I Ain't Ready to Quit

Album: My Kinda Party (2010)
  • This is a track from My Kinda Party, the fourth studio album released by American Country music artist Jason Aldean. The song finds the protagonist enjoying his vices and his lover too much to give either up.
  • The track was co-written by Thomas Rhett Akins, the son of Country songwriter Rhett Akins ("All About Tonight", "The Shape I'm In", "Farmer's Daughter"). This was the junior Akins' first songwriting credit for a major label artist.

    He told Billboard magazine the cut came at a pivotal time. "I would say that was a huge turning point in my life," said Akins. "I'd been writing songs for about five or six months pretty hard, and I was trying to balance songwriting and school - which was a pretty hard task. I wrote it with two other guys who had never had a cut, so for three no name writers to get our first cut on the Album of the Year was an incredible experience as an amateur songwriter."
