Rob Kim/Getty ImagesJason Aldean and Luke Bryan are huge University of Georgia fans and love tailgating.Southern Living magazine, in this month's issue, is asking its readers who has the best college football tailgating in the South.
Georgia, which has about 100,000 tailgaters for every home game, is joined by Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma and Tennessee in the "Powerhouse" category.
Country stars Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan said there is no debate: It's all Georgia Bulldogs.
"Tailgating is college football. It's Saturdays grilling, drinking beer, chips and friends," said Aldean, who was born in Georgia and tries to attend as many games as he can. "In the Southeast, football is religion. It's an excitement unlike anything else."
Bryan graduated from Georgia Southern University but still considers himself a University of Georgia fan.
"There is nothing better than sitting in a parking lot drinking beer," the country singer said. "The leaves start changing colors. You know that fall is here. That's why I love tailgating."
