Jason Aldean, who was awarded Top New Male Vocalist at 2006 Academy of Country Music Awards, is ready to release his third studio album "Wide Open". Planning to drop it in U.S. on April 7, he is once again working with producer Michael Knox, who was also involved in the making of Jason's two previous albums.
"I feel like with my first two albums, I was trying to dial in who I was as an artist and what my fans liked and expected to hear from me," Jason has commented on his new album. "Four years into it, I think understand that now, and I'm really just starting to hit my stride. I'm excited to see what happens the next few weeks and months because I'm really proud of the new album."
His first single off the upcoming record is titled "She's Country". Narrating various females from different rural places in America, the track is penned by the former vocalist of Western Flyer, Danny Myrick, along with songwriter Bridgette Tatum.
The song has been debuted during a gala ceremony of Country Music Association Awards back in November 2008. It peaked at number 6 on Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and landed at number 41 on Billboard Hot 100.
On top of that, a music video for the track climbed to number 18 on Top 20 Country Countdown chart since making its way out in February. The Wes Edwards-directed video shows Jason performing the song in his concerts and during his touring.
Most recently, Jason hit MGM Grand Garden Arena, presenting an award at the 44th Annual ACM Awards on April 5. After that, he will head up to New York, Texas, Kansas and Ohio for a series of live shows. Details on his tour dates can be checked on his MySpace.
