Jason Aldean Announces New Album, ‘Rearview Town’
Jason Aldean has announced the details for his upcoming eighth studio album. The superstar will release Rearview Town in April.
The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year dropped the first single from the album, "You Make It Easy," by surprise on Friday (Jan. 26), giving fans their first listen to the album. He is set to head to New York City to perform "You Make It Easy" live on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (1/29) and the Today show on Tuesday (1/30).
A press release calls Rearview Town Aldean's "most adventurous album yet," blending some of his hometown influences including Otis Redding and the Allman Brothers Band with "traditional country grooves, stadium-sized rock riffs and rap-style boom-thwack."

"Growing up in Macon, Ga., I had a chance to learn about so many different styles of music," Aldean says. "Looking back on first playing in bands as a teenager, I was just soaking everything up. A lot of that comes out on this record...where I've been, and who I am now."
"You Make It Easy" is currently available at country radio and via all digital retailers, and Rearview Town is available for pre-order at Aldean's website. The album is set for release on April 13, and Aldean will support it with his previously announced High Noon Neon Tour, which is set to launch on May 10 and run through Sept. 29. Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina will join Aldean on the road as support acts.
