Jason Aldean Talks About Getting Replaced By Younger Artists

With artists such as Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, and Oliver Anthony making a splash in the country music industry, is Jason Aldean worried about getting pushed out?

The Los Angeles Times did a profile on Aldean earlier this week and asked just that.

The Times asked about the “generational shift” happening as the younger artists dominate the charts. However, Jason Aldean thinks there’s room for everyone.

“Just kind of comes with the territory. But here we, 18 years in, just came off of selling out a tour. So I don’t think about it in terms of getting phased out,” Aldean said about the shift.

He went on to say that he “loves” the artists coming up, namechecking Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, and Parker McCollum.

However, Jason Aldean admits his days are numbered.

“At some point, the fans will tell us, “OK, your days at country radio are over.” But I don’t see it happening anytime in the next couple of years.” – Jason Aldean, Los Angeles Times.

He also addressed the male-dominated country music industry. Aldean said, “Male artists seem to have dominated the genre a little bit over the last however many years. But you also have some great female acts: Carrie [Underwood] and Miranda [Lambert], and Carly Pearce is coming up now.”
