Nov. 6, 2008 — Jason Aldean spent many of his off-days during the summer and fall working on his next album, and he’ll debut the first single from that project during a performance next week on "The 42nd Annual CMA Awards."

The song is titled "She’s Country," though a moniker for the album hasn’t yet been revealed. Members of Jason’s fan club, the Aldean Army, will receive a free download of the song after he performs it. "She’s Country" will also be sent to radio and will likely be heard on many stations before the end of the month.

"This song is a shout out to all the country girls out there, living in small towns and big cities from Georgia to Kansas," Jason says. "There's a lyric in there that says 'she's country from the songs she plays to the prayers she prays,' and that says it all. It's a way of life, the only one I know, and it's nothin' but country."

Jason competes for the CMA’s New Artist of the Year against Rodney Atkins, Lady Antebellum, James Otto and Kellie Pickler. The show, co-hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, airs Nov. 12 from the Sommet Center in Nashville.
