Jason Aldean reveals new album details

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Apr 7, 2014

Jason Aldean now has a pair of ACM Male Vocalist trophies, but he's already looking ahead to the rest of 2014, with a new tour and a new album on the way. The singer told reporters at the ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 6), that he's recording vocals for the follow-up disc to "Night Train" this week.

"I think we'll have a new single coming off of it at the end of June, first of July, something like that," Jason explained (quote via CMT), "and then an album dropping later this fall. We have a new tour that kicks off in May to go along with all of that. It's coming. There will be stuff before the end of the year."

Jason also commented on his contributions to "Working Man's Poet: A Tribute to Merle Haggard," which was released last week by his label, Broken Bow Records.

"I think a lot of people probably will listen to my music and don't realize that I grew up on a lot of traditional country music, stuff like Haggard," he said. "We did a song on there called 'Are the Good Times Really Over.' That's a song that I used to play in the clubs back before I had my record deal or anything. I love that stuff. I've said this numerous times. I love doing things like that. It's not necessarily what I want to go out and play for an hour-and-a-half every night onstage, you know, but I love it."

Jason also recorded "Goin' Where the Lonely Go" for the Merle Haggard tribute.
