Jason Aldean celebrates with Music Row his latest number 1, “The Truth.”
Jason Aldean‘s latest NO. 1 single,” The Truth,” co-written by Ashley Monroe was celebrated on Monday at BMI headquarters in Nashville. Arriving in his usual checkered shirt, worn-out looking jeans, and a baseball cap Aldean helped celebrate the success of Monroe’s first chart-topper.Jason first heard the demo of “The Truth” in his car, and decided immediately that he wanted to record it. “From day one,” Aldean said, “it was my favorite song on the record.”
Monroe began her musical career at Dollywood Theme Park singing five times a week. After recording an album that never got released due to label changes, Monroe decided to focus on her song writing skills. Ree Guyer Buchanan’s publishing company signed Monroe at the age of 17. Monroe thanked her mother and several others for assisting her to getting to this point.
“Jason, it still gives me a chill. Sometimes I forget I wrote it, and I just sing along.” Monroe said. Kudos to Jason and Ashley.Country Music Photo Gallery
