Aldean To Premiere Music Video for “A Little More Summertime” Tomorrow Exclusively on VEVO
NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 8, 2016 – “Touring and radio giant” (Rolling Stone) Jason Aldean reveals details today surrounding the release of his seventh studio album, THEY DON’T KNOW (Broken Bow Records) out tomorrow, Sept. 9. With national television performances, stadium shows, intimate radio performances and more fan surprises on Facebook Live in the lineup, RIAA’s top digital Country male artist of all time will kick things off in New York City today for the album’s release.
First, Aldean will offer fans a rare intimate performance and Q&A tonight Live from the iHeartRadio Theater NY (iHeartRadio stations broadcast 8P local time, 9/8). For release day, the “stadium Country superstar” (The Guardian) will return to Boston’s Fenway Park, where he initially made his mark as the first Country artist to play the iconic stadium in 2013. His sold-out 2016 SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR stop at the home of the Red Sox with special guest Kid Rock is the first of a two-night stint (9/9 & 9/10). Fans across the country will be able to celebrate with the debut of the music video for his new single “A Little More Summertime” on VEVO while the momentum will continue throughout the day, as the multi-Platinum entertainer is set to perform some of his greatest hits and receive the coveted ACM Triple Crown Award during Friday night’s 10th Annual ACM Honors (CBS at 9P ET on 9/9).
After this weekend’s tour dates, Aldean will strip things back for an acoustic Pandora Session launching Monday (9/12). He will return to The Big Apple to appear on Good Morning America (ABC at 8:30A ET on 9/13), where he’ll discuss the new music and offer behind-the-scenes look at the weekend’s stadium shows, before performing his new single “A Little More Summertime” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (9/13 at 11:35P ET on NBC).
THEY DON’T KNOW has already garnered praise from critics ahead of its release, finding “the Nashville superstar refining what he does best—muscular, guitar-heavy jams and ballads filled with yearning, both delivered with down-home directness. But there’s no question he kicks it up a notch here” (Hits Daily Double).
