Jason Aldean didn’t spend much time in Las Vegas, after winning the ACM Award for Male Vocalist on Sunday (April 6). The Georgia native had to return to Nashville to work on his new record.

“Actually, we’re about to wrap up a new album — to go in and put vocals on it this week, as a matter of fact,” he told reporters following his acceptance speech (quote via CMT). “I think we’ll have a new single coming off of it at the end of June, first of July, something like that. And then an album dropping later this fall. We have a new tour that kicks off in May to go along with all of that. It’s coming. There will be stuff before the end of the year.”

The 37-year-old also contributed two songs, ‘Going Where the Lonely Go’ and ‘Are the Good Times Really Over,’ to ‘Working Man’s Poet: A Tribute to Merle Haggard,’ which was released last week on Broken Bow Records.

“I love that stuff. I’ve said this numerous times. I love doing things like that,” he says. “It’s not necessarily what I want to go out and play for an hour-and-a-half every night onstage, you know, but I love it.”

The ‘When She Says Baby’ singer says he grew up on music like Haggard’s, which is why contributing to the album was important to him.

“Any time I get a chance to something like that, it’s a lot of fun for me to go back and get out of my comfort zone and do something I haven’t done in a while,” he adds. “It’s cool to be able to do that every now and then.”

Aldean will kick off his Burn It Down Tour on May 1, with Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr serving as his opening acts. As part of the trek, he will play five baseball stadiums, including MLB’s Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, where Aldean will become the first country artist to headline the venue. Miranda Lambert will join him for his stadium shows in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.
