This week, Jason Aldean and the writers of his latest no. 1 song, “When She Says Baby,” Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, gathered at Nashville’s Pour House to celebrate the song’s success.

“We sat down that day to write a Jason Aldean song,” Hayslip said, explaining the song’s origin to the crowd. “I wanted to get on Jason’s Night Train album [and] I wrote a whole catalog of songs to get on there.”

And get on there it did, giving Jason Aldean his 13th no. 1 song as an artist.

I felt pretty good when I got here,” Jason Aldean said, “until I found out that everyone had more No. 1′s than I did.”
