Hear Jason Aldean’s ‘Rearview Town’ Title Track, His Next Single
The eighth track on Aldean's newest album, "Rearview Town" was written by Kelley Lovelace, Bobby Pinson and Neil Thrasher. The lyrics focus on leaving a small hometown, but Aldean says, more broadly, the song is "about putting things behind you ... things that have held you down ... and looking ahead.”
"When you look at my career and the personal experiences I’ve gone through, it really seemed like a fitting title [track] for this record, and it’s one of the best songs I’ve ever recorded," Aldean adds. "It was important to me to pick songs that have substance to them; I’m more conscious of that these days.”
The "Rearview Town" lyric video mixes childhood and early-career photos of Aldean with footage from major concerts and big awards show wins. Eagle-eyed fans will spy a shot of Whiskey River, a now-closed venue in Aldean's hometown of Macon, Ga.
“Sometimes you have to let go,” says Aldean. “That’s this song to me, and I think a lot of my people have been there in their lives too.”
Aldean released Rearview Town on April 13. In addition to "Rearview Town," it features 14 other songs, including a collaboration with Miranda Lambert. The project's first three singles, "You Make It Easy," "Drowns the Whiskey" (the Lambert collaboration) and "Girl Like You," have all hit No. 1
