Little Sweet Somethin'

Old Boots, New Dirt

October 7th, 2014

It’s the weekend and the singer’s at a party with a jug of ‘feel good’ going around but there’s one thing missing – “a sweet little somethin”. But then he see’s here – “Standing there red hot, tied up little tank top/Looking like you must be straight out of the country/Honey, what I wouldn't do for a sweet little somethin' like you."

  • Before going to work during the day, his dad would map out guitar chords on notebook paper to show Aldean where to place his fingers to play the chords. Aldean sat and practiced all day while his dad was at work. When his dad got home, he got out his own guitar and they played together. Soon, after hearing a song only a few times, he could play it.
  • Aldean chose his stage name, as a result of his name "Jason Williams" sounding too generic, along with the fact that the name was commonly associated with basketball as there were three players with the same name at the time his music career began. He changed the spelling of his middle name, Aldine, to come up with the name Aldean.
  • Along with current Major League Baseball (MLB) players Adam LaRoche and Ryan Langerhans, former MLB players Chipper Jones and Tombo Martin, Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty, and fellow country singer Luke Bryan, Aldean owns a hunting company called Buck Commander.
