Episode Description

Jason Aldean’s appeal to everyday small-town Americans catapulted him to country music superstardom, but that success didn’t come overnight. He faced setback after setback before securing a record deal and releasing a string of hits. Aldean was onstage when shots rang out and dozens were killed at a Las Vegas music festival in October 2017. He tells BREAKING BIG host Carlos Watson that the tragedy reminded him that life is short, success is a gift, and the best thing he can do is keep performing and giving his fans the shows they deserve.
