I’ve been on a bit of an old-school Jason Aldean kick lately.
We’re talking 2005 self-titled album Jason Aldean with songs like “Hicktown,” “Amarillo Sky,” which still slaps, “Why,” and then fast forward to 2009’s Wide Open record and you have “The Truth.”
Written by Brett James and Ashley Monroe, “The Truth” is arguably Jason Aldean’s best song, and although he had been cranking out hits for some time by then, it was right around 2009 when his career really turned the corner. The award show nominations started piling up after that, and by the time My Kinda Party rolled around, Aldean was a full-fledged superstar.
That being said, “The Truth” will always be a favorite of mine, a favorite of most Aldean fans, and a favorite of Jon Langston, who recently released his own acoustic cover of the number one single.
