Jason Aldean live DVD coming late August
Friday, July 24, 2009
– Jason Aldean will be "Wide Open Live & More" when his sold-out live concert DVD from a March show in Knoxville, Tenn. Is released Aug. 25.
The 15-song hi-definition DVD also includes interview footage with the Georgia-native in the 86-minute collection.
"This is the coolest thing we've ever done together as a band," said Aldean from Los Angeles. "The energy in Knoxville was off the charts, and it's just really special for us to have that night recorded. Now, people who might not be able to make it to one of the shows, but are curious to know what we do, can check it out too."
The song list on the DVD is:
1. Wide Open
2. I Break Everything I Touch
3. Amarillo Sky
5. Big Green Tractor
6. On My Highway
7. Johnny Cash
`0. You're The Love I Wanna Be In
11. Laughed Until We Cried
12. I Use What I Got
13. She's Country
14. Asphalt Cowboy
A tease of the live DVD will debut as the new music video for Aldean's current hit country love song Big Green Tractor beginning today on MySpace Music's homepage. The clip will also begin airing on video networks in the coming weeks.
Fans can catch Aldean headlining his Wide Open tour through the fall, as well as opening a handful of dates for Keith Urban. He will also tape an episode of E!'s highly rated late night talk show Chelsea Lately on Tuesday, July 28 and will perform on ABC's CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock on Aug. 31.

CD reviews for Jason Aldean
If you liked Jason Aldean's three previous number one albums, you'll like "Rearview Town." He sticks to the winning formula that has brought him past success. The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little time »»»
Jason Aldean is getting used to the view from the top. His last album "My Kinda Party" spawned 5 Top 10 singles and has charted for almost 2 years. Driven by rocking country coupled with rap and a power ballad, that album seemed to rise to the top of the charts organically. With his fifth release, "Night Train," he seems to be taking dead aim at the summit.
Aldean is at his best as a studly outlaw, but the majority of the material on "Night Train" is clichéd »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: These Eagles keep songs alive and well
The newly reconfigured Eagles lineup, which now includes Vince Gill and Deacon Frey in place of the late Glenn Frey, hasn't changed its set much since this modified grouping's debut at Dodger Stadium in 2017. Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better
Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
