– Jason Aldean may have a great night job, but he gave it up - for one day anyway to be an Atlanta Brave.
There was no hope of Aldean making the home state team, but he did get a day of spring training with the Braves.
"I grew up with Atlanta Braves posters on my wall. You don't always get to live out your childhood fantasy, but I get a chance to do that," said Aldean who trades in his cowboy hat for a baseball cap in the season premiere of "Day Jobs" on Wednesday, April 4, 10 p.m. Eastern on Great American Country (GAC).
Aldean spent the day at the Braves spring training camp in Florida as part of his dream job experience. The premier episode of the second season of Day Jobs also features comedian Bill Engvall returning to his former job as a tour guide at Inner Space Cavern in Georgetown, Texas.
The second season of "Day Jobs" features stars willing to put in a full day's work in a job they held before making it big or in some cases, a job they've always dreamed about.
"My goal is to just go out there and do everything these guys do and see what it's like to be a player getting ready for the season, and I want them to jump down my throat if I do something wrong," Aldean said in the locker room.
"He's going to be really, really sore tomorrow," said Braves star Chipper Jones. "I'm glad he doesn't have a concert tomorrow because no way he'd be able to do some of the things he does."
