OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
BBR Music Group recording artist, chart-topping Country music superstar Jason Aldean has announced his highly-anticipated 11th studio album, HIGHWAY DESPERADO, will be released on November 3, 2023.
HIGHWAY DESPERADO features fourteen tracks, including Aldean’s breakthrough Hot 100 chart-topping single and current Top 10 Country radio hit, ‘Try That In A Small Town’, which has accumulated more than 120m global streams to date. The album also features the newly released track ‘Let Your Boys Be Country’, as well as three tracks co-written by Aldean. Additionally, the album features songs co-written by BMG songwriters Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy, as well as BBR Music Group labelmate John Morgan. The 3X ACM Entertainer of the Year first introduced new music from the album in May with the release of the fan-appreciation anthem ‘Tough Crowd’, at this year’s ACM Awards.
Aldean shared the inspiration for the album’s title came from his latest sold-out headlining arena tour, as well as his early days as an artist. Said Aldean, “I think when I look back on it, I built my career early on my live show, and have been on the road touring since I was 18 years old. For us, touring is our favorite part. Getting on the bus and going town to town and playing our shows and doing our thing and seeing the fans… the title for the tour and album was really inspired from that.”
The album, produced by longtime collaborator Michael Knox, marks the first new music since Aldean’s 10th studio project, the double album MACON, GEORGIA, which earned Aldean his 27th career-charting Number One single, ‘Trouble With A Heartbreak’, as well as a Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Country Song and awards from ACM, CMT, iHeart, and a Grammy nomination for ‘If I Didn’t Love You’ with Carrie Underwood. Since making his chart debut in 2005, the Georgia native has earned the most Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart - more than any other artist.
