Jason Aldean Considering Songs for New Album
Jason Aldean's latest album, 'Night Train' debuted at No. 1 when it was released in October, and has already earned platinum status. But in spite of the success of the record, the singer says he is already making plans for his next set of tunes, which he admits he most likely won't write.
"We actually started here in just the last couple of months looking for songs for my next record," he tells Billboard magazine. "Honestly, over the years I've gotten out of writing as much as I used to, because I'm my own worst critic when it comes to songs; I'm pretty hard on myself when it comes to that stuff, and I think there's a lot of great songwriters in Nashville. I want to find the best songs I can for my album, and if I happen to write 'em, great. If I don't, I've got no problem cutting outside songs, for sure."
The Georgia native will have plenty to keep him busy over the next few months, as he continues to cross the country on his Night Train tour. But Aldean admits he wouldn't be opposed to adding another TV job to his schedule, after the success of his recent co-hosting gig at the CMT Music Awards.
“It was fun,” he says. “It was a different experience for me at an awards show like that, dealing with that stuff and not really knowing what I would get into. It ended up being a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it. CMT was happy with it, and if they want to have us back that would be something I would definitely be interested in, so we’ll see what happens.”
For now, the 36-year-old is focused on his upcoming concerts, which include two shows at Boston's Fenway Park Friday and Saturday, July 12 and 13. See all of Aldean's upcoming shows here.
