Jason Aldean is in Las Vegas for this Sunday's ACM Awards, where he's up for Entertainer of the Year. He's not going to spend his time leading up to the show worrying if he'll win that trophy or not.
"I quit thinking about awards shows, like, before I got there a long time ago," Jason says. "Now, I just kind of show up with the mentality of 'I'm gonna show up and whatever happens, happens, and I'm gonna have fun while I'm there.'"
It probably helps that Jason already has a few ACM Awards on the mantle back home in Nashville. While he would like to win Entertainer of the Year at some point in his career, Jason says, "You put too much hope into it, and you go, 'Yes, well I think this is our year.' Then you get there, and it doesn't happen, and then you're depressed for a year."
He adds, "I just kind of quit doing that stuff altogether."
Look for Jason to perform on the 48th Annual ACM Awards Sunday night at 8 Eastern on CBS.
