When he was three years old, his parents separated, and he was primarily raised by his mother in Macon but would spend summers with his father in Homestead, Florida. He learned how to play the guitar by practicing while his father worked, and the two would play together when his father returned home in the evenings. Both of his parents encouraged him to pursue his passion for music. He had his eyes set on becoming a country music singer by age fourteen and started performing in local talent contests and fairs. He formed a band the next year, and they continued to perform together throughout high school. After graduating high school and with the help of his father, Aldean and his band performed at small venues and clubs throughout the southeast.

After signing in late 1998, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee. The label subsequently dropped him, so he signed a deal with another record label that also later dropped him. He spent four disappointing years in Nashville, and by 2004, he was ready to return to Georgia but gave himself six more months to try to sign with a label. A couple of of months later, he was offered a deal with Broken Arrow Records. He released his self-titled debut album in July of 2005.
