Lon had just finished talking with co-host Luke Combs about Jason Aldean’s stadium show in Atlanta, when the phone rang. When Lon answered, it was none other than Jason himself. Jason said, “Hey Lon, what’s up, this is Jason Aldean, how’re you?” I couldn’t be better. “Well you COULD be better, cause I’m calling to congratulate you, you are the CMA Award winner for National Personality of the Year!” Lon said, “There are no words, oh my gosh!” Also in the studio was Lon’s co-host Luke Combs, who asked, What are you doing? “Me & Memphis are hangin’ out outside, and we’re about to go out for a ride in the truck. But I wanted to call Lon and congratulate him.”
This is actually Lon’s 9th award as National Personality of the Year, and it will be presented in a special ceremony prior to the televised CMA Awards show on Wednesday November 14.
