringing Toby Keith on stage to preform with him on Oklahoma City. Aldean said "it was just one of those special nights that I won't forget for forever!"
He was at Lakewood Amphitheater this past August and said it's always fun coming back home and "seeing all the baseball players I've met through the years, they all come out to that show." Aldean isn't real happy his Braves got shut out of the playoffs early saying, "I'm not a big fan of how they do the playoff stuff. I mean I liked it better when the wild card was one game." He is still believes in his UGA Bulldogs to grab a three-peat for Championships this year though. "Till someone knocks them off the thrown, they're who everybody's gunning for".
