Aldean stopped by The Bobby Bones Show Friday (Apr. 22) in support of Georgia, the second half of his double album, Macon, Georgia. Aldean was wearing a Rolex watch during the interview, which prompted questions from Bones.
“Which way is it?” Bones asked Aldean about his new Brantley Gilbert collaboration. “Rolex On A Redneck,” Aldean said, clarifying confusion about the song’s title.
“Is that a Rolex right now?” Bones gestured toward Aldean’s wrist. “Yeah,” Aldean responded, laughing. “Thanks for bringing that up.
“I normally wouldn’t address it,” Bones explained. “You come in wearing cool stuff.”
Aldean then removed the watch from his wrist and proceeded to tease where it came from.
“Let me read [the engraving on the back of the watch]” so we know you’re not messing with us,” Bones said as Aldean passed him the watch.
“Is it Luke?” He asked.
“No, it’s not Luke,” Aldean responded. “Luke’s too cheap.”
Bones went on to read the watch’s engraving and revealed that the gift came from none other than Garth Brooks.
Aldean explained that Brooks bought him the gift as a thank you when he asked Aldean to join him on stage at a show at Nashville’s Ascend Ampitheater.
“Garth is the best gift giver ever,” Aldean said.
Jason Aldean And Luke Bryan Previously Shared The Stage Together
Aldean and Brooks previously sang at Ascend Ampitheater back in 2016 in honor of Brooks’ seventh Diamond Award, according to Country Rebel. The pair joined forces on Brooks’ song “Much Too Young.”
Aldean has covered the song during past performances, including with Luke Bryan.
Alden also shared Brooks’ impact during an interview with One Country.
“Obviously anybody that’s sorta my age and plays music, country music, I mean we grew up and Garth was the guy,” Aldean said. “I mean, it didn’t get any bigger. In addition, Aldean shared that Brooks “opened the door” for artists like him, who aren’t the “most traditional country acts.”
Aldean released the first half of his double album, Macon in November 2021.
In releasing the second half, Georgia on Friday, Aldean shared that album track, “Your Mama,” a song dedicated to his son, Memphis is the most “personal” song he’s “ever recorded.”
