To Jason Aldean, Relentless, which is the title of his latest album, could also describe his pursuit of country music stardom. Jason tells Dial-Global he can be quite stubborn, but he believes you have to be in order to succeed in such a competitive business.
“I think that if you’re one of those people that takes no for an answer and just says, ‘Okay, well, I guess I just ain’t cut out for it,’ you’re probably not,” he says. “I mean, it was very frustrating, don’t get me wrong, but at the same time, I wasn’t willing to take no for an answer either. I just felt like if somebody would give me a shot at it then we had something to offer that was gonna hopefully work.”
Jason says you never know if you can succeed until you get the chance to try. “If I got the chance and failed, then I could live with that,” he says. “But not ever knowing, that was the part that was really kind of nerve-racking for me.”
Jason’s stubborn nature seems to still be working out well for him. His current single, “Johnny Cash,” is in the Top 10 and continues to climb.
