JASON ALDEAN TAKES USA TODAY BACKSTAGE AND ON THE ROAD FOR “THEY DON’T KNOW” MUSIC VIDEO TODAY
Gannett Sites Across the Country Mirror Premiere of Fan-Fueled Video
NASHVILLE, TN – May 22, 2017 – ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean proves he “remains one of the genre’s biggest stars” (Cleveland Scene) as he shares the music video for his adrenaline-filled new single “They Don’t Know” exclusively with USA TODAY and Gannett sites across the country today (5/22). He takes fans inside tour rehearsals in Nashville and backstage during opening weekend to witness the “blood, sweat and tears” that bring to life his new THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR.
“We’re just getting back out on the road for the summer, and after seeing the crowd sing this song back to me the first couple weekends, it reminded me how much the fans relate to it,” said Aldean. “To me, this video represents every person on my team, at country radio, my family and the fans who come out from all over the place. It’s because of them I keep getting to sing about the things I know and have lived.”
Directed by Shaun Silva, the “They Don’t Know” music video embraces the small town values and fearless attitude that confirms Aldean is “the mirror image of his fans” (Rolling Stone).
