JASON ALDEAN INSTANTLY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BLAME IT ON YOU” FOLLOWING 24TH NO. ONE HIT
The “Solid Breakup Song” (ET) Now Available for Adds at Country Radio
NASHVILLE, TN – Oct. 26, 2020 – Immediately following his 24th career chart-topper and last week’s No. One song at Country radio, multi-Platinum entertainer Jason Aldean releases his new single today, “Blame It On You.” The “power ballad” (Rolling Stone) from his sixth consecutive No. One selling album 9 (Macon Music/Broken Bow Records) reflects on “the difficulty in saying goodbye” (Billboard) and is instantly going for adds at Country radio.
“When I hear songs like ‘Blame It On You’ that have more of a pop side but are still killer…I always want to see what we can do with it. The demo had this really cool auto-tune in the background that I immediately knew we needed to leave in there,” Aldean said. “We ended up cranking it up and now it almost sounds like there’s another singer on the song. It’s just really cool. I’ve always said that just because it’s a slower song, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be edgy. You can still have some attitude to it.”
“Blame It On You” was written by Aldean’s bandmates Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy alongside John Edwards, Michael Tyler and Brian White as it has the singer going round-for-round with each step of a brokenhearted journey. Coming to the realization that we make our own problems the “solid breakup song” (Entertainment Tonight) has been a fan-favorite from 9 since its release.
After almost 15 years at the top of his format, the three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” has seen trends come and go. Aldean’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul—most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified PLATINUM, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold. Known as a member of Country’s elite headliners, Aldean’s past tours are nearing legendary status as he is one of the first of few acts in the genre to sell-out multiple stadiums including UGA’s Sanford Stadium, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. Continuing success outside of the music industry, Aldean recently launched his latest collaboration, Wolf Moon Bourbon, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years in new, as it offers a finish of caramel, oak and spice.
