Five-time GRAMMY nominee Jason Aldean is once again vying for a trophy during “Music’s Biggest Night,” the upcoming 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards, however, the Georgia native says he won’t be attending the show.
In a recent interview with Music Mayhem, the “Trouble With A Heartbreak” singer revealed he’s sitting it out this year.
“I’m not going just simply for the fact that there are so many categories on that show that a lot of them aren’t even aired on TV,” Aldean explained. “They’ll kind of read them out before the show or whatever. And I could be wrong, but I don’t think they’re going to air that on TV, so I’m not going to go, but it was cool [to be nominated].”
Aldean is currently nominated for Best Country Duo/ Group Performance for “If I Didn’t Love You,” his multi-week, chart-topping duet with fellow country superstar, Carrie Underwood.
The Georgia native shared that winning a GRAMMY is definitely on his “bucket list,” especially after earning five nods throughout his career.
“Obviously, those nominations are really hard to get,” Aldean acknowledged. “And then on top of that, they’re even harder to win because it’s just, I don’t know, you’ll have somebody that’s maybe mainstream up against somebody that’s not, and sometimes the more underground [artist] will win. So it’s kind of all over the board a little bit.”

“If I Didn’t Love You” was a massive hit for the pair. Not only did it top the charts at country radio, but it also earned the title of Country Song of the Year at the recent iHeartRadio Music Awards and Single of the Year at the ACM Awards.
“I feel like this song’s been a really big one for us this year and we got as good a shot as anybody so we’ll see what happens,” Aldean continued, adding “Carrie must be the X-Factor” if they take home the award.
While Aldean won’t be attending this year’s GRAMMY Awards, Underwood will be there as she was recently announced to perform during the broadcast, airing live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on the CBS Television Network.
Jason Aldean is set to release GEORGIA, the second part of his double album, MACON, GEORGIA, on April 22.
The 34-city run kicks off on July 15 in Scranton, PA.
