Jason Aldean announces details of new album, 'Rearview Town'


Jason Aldean visited Atlanta earlier this week to announce his July 21 concert at SunTrust Park and the Macon native is continuing his busy week with new details about his eighth studio album, “Rearview Town.”

Due April 13, the 15-track album features Miranda Lambert on the song “Drowns the Whiskey” and finds Aldean hitting a bluesier note on “You Make it Easy.” Aldean worked with longtime producer Michael Knox on the release.

The album, Aldean said in a statement, is “about putting things behind you...things that have held you down...and looking ahead. When you look at my career and the personal experiences I’ve gone through, it really seemed like a fitting title for this record and it’s one of the best songs I’ve ever recorded. It was important to me to pick songs that have substance to them, I’m more conscious of that these days.”

Fans can pre-order the album now at any digital retailer and will receive an instant download of the title track.
