While most people know she’s the wife to one of the biggest names in country music, few know Brittany Aldean once pursued a singing career herself.
Prior to meeting husband Jason Aldean, Brittany auditioned for American Idol, the beautiful blonde quickly winning over judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson with her gorgeous voice. At her 2012 audition, the male judges were immediately taken by her outward appearance, however, they were absolutely blown away when she began to sing.
“I think that’s good, I like it,” said Tyler following her audition to the tune of Joss Stone’s “Spoiled.” “You’re on pitch and you’re good-looking.”
While she didn’t earn a yes from judge Jennifer Lopez, Brittany’s audition was enough to earn her the “Golden Ticket” to Hollywood.
At the time of her audition, Brittany was an NBA dancer for North Carolina team, the Charlotte Hornets. Flash forward to 2017, and Brittany is raising her first child, Memphis Williams Aldean, with her talented husband.
“Spoiled” was written by Stone and released off her second studio album, Mind Body & Soul, in 2004.
