Jason Aldean continues to embrace the genre-blending sound that has helped define his career with latest single “Got What I Got”, out now.
Taken from his sixth consecutive #1 selling album 9 (Macon Music/BBR Music Group), the track was produced by long-time collaborator Michael Knox and is an expression of gratitude for the ones we love.
“When I first heard ‘Got What I Got’ it reminded me of something Boyz II Men would do…almost like a 90’s R&B throwback song,” Aldean shared. “It’s just not something you really hear in Country music that much…plus, now more than ever, I think we’re all just being reminded how to appreciate the people we love.”
After almost 15 years at the top of his game, three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean has seen trends come and go. He’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, like a Country-music Columbus making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul—most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all eight of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 18 million albums sold as well as 23 radio chart-toppers.
