After almost 15 years at the top of his game, reigning Academy of Country Music ‘Artist of the Decade’ Jason Aldean announces that his new album ‘9’ will be released on November 22. Available now for pre-order HERE, fans will instantly be able to access to four new songs from the upcoming album.
“Early on I always thought if we ever got to make nine albums, I’m going to call it ‘9.’ It was my baseball number growing up, and it’s just kind of always been my lucky number,” explains Aldean. “I remember cutting the first album and thinking ‘that’s forever away,’ and now here we are. I don’t know, it’s really special we made it this far – so, it’s more for me than anybody else – but, it means a lot.”
To celebrate the announcement the multi-platinum, multi-award-winning musician offers fans an immediate preview of the new album with the release of four of its tracks. ‘Blame It On You’ sways with a half-drunk realization that we make our own problems, ’I Don’t Drink Anymore’ serves a 100-proof hook, ‘Keep It Small Town’ reminds that well-lived lives don’t have to be complicated and the album’s fiery lead single ‘We Back’ rounds out the first-released songs.

Speaking about ‘We Back’ Aldean comments that,
“When I came into country music and made my mark, it was with a banger, but we haven’t put out a lot of that stuff over the last couple years. So we got this song and to me it just says what it says: ‘Thought we were gone, but you’re wrong – now it’s on.’”
A dominant force on the US charts, Aldean has scored 23 Number One Country singles. He’s the only Country act in history to top the all-genre Billboard 200 four times (in a row, no less), racking up 14.4 billion streams and more than 18 million albums sold along the way.
