OFFSTAGE: Jason Aldean Hooked on Instagram

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

It is so easy to get hooked. So I’m not surprised that Jason Aldean — the man, not the management team — has started posting all kinds of his own personal pictures on Instagram. Even classics, like him in a Tommy Hilfiger striped T-shirt and boy band hair with the caption, “This is what I looked like in 1994!!!!” Or him sitting at the American Idol judges’ table. Or him doing his hunting thing. There are a lot of those, actually. And I’m sure he’ll keep adding more and more, especially if he gets the hang of some of the Instagram filters which add a whole new level of artistry to the social media app. He reportedly started using the app when his daughters Keeley and Kendyl asked him to, and now he already has more than 18,000 followers. Yet Aldean is only following two people: Luke Bryan and someone named PhoenixSoulX311. See what he’s up to at @Jason___Aldean. (Yes, there are three underlines between his first and last name.)
