George Birge Almost Lost His Song To Jason Aldean: Here’s How
George Birge almost lost his song to Jason Aldean and he told Tampa Bay’s Hometown Morning Krewe before the Guitar Pull. So, George Birge and Colt Ford are good friends and got together to write “Mind on You,” along with Jaron Boyer and Michael Tyler. The gave it to Jason Aldean to record. Then the awkward phone call had to come. George wanted the song back to record, so he had to call Jason Aldean and ask for his song back. Luckily, Jason was cool and gave it back. The song is now in the Top 10 and could be George’s first #1 song. We hope that he gets it.

George got noticed on TikTok like so many others. Just two weeks after he posted “Beer Beer, Truck Truck” to TikTok, his video had reached nearly 3 million views and he grew his followers from less than 50 to 130,000. It also won over Rynnstar, who’s real name is Erynn Chambers. She has lots of followers and joked how country songs are just repetitious ditties about beer, trucks, and girls. George wanted to prove her wrong and he did just that.
Now he is signed to Records Nashville and released his first album.
