OFFSTAGE: Jason Aldean Is a Touring Addict

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

I know it’s just a saying, but it still makes me LOL when I hear Jason Aldean say that being on the road is “like being on crack.” But that’s what he said in a radio interview when he was trying to make the point that he’s really, really, really into what he does for a living. “I’ve been at home for a couple of months. I’m about to go nuts,” he admitted. “Being an entertainer is like being on crack. You go without it for a little bit and you start freaking out,” he said. “So I’m ready to get back out.” Luckily for Aldean and his die-hard fan base, his My Kinda Party tour kicks off this Friday (Jan. 21) in North Little Rock, Ark.
