Today, Jason Aldean officially released his brand new single, “Try That In A Small Town.” Unlike some of his other small town anthems, such as “They Don’t Know” and “Tattoos On This Town,” this one seems to be about taking issue with what is happening in the world and how none of it would fly in places like that.
Jason called into The Bobby Bones Show this morning to discuss how he felt the first time he heard the demo and why he decided to cut it:
“I heard this song and it just kind of explained to me what’s going on in the world. It resonated with me,” he says. “Every day you turn on the news and see something else crazy that’s happening and a new heartbreaking story. It’s just a different mindset and different kind of values in small town America that I wish everyone else would adopt.”
Given that Jason hasn’t been shy when it comes to his political beliefs over the last couple of years, I’m not sure there would’ve been a better artist to cut “Try That In A Small Town.”
While there’s no title or official release date yet, Aldean says he is about done and wrapping up his eleventh studio album. After releasing “Tough Crowd” and performing it on the ACM’s last week, this is Jason’s second song released off the un-titled new record. Check it out, below.
