Jason Aldean

Country megastar Jason Aldean returns to Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, OH for what is sure to be a helluva party on August 9!

His 2010 album, ‘My Kinda Party,’ is certified quadruple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His 2012 album, ‘Night Train’ is certified double-platinum, while his 2005 self-titled debut, 2007 album Relentless, 2009 album Wide Open, 2014 album Old Boots, New Dirt are all certified platinum.

Of his singles, 19 have reached number one on either the Hot Country Songs or Country Airplay charts with {non inclusive list} “Why”, “She’s Country”, “Big Green Tractor”, “The Truth”, “Don’t You Wanna Stay” (a duet with Kelly Clarkson), “Dirt Road Anthem”, The Only Way I Know” (a collaboration with Luke Bryan and Eric Church), “Any Ol’ Barstool”, “You Make It Easy”, and “Drowns the Whiskey” (a duet with Miranda Lambert). Eight more of his singles have reached the top 10.

Long a maestro of up-tempo stompers, Aldean kicks off his new album, ‘Rearview Town’ off with “Dirt to Dust” and “Set It Off,” an epic one-two punch of dirty guitars and undeniable hooks. With razor-sharp production, both songs flat out cook. Speaking about “Set It Off,” specifically, Aldean says that the quirky bassline has him chomping at the bit to bring the cut out live. “It’s got this really weird beat. You don’t know what’s about to happen,” he admits. “That takes it through the roof.”

He adds that he found himself attracted to the emotional maturity. “At this point, I want to record songs that have some substance to them,” he says. “There are songs that I cut when I was 27 or 28 that I wouldn’t cut now. [And] there are songs that I cut now that wouldn’t make sense for me to cut when I was 27 or 28. I’m more conscious of those things these days.”

The driving title track strikes a note that’s both hopeful and forlorn, a combination that felt particularly familiar to Aldean. “It’s about putting things behind you, things that have held you down, and looking ahead,” he says. “When you look at me and my career and a lot of the personal stuff I’ve [gone through], it really seemed like a fitting title.”

But for all its sonic meanderings, ‘Rearview Town‘ feels indelibly cohesive. Aldean says it’s his lifelong love of country — country music and country life – that ties it all together. “Country is the core of where we’re at.” That surefootedness has helped define the genre’s 21st century. He says: “I’m rock-infused country. It’s not George Strait’s country and it’s not Merle Haggard’s country, but it is country.”

Fellow country artists Kane Brown and Carly Pearce will get the party started!
