Jason Aldean releases 10th album “Macon, Georgia” with plans to share 30 new songs
On September 27, country music superstar Jason Aldean announced a complex rollout plan for his 10th studio album. To mark this important milestone, Aldean pays tribute to his proud roots, by titling the LP Macon, Georgia.
During his 16 year career, Aldean has shaped the sound of modern country music. To distill this sound signature, the artist has emphasized a lyricism that lends itself to a transcendent narration. With a traditional country influence, the multi-platinum artist pushes the boundaries of the genre while continuing to build on this revered foundation.
With 25 # 1 hits, 15 billion streams and over 20 million albums sold, Aldean shows no signs of slowing down as we approach this impressive career milestone. His unique ability to connect with his audience from the stage is best exemplified in his resume which includes three times ACM â€œEntertainer of the Yearâ€.
The first leg of this winding journey begins on November 12 when the artist drops the first batch of 15 songs under the title Builder. Comprised of 10 originals, this release also includes a live track from each of his first five albums – Jason aldean (2005), Tirelessly (2007), Wide-open (2009), My kind of party (2010), and Night Train (2012).
With the veteran hand of producer Michal Knox, Builder presents Aldean’s dynamic approach to country music. From southern rock hymns to traditional country ballads, this first batch is an intentional summary of the artist’s expansive contribution to the genre.
â€œWhere you were raised has such a big influence on who you become and for me it’s no differentâ€¦ especially from a musical point of view,â€ Aldean said in a press release. â€œMy hometown of Macon greatly contributed to my musical education. Growing up in an environment at the crossroads between country music, southern rock, blues and R&B, it was only natural to mix different sounds in my own way. “
Aldean will continue in phases until he shares his 30 new songs as a full release on April 22, 2022. To celebrate the full release, Macon, Georgia will also be packaged in a commemorative set of three vinyl records.
