OFFSTAGE: Jason Aldean: Magazine Guy and Popcorn Lover

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

The last book Jason Aldean read? He couldn’t really say. But in the recent issue of People magazine, he admits he’s more of a magazine guy anyway. “When I’m standing in line at the grocery store, I’m kind of a sucker for buying whatever has a cover I’m interested in. I like reading about actual facts,” he said. And what might he be buying at the grocery store? I’m gonna go with popcorn. Because he also told the magazine that’s what he cooks in the microwave. “I’m a popcorn lover, and at night if I’m watching a game, I’ll throw in a bag and snack on it. I can cook popcorn in the microwave like nobody’s business.” Aldean also talked about recent purchases he’s made (stabilizers and a sight to trick out his hunting bow) and things he’s played with his kids (Legos with his 5-year-old daughter).
