Hardscrabble
So I have to admit that I have shied away from posting much (well any) country music over the years, purely out of ignorance and fear. Though my mother was raised in Texas and I have more relatives there than you can shake a stick at. So you could say that I have country and wide open spaces running deep in my veins, as too clearly does Jason Aldean. Raised in Macon Georgia, he got his start singing for the local VFW and was soon swept off to Music City (it exists) and later Nashville. He only found breakout success after being dropped by Warner Music and signing with independent label Broken Bow Records. And anyway, how can you not like a song about a big green tractor?

No
