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
4. Why
5. Big Green Tractor
6. On My Highway
7. Johnny Cash
8. Relentless
`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
15. Hicktown

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

Old Boots, New Dirt CD review - 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 »»»
Night Train CD review - Night Train
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 »»»
My Kinda Party CD review - My Kinda Party
Jason Aldean covers plenty of familiar ground in his latest offering, moving with ease from tanned-leg Georgia dreams to square cornfields to a fairly even mix of church pews and bar stools. If anything, the album is a bit too seamless, one song melding into the next, the words on many evaporating into thin air. But it all adds up to a very good time - exactly what you'd hope for with an album with "party" in its title. Don't Wanna Stay , a duet with Kelly Clarkson (of all »»»
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: Girls with Guitars show voices – With the official departure of Taylor Swift from the genre, country music is eager to find replacement star power. Pittsburgh's annual Girls with Guitars show is proving to be a nebula. This year's crop of artists featured former "The Voice" contestants (one winner), a television star and some local flair. Texas cutie... »»»
Concert Review: Washburn, Fleck give reasons to be happy  – "I sing because I'm happy," sang Abigail Washburn toward the end of her show with fellow banjo picker (not to mention, husband) Bela Fleck in the closing number of the night "His Eye is on the Sparrow." Washburn had a lot of reason to be on this night in a beautiful setting at Harvard University. The two held court over two... »»»

Fullbright writes the "Songs" John Fullbright didn' grow up around musicians or like-minded songwriters in his little hometown of Bearden, Okla. You'd never know it, though, from his raw, stark, pure and honest songwriting that's drawn comparisons to Townes Van Zandt. His debut album, "From the Ground Up," was nominated for a 2013 Grammy as the Best Americana Album, catapulting him into the company of Bonnie Raitt, Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers and The Avett Brothers.... »»»

While No One Was Watching: Toasting 20 Years of Bloodshot Records CD review - While No One Was Watching: Toasting 20 Years of Bloodshot Records
It's a magnanimous record company indeed that celebrates its own 20th anniversary by inviting artists from other labels to join in the festivities. Then again, this is Chicago's Bloodshot Records after all, the insurgent outfit out of Chicago that's made its mark by booting tradition up the backside. Consequently, the 2-disc, 38-song set "While No One Was Watching: Toasting 20 Years of Bloodshot Records" puts a new spin on the usual catalogue compilation... »»»

After releasing his debut album in 1989, Garth Brooks released music almost every year until he announced his retirement in 2000. Since then, he has released repackaged hit collections, new music on "Scarecrow" and "The Lost Sessions" and last year's cover song collection "Blame it All on My Roots." Over the years, there have been live recordings, concert and music video collections. The country songwriter became a pop culture icon... »»»
A JOHNNYSWIM Christmas CD review - A JOHNNYSWIM Christmas
With a seven-song EP, the singer-songwriter duo, Johnnyswim, comprised of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez, proves how sometimes the best things really do come in small packages. The project opens with an acoustic, acoustic guitar-colored original called "Christmas Day," which gently lists quite a number of good things about Christmas day. Most of this album is secular, lyrically, with an exception with the devout "O Come All Ye Faithful." »»»
Blood Oranges in the Snow CD review - Blood Oranges in the Snow
Over The Rhine has never been lumped in with the alt.-country scene, even though many Americana fans have embraced the act. However, Eric Heywood's pedal steel guitar work - particularly on this album's title track, ought to be mighty appealing to country music fans. Also, the group's reverent cover of Merle Haggard's "If We Make It Through December," one of the best and saddest Christmas songs of all time, will also win the Ohio act points with country fans. »»»
