Jason Aldean, Relentless Lives and careers have tipping points, days when investments pay off and when a bunch of scattered puzzle pieces suddenly fit together.

Jason Aldean doesn’t have to think long when asked to call up his top game changing moment of 2006.“We were playing a show in Portland, Oregon. It was a little club, just an acoustic show,” says the Macon, Georgia native. “‘Hicktown’(Aldean’s first single) had been doing okay. It was probably 25 on the chart or something.

The club was basically sold out. And we went into ‘Hicktown,’ and the place just went crazy.”“Hicktown,” propelled by a spanking beat and a girls-gone-hillbilly-wild video, would go Top 10 before long, but that’s the night it found its place in the full-roar, sing-along party that is Jason Aldean’s groove.

“We couldn’t even hear ourselves for people singing to us,” he recalls. “And that was the first time when I got the feeling that we had a hit.We had had pretty decent crowds at our shows, but it seems like from that show on things turned a corner.

You get that kind of feedback and it hits you that you may end up having a career.” A year after that show, the whole career thing looks better than ever.At a time when new artists in country have struggled to be heard, Aldean broke through a crowded field, capturing the Academy of Country Music Award for Top New Male Vocalist and earning a gold album just 12 weeks after his debut’s release.

Aldean followed up “Hicktown” with “Why,” a fist-to-the-heart ballad that rang the bell at No. 1 on radio and CMT.
