Jason Aldean Brings ‘Burnin’ It Down’ to 2014 CMA Awards [WATCH]
Aldean was, as always, magnetic during his performance. Even though the song got a few raised eyebrows when it was released, he was adamant about releasing it, believing his fans would embrace the song.
"We definitely got a few sideways looks and some raised eyebrows when we released this thing,” he says. “It’s so awesome that my fans trust that I have a pretty good ear for the kinds of songs they will like and that they follow me to new places with each album. I couldn’t be happier with all the excitement around the new music … it definitely feels like we’ve got something pretty cool happening going into album release.”
There were no raised eyebrows during his performance, though -- although his pants were noticeably skintight -- but the fans' response solidified the fact that they enjoyed his performance ... pants and all.
'Burnin' It Down' is off Aldean's 'Old Boots, New Dirt.' He didn't receive any CMA nods this year, but next year could be a totally different story.
