Jason Aldean's life and career are profiled in a new episode of the music documentary series Behind the Music on Paramount+. The hour-long episode, released in late November, chronicles Aldean's rise to fame and the struggles he encountered along the way.

One of those struggles was getting his career off the ground in the first place. In a preview video, Aldean alludes that his unique country-rock style was a problem at the beginning of his career. He also says that he considered choosing another path other than music to ensure the security of his family.

"If I gave up on all this, could I give my family a better life?" Aldean questions in the trailer.
