Throwback Jam: Jason Aldean’s “Laughed Until We Cried”

By Aaron Wagner

Even with all of his hits, I still think that this song is one of Jason Aldean’s best songs he’s ever released.

Released in August of 2007, “Laughed Until We Cried” was his fifth single released as an artist. Written by Kelly Lovelace (“All American Girl”, “Girls Lie Too”, “He Didn’t Have to Be”) and Ashley Gorley (“You Should Be Here”, “Marry Me”, “Crash My Party” and about a million other smash hits) this song from Jason Aldean peaked at #6 on the country charts.

“Laughed Until We Cried” is one of those songs that makes country music so special. It’s a feel good song in the lyrics set over the mid-to-slow ballad of the production, creating this impactful song for listeners. It’s a bit nostalgic too as chances are when you hear this song, it’ll take you back to some great memories – football practice, bonfires, family holidays, college, falling in love – you name it.

Here’s a video of Ashley Gorley, one of the songwriters, singing this at a writers round in Nashville.
