This is what he had to say on his Facebook.
Hey Guys – I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip web sites.The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support
I don't usually care about this stuff, but the comments made about his transgression just floored me. So many fans that were disappointed in him because of this and they say they'll stop buying his music!
Let's go back in time shall we to the mid-60s. John Lennon shacks up with Yoko Ono while married to Cynthia who is also the mother of his son, Julian. OMG! I won't listen to the Beatles cos John cheated on his wife?
Now I'm in no way comparing the music of Mr. Lennon with Mr. Aldean or even the result of the affair. In John's case, he loved Yoko...in Jason's case...he was likely drunk and stupid. But god, if we abandoned talented artists because they screwed up in their personal lives, well there wouldn't be anyone making music or movies.
I can't believe how much attention this has received...We are a sad lot of people...aren't we?
