It was a big night for country music at the 2015 CMT Music Awards! Jason Aldean totally owned the stage with a performance of his song ‘Tonight Looks Good On You,’ and got us so pumped!
The CMT Music Awards were full of amazing country music performances — and that includes one from Jason Aldean! The Georgia native hit the stage in Nashville to perform his hit “Tonight Looks Good On You,” and totally brought the crowd to their feet.
Taking a break from his huge summer tour, Jason killed it while singing his awesome hit. It was a big night for the country superstar, too, as he was also nominated for Video Of The Year and Male Video Of The Year for his song “Burnin’ It Down.” But if he was nervous or anxious, he definitely didn’t show it!
Wearing a blue button down shirt and ripped blue jeans, along with his signature cowboy hat, of course, Jason opened up his performance on a dark stage, before lighting things up once he hit the more upbeat chorus of the tune. And his wife, Brittany Kerr, was too adorable mouthing along all the words in the audience!
Before the show, Jason walked the red carpet, and teased his upcoming performance. “You want it to be loose and fun and just have a good time with it,” he explained. A lot of award shows can be uptight and stiff, but this isn’t one of those.” And that’s just what he did with the carefree set!
Meanwhile, in the video for the song, Jason took a step outside his comfort zone and actually did some acting — something he swore in the past that he’d never do! “I was in a movie called Sweetwater which made me a little more comfortable with acting,” he admitted. “Luckily, [in the video], I only had to act for a few seconds, but it was fun to step outside what I normally do in a video and kind of have fun with it and let the fans see me in a different light.”
The CMT Awards have been a big night for Jason in the past — he confirmed his relationship with his former mistress, Brittany , at the show in 2014 by walking with her on the red carpet. They wound up getting engaged just over three months later, and tied the knot in March. Brittany, of course, was by Jason’s side at the awards show again this year, too — so cute!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Jason’s performance?
