Grammy-nominee Jason Aldean reveals more details today behind the expansive 10th release of his double-album MACON, GEORGIA (Macon Music/Broken Bow Records), available 22 April. Built slow through long months off the road, Aldean’s full 10th studio album represents the first chunk of time since Aldean was a teen that he was not hopping from city to city each night, and he put it to good use. Part all-new music and part career retrospective, highlighting the fiery live shows Aldean’s made his calling card, the massive set features 30 songs over two jam-packed releases – with 20 new tunes and 10 unheard live takes showcasing everything he does. The full release will also be marked by a commemorative three-disc vinyl set which fans can pre-order here. The collection’s second instalment, GEORGIA, is now available for pre-order here, with MACON already available here. “We’ve always tried to lean toward more songs than less…and this album is no different,” Aldean explains. “We decided to pepper in some of the live tracks we’ve had stockpiled for a while. After nine albums and 16 years of recording, I hope people can tell I wanted to make this tenth album fun and different from anything we’ve done before.” Leading into the release of the second instalment, GEORGIA, Aldean will release a new track. Today, fans have access to the first track released off GEORGIA, ‘Whiskey Me Away’ here.

Since the very beginning, the Macon-specific confluence of Country music, Southern rock, and R&B has provided inspiration for his work – from hometown legends like the Allman Brothers to Otis Redding and beyond – helping him create a game changing country-rock mix. Here he tips a hat, while continuing to leave his own mark on the city’s vibrant history. Above all, he reaffirms his allegiance to the world Macon represents.
