Jason Aldean Reveals That He Is Working on a New Album
Jason Aldean's Old Boots, New Dirt album isn't even a year old yet, but the country music hitmaker is already back in the studio, working on what will be his seventh studio album.
On Tuesday (July 14), Aldean shared a photo on Instagram of himself in a studio, in front of a microphone.
"Back in the studio for album #7 ... Cant wait for u guys to hear what me and the boys are up to!!!" Aldean writes in the photo's caption. He also tagged his band members -- Tully Kennedy, Kurt Allison and Rich Redmond -- along with his producer, Michael Knox, and included the hashtag "#newmusic."
Aldean has stormed up the charts with his three singles from Old Boots, New Dirt -- "Burnin' It Down," "Just Gettin' Started" and his current single, "Tonight Looks Good on You" -- but the Georgia native says that he isn't happy that his songs are being labeled as "bro-country."
“It bothers me because I don’t feel like it’s a compliment,”he says. “To me, it’s sort of a backhanded thing that comes from a very narrow-minded listener, and I don’t know who came up with that ridiculous term.”
“We put so much time and passion into choosing the best songs for this album, and this brings a lot of hard work full circle for me,” Aldean says of the sales feat. “It’s like Christmas came early! I couldn’t do it without the best country music fans in the world, who never stop believing in what I do and always follow me, even if I may take a creative left turn every now and then.”
Aldean may have gotten some inspiration for his new record from his recent marriage: The father of two wed Brittany Kerr in March, in a beachside ceremony in Mexico.
