The Song Remembers When: Jason Aldean – “Got What I Got”

We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…

In October 2020, Jason Aldean added to his list of number one hits as “Got What I Got” became his 22nd chart-topper. Although he didn’t write it, Jason felt the song was tailor made for him and described his life to a T.

The songwriters behind “Got What I Got” are Michael Tyler, Alex Palmer, and Thomas Archer. And, the writing of the song all got started during one of Alex’s visits to Nashville. Thomas called the L.A.-based writer up to set up a session between him and Michael. Thomas had the idea, while Alex brought in the track which the three guys wrote around. It was finished in less than an hour.

According to Jason, “Got What I Got” is his wife Brittany’s favorite song from his album 9. And, fans sure dug it, too!
