"This I Gotta See"

There are a few noteworthy covers that Aldean has recorded over the years that didn't rank on the music charts, but are nonetheless impressive, such as his version of this Andy Griggs ballad from 2004.

"Asphalt Cowboy"

Blake Shelton originated this ode to long haul truckers and their lonely life on the road, which was penned by Jeff Stevens and Kenny West. on his 2003 album The Dreamer. Two years later, Aldean covered the song on his 2005 self-titled debut, and the singer made it his own by offering a slightly faster tempo and higher-pitched vocals. He's even branded an official Resistol cowboy hat with the name of the song.
