Jason Aldean Says He’ll Throw Up If The Duck Dynasty Christmas Album Goes Platinum

Jason Aldean Says He’ll Throw Up If The Duck Dynasty Christmas Album Goes Platinum

The Robertsons of  Ducky Dynasty released their  Christmas album this week  called  Duck the Halls.  Willie says when he was first approached with the idea of doing the album he wasn’t sure which direction it was going to go in.  “I didn’t know if it would just be a big joke and it would be funny which was fine with me, or it actually may be halfway decent. And man, once we got into doing it, it was amazing… it turned out pretty special. By the end, I was like, ’Wow, we did pretty good.”

One guy who’s not exactly thrilled about Willie and The Robertson family Christmas album is Jason Aldean.  He thinks Missy Robertson is about the only one in that family that can carry a tune.  In all seriousness, Jason is thrilled for the Robertson family’s success because he says they’re really great people, but in the spirit of giving his good buddy Willie a hard time he says, “I told Willie, ‘Man, I’ve been a musician my whole life, you get a TV show, you come to town and get a record deal … you’ve got people trying to throw record deals at you.  I’ve spent years here trying to get one.’  I’m like, ‘You’re gonna release a Christmas album and it’s gonna go ten times platinum.  It’s gonna sell more records than me and Luke combined.  It’s like man, this is crazy.’”

While he’s happy to see the family doing well Jason says, “Now do I think they’re musicians?  No.  Not even a little bit.  However, I think that they’re so hot right now I think that it doesn’t matter.  They could put out anything and it would probably sell a gazillion copies, so we’ll see.  It’s gonna make me nauseous if I look up and Willie Robertson has a platinum record hanging on his wall.  It’s gonna make me want to throw up.”
