Jason Aldean scored it big with “Burnin’ It Down.” The song has gone 1 for the 12th time and is featured on his new album, Old Boots, New Dirt.
But did you know this song was actually cowritten by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard? It was supposed to be a hit for the group, but they couldn’t release it for a another year.
Tyler Hubbard told ABC News Radio “The timing was tough on it. We were listening to it one day, and I think it was B.K. that said, ‘Hey dude, I think Jason would kill this song. We should try to give it to him, and at least let him hear it.’
And the next thing they knew, he was cutting it.
The duo praised Jason for his take on the song, and have since seen tremendous success on their own with the chart topping hit “Dirt” and latest single, “Sun Daze.”
They are currently special guests on Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour.
