Jason Aldean plans May CD release

Tuesday, February 27, 2007 – Jason Aldean will release his second Broken Bow Records album, "Relentless," May 29. The album follows on the heels of his self-titled platinum debut, which spawned three chart-topping radio hits, "Hicktown" (number nine), "Why" (number one) and "Amarillo Sky" (number four).

The first single from the new CD is "Johnny Cash." The single, written by John Rich, Vicky McGehee and Rodney Clawson, is moving up the charts and sits at 33rd on the charts after 2 weeks, the highest chart position on impact date of Aldean's career thus far.

"I am anxious to get this new music out to all the fans who were so supportive of the first one," said Aldean. "The live crowds have been really responsive to 'Johnny Cash,' and I've got that butterfly feeling in my stomach that you get when you know you are on the verge of something exciting."

Other songs include a duet with Miranda Lambert on "Grown Woman," "Back In This Cigarette" and the swampy groove of "I Break Everything I Touch."

Aldean is currently part of the Rascal Flatts tour and will open for Dierks Bentley in March and April. The Georgia-native is also confirmed to play Nashville's LP Stadium during CMA Music Fest this June.

The opener,"Tattoos and Tequila," breaks it down into tattoos to remember, and tequila to forget. Within its booze for every »»»
Rearview Town CD review - Rearview Town
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 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 »»»
