Having just wrapped his first full and very successful headlining tour, he’s prepared to leverage that momentum with the release of his highly anticipated third album, Wide Open, due out April 7.
The Macon, Georgia native wrapped up 2008 on a high note. Aldean’s debut of “She’s Country,” the first single off the forthcoming CD and now the fastest-rising single of his carreer to date, was introduced with a lights-out performance on the CMA Awards in November.
Upon hearing the lyrics and energy in the demo of “She’s Country,” Aldean knew it would be a great fit for his live show. “When we got in the studio and played it for the first time, it flew out of the speakers!” he exclaims.Written as a southern shout-out to all the country girls, the song champions the big guitars and solid backbeat that form the nucleus of Aldean’s signature sound. It also gives fans a taste of what lies in store on the rest of the album.
As the title implies, Wide Open celebrates the unlimited opportunities life offers, while recognizing the all-too-familiar speed bumps along the way.
“Wide Open is the only way I know how to live,” explains Aldean. “I don’t do anything half-ass, and you never have to guess on where I stand on things. I’m pretty much an open book. I understand there may be hitches along the way, but if I’m in, I’m in no matter what.”
Aldean kicks in to the title track with a heavy percussive drone of dual guitars riffing respectively in stereo. The song tells the story of a young waitress biding her time at a diner until she comes up with a better plan.
Jason also plays a TSF48C and EF508KC
