Jason Aldean is revealing a little more from his upcoming album Rearview Town.
The title track, written by Kelley Lovelace, Bobby Pinson and Neil Thrasher, is the latest cut that Jason is sharing. It tells the story of someone who is leaving town and not looking back while they put their past behind.
“It ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town / Broken hearts and rusted plows / Roots ripped right up out of the ground / Never thought I’d ever leave it/ It ain’t nothin’ what it used to be / Population minus me / On the other side of that dust cloud/ Ain’t nothin’ but a rearview town,” Jason sings in the chorus.
“It’s about putting things behind you—things that have held you down—and looking ahead,” said Jason. “When you look at my career and the personal experiences I’ve gone through, it really seemed like a fitting title for this record. It’s one of the best songs I’ve ever recorded.”
In addition, Jason released a lyric video for the song. The black and white video shows images of Jason throughout his career. Lyrics scroll over the footage giving us a peek at the road Jason traveled to get toward his future.
Rearview Town, which features Jason’s current single “You Make It Easy, is set to release on April 13. Also featured on the album is “Drowns the Whiskey,” a duet with Miranda Lambert.
