Jason Aldean sat down recently with The Washington Post to talk about fame, marriage, and most importantly, music.
He was asked his opinion on why female country singers are struggling to get their songs heard on the radio and his response has stirred up some controversy. Although he isn’t quite sure why the female singers are having a harder time, he does have a theory.
“I feel like a lot of times female singers, to me, when they’re singing – and I’ll probably kick myself for saying this – a lot of times, it just seems like I can’t distinguish one from the other sometimes if I just listen to them, you know?” Aldean said. “A lot of times they just sound really similar to me. And then you have some that come out like a Carrie [Underwood] or Miranda [Lambert] or somebody like that, that really has a different, distinctive sound to their voice, then it’s like, oh, okay, you can tell them apart all of a sudden. They go on to be obviously big stars, but I think it’s because you can distinguish between them.”
He also says, “Listening to country radio, you always have these labels that are putting out new acts and it’s like, you already don’t know who this person is. So what is going to make you remember them?”
In the interview, Aldean opens up about his own music and how he is glad is is an established artist, not having to break out in the extremely competitive country music world.
Aldean reveals his dislike of being named “King of the Bros,” and that there is more to him than just songs about “girls with long tan legs riding shotgun in my truck.”
