Jason Aldean Takes His New Style On Tour To Promote ‘Night Train’
Jason Aldean might be the most well-known yet under-appreciated man in modern country music, but the under-appreciation factor is certainly not coming from his legions of dedicated fans. Cleveland.com tells is that today, Jason Aldean will dominate Progressive Field in Cleveland, OH with his “Burn It Down” tour. The show starts at 7 pm and will also include country superstars Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, and Tyler Farr. Jason Aldean is using the tour as part of an effort to promote his latest album, Night Train. Despite Aldean’s known ability to pack a full house, he concedes that he’s hoping to take his career in somewhat of a different direction through Night Train and albums that he’ll cut in the future.
In another article from Cleveland.com, Jason Aldean tells us that he is seeking to grow and proceed in a different direction than the one he initially established himself in with the songs he cut early on in his career. Aldean states that, “Early on, we came out of the box with ‘Hicktown,’ ‘Johnny Cash’ and built my thing with them. I love doing things for the live shows, but I always wanted to go in a different direction and prove that I’m a better vocalist than those songs allowed me to show.”
And that’s where Jason Aldean’s new album Night Train comes in. Aldean is seeking to showcase his vocal abilities in a more developed and mature manner. Aldean tells us that he’s changed a lot since he cut his first album, and wants to cut songs that reflect the experiences and beliefs he identifies with now at this more mature part of his life. When referring to his first hit album, the 37 year old hit singer tells us that, “I was 28 when I cut that. I still like to have as much fun as anybody, but I think the older you get, the more mature you get, and you look for songs that relate to you at that time. The songs on the first and second album, I wouldn’t even think about cutting now.”
Jason Aldean’s views on evolving his style haven’t met without criticism, but as the country super star tells us, the criticism has come from within. Jason tells us that, “It’s funny, even now, I talk to my management and stuff, and they say, we need a ‘Hicktown’ sort of thing.”
Aldean’s musical style isn’t the only change in the hit singer’s life. The Inquisitr explores Jason Aldean’s controversial relationship with former American Idol contestant, Brittany Kerr.
Regardless of Jason Aldean’s musical style, for all of those die-hard Jason Aldean fans that just can’t get enough of the man who has sold over $8.5 million copies of his five studio albums to date, Radio.com tells us that Jason Aldean will be making another live appearance this October in Las Vegas, NV at the first ever “Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival.”
