“Surprising fans for almost a decade after his genre-bending breakthrough smash ‘She’s Country,’ Aldean still revels in surprising fans and pushing the boundaries of Country music.” – USA Today
“Twelve years after Aldean helped recenter the genre, these sounds aren’t novel in country music. This is Aldean’s world; he inhabits it more convincingly than most.” – Paste
“With its programmed beats and high-octane guitars, the blustery production matches Aldean’s angst-filled vocal delivery.” – Rolling Stone
“What sets Aldean apart from the pack is that he’s still the guy from Macon, GA, who remembers the folks who have supported him from the beginning. That’s why he’s connected with audiences representing rearview towns all over the world.” – CMT
Aldean’s sure-footedness has helped define the genre’s 21st century, which plays into his 19 No. One hits, more than 15 million total album sales and dozens of sold-out stadium shows. Continuing with that momentum, the new music follows Aldean’s last three albums that each bowed at No. One on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart and all seven of his previous LPs have achieved PLATINUM certification or better. Aldean’s wide-open approach has made him a perennial live-show favorite for the format as he has headlined the biggest stadiums in the United States where “Aldean and his band rock hard and precise” (Houston Chronicle) and this year, his HIGH NOON NEON TOUR will launch on May 10th.
