It's interesting to hear artists talk about "the song that got away." They could've recorded it, but didn't for some reason . . . and then it became a huge hit for someone else.
For JASON ALDEAN, that song was Luke Bryan's "Drunk On You". Jason heard it first but passed on it because he was looking for a specific kind of sound to finish an album he was doing. He liked the song, but it just didn't fit.
The big regret came a little later.
Quote, "Luke came over and played me some songs off his record and that was one of them and I was like 'ughhh.' It went on to be a big ole hit for him. [But] I believe songs land where they're supposed to land."
