– 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.
