Current ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean today debuted new music from a forthcoming album with the release of his new track “Tough Crowd.” (listen above) Produced by Michael Knox and written by Kurt Allison, Marv Green, Tully Kennedy, Kelley Lovelace, and Neil Thrasher, the anthem is now available here. In addition to his 35th ACM career nomination, Aldean was recently announced as a performer at the 2023 ACM Awards, which will air this week live from Frisco, TX (5/11).
Of the new song, “Tough Crowd,” the 15-time ACM Award winner shared, “This is just a song to me that talks about our fans…about us onstage getting a bird’s-eye view of our fans that come in all shapes and sizes and colors. It’s just really cool to look out and just see those people from all different walks of life come together for a show and have fun.”
“Tough Crowd” follows Aldeans’s 10th career studio album, MACON, GEORGIA, which featured 20 new songs and an additional 10 live tracks. Aldean also recently announced his upcoming Highway Desperado Tour. The 39-city headlining tour kicks off on July 14 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY making stops across the U.S. in Atlanta, Charlotte, Phoenix and more before wrapping up in Tampa at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre on October 28. Mitchell Tenpenny serves as direct support for Aldean, alongside openers Corey Kent and DJ Silver.
