Jason Aldean is no stranger to award nominations, but he was still very happy to learn of his American Music Awards nomination for Favorite Male Artist - Country Tuesday. Jason said, "You just never know when that part of your career is gonna come to an end. I mean, you ain't gonna get nominated for those things forever."
Jason is up against his pal Luke Bryan , who is currently opening shows for him on the My Kinda Party tour. Things might get a little awkward between them in the weeks leading up to the AMAs on November 18 though.
"I've never won one of those. So, I'd love to have one," Jason says. He adds with a laugh, "If Luke gets one before I do, I'm gonna be pissed."
