Jason Aldean “Let Your Boys Be Country”

Jason Aldean just announced his new radio single “Let Your Boys Be Country” off of his latest album “Highway Desperado”, and honestly, I really like it.

I know Jason has been the center of controversy after his last #1 single “Try That in a Small Town”, which,  growing up in a small town and living that lifestyle, I didn’t take offense to it, although I can see why some took it the wrong way. And I’m sure someone will have a problem with this song, too, as people who don’t know that life won’t exactly understand the meaning of it. That’s fine.  I really liked the song, as for me, it’s very relateable. Especially as I have a son of my own right now, and one day- hopefully soon- my husband and I will return to the family farm in West Tennessee and get to live the small town life once again. I want Brandon (my son) to grow up outside, with acres of land, to be able to roam and be free, the way my husband and I both grew up. My husband- an Officer in the US Army- and a true Country boy at heart- can’t wait to live the outdoor lifestyle with our son. There really is something to it. And that’s what I get out of this song.

I especially like the video. It makes me want to go home right now, and show Brandon the ropes of growing up on a farm in a small town. All in good time.

Growing up in a rural area was a blessing. I know there are some that make fun of that lifestyle, but in my 40+ years on this planet, and getting to see many sides of life, I have to say that there is something special and real about growing up in the country and I really can’t wait to get back to it.

I hope that my son will appreciate it as much as his father and I do. If not, that’s fine, too.

But I am excited to give him that opportunity.

Cheers to Country boys, and the Mamas that raise them!

Jason Aldean “Try That in a Small Town”


Jason Aldean just put out a new single, “Try That in a Small Town”, and I have a feeling it’s his next #1 hit.  Because it’s Jason Aldean, and no matter how generic a song is, if he sings it, it’s an automatic #1 at Country Radio (he and Luke Bryan have this in common), and also, because the content speaks to a majority of the Country demographic.  Having grown up in a small town (Henderson, TN- look it up, ya’ll), it spoke to me as well.  My husband and I both hail from small West Tennessee towns, and this song is spot on.  And honestly? It’s not a bad thing.  Life truly is different in the Country, and I really can’t wait to return one day. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been great to live in all kinds of parts of the US, and experience different ways to live, but small-town life on the farm will always be where my heart lies.

And good luck taking anyone’s guns in a small town.  Especially my husband’s!

Yep, small town life truly is different, and again, not a bad thing.  A lot of my “City Friends” hate on the lifestyle, but until you have truly lived it and experienced it, don’t judge, ok?

Except for mudding. I still can’t figure out why people think that’s fun?
