Jason Aldean opens up about getting back on the road and more in a new podcast interview. And in what might be a disappointment to some fans, the country star shuts down rumors about a new reality show.
Speaking with The Ty Bentli Show on Apple Music Country, Aldean addressed a hard-to-kill rumor going around, that he and wife Brittany are on the cast of an upcoming Real Housewives of Nashville show. The gossip reportedly started back in April as another country star, Jana Kramer, told fans about her experience with the popular TV franchise, and since then they’ve have kept swirling – despite Brittany’s denial. She used Instagram Stories to directly deny the claims on April 12, and now Aldean has confirmed they won’t take part… officially anyway.
Apparently, the rumors didn’t come out of nowhere.
“Well, it was rumored that we were going to be a part of this, some reality TV show that’s happening here in Nashville. And to be honest, we talked to them about it,” Aldean admits. “They were interested in having us on the show, and I think Britt and I just kind of talked, and for us personally, it wasn’t the right kind of thing.”
Aldean goes on to say filming a reality show is a big commitment – and it comes with a hefty price. There’s no telling what could come from the process, so he and Brittany opted out. But fans might still see them on the show.
“Our life is pretty good. I feel like a lot of times those shows are full of drama, and things that I didn’t really want to bring into our life,” he explains. “And also, just have people in our house all the time. So we got some friends of ours that are part of it, we’ll probably be popping in and out on some things I’m sure just by association. But the nice thing is we can always leave and go back home and get away from it when we want to, so it’s kind of the best of both worlds.”
Jason Aldean also spends his time on the show discussing his return to the stage, and especially what it was like to perform his first shows in 14 months for a recent live audience at the Bonnaroo Farm in Manchester, Tennessee. The hit maker also revealed his secrets for picking opening acts, since they all seem to become big names afterward.
