Jason Aldean Responds to Hank Jr.’s Departure at CMT Taping

“I’m still a huge fan,” says Jason.

During CMT’s Artists of the Year taping on Tuesday (Nov. 29), honoree Jason Aldean and Hank Williams Jr. were slated to perform Jason’s “Tattoos on This Town” together. However, as CountryWeekly.com previously reported, Hank Jr. left the stage after one take, saying, “It didn’t sound right. I didn’t want to disrespect him.”

Now, Jason gives his take on the situation. “I think when it comes to Hank, the only thing that you can predict about Hank is that he’s unpredictable,” Jason tells HitFix. “I’m still a huge fan. He’s one of my idols, one of the guys that I grew up listening to. I’m a huge fan and, you know, it was a little weird, but it’s Hank Jr., what are you going to say?”

Jason recently earned three nominations for the upcoming Grammy Awards, including Best Country Album for My Kinda Party, Best Country Solo Performance for “Dirt Road Anthem” and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson. The Grammy Awards will be held Feb. 12 at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
