Aldean announces "9"
Monday, September 9, 2019
– Jason Aldean announced today that he would release his next album, "9," on Nov. 22 on Broken Bow.
"Early on I always thought if we ever got to make nine albums, I'm going to call it '9.' It was my baseball number growing up, and it's just kind of always been my lucky number," said Aldean. "I remember cutting the first album and thinking 'that's forever away,' and now here we are. I don't know, it's really special we made it this far - so, it's more for me than anybody else - but, it means a lot."
Aldean offers fans a preview of the new album today with the release of four of its tracks. "Blame It On You," "I Don't Drink Anymore," "Keep It Small Town" and the lead single "We Back."
"When I came into country music and made my mark, it was with a banger," Aldean adds. "But we haven't put out a lot of that stuff over the last couple years. So we got this song and to me it just says what it says: 'Thought we were gone, but you're wrong - now it's on.'"
Aldean's last album was "Rearview Town," which came out in April 2018.

There's no confusion it's a guy in the "Camouflage Hat," for example. Also, nothing is said or done without also washing it down with alcohol. The opener,"Tattoos and Tequila," breaks it down into tattoos to remember, and tequila to forget.

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 ...
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 ...
