Jason Aldean will exclusively premiere the music video for his intoxicating Top 20 single, “Tonight Looks Good On You” during CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown this Saturday (5/23) at 8:00A CT. Following the premiere, it can also be seen across all of CMT’s digital platforms including, the CMT Artists app, and CMT Pure and will be available at all other digital partners Monday (5/25).

Directed by Mason Dixon and shot in Nashville earlier this month, the video includes a signature Aldean performance and features him as a support actor in a couple’s love story as they struggle to juggle everyday demands of supporting a family.

“It definitely wasn’t hard for me to go back to my clock-punching days,” shares Aldean. “It wasn’t that long ago that I was a Pepsi delivery guy racing the clock hoping to get home before sundown. So, it was easy to put myself back in those shoes and kinda cheer for the guy who works his ass off to get home to his girl.”

Fans can also catch Aldean perform the hit on the 2015 CMT Music Awards on June 10, where he is also nominated for three awards including “Performance of the Year”, “Male Video of the Year” and “Video of the Year.” Before hitting the CMT stage, he will continue his headlining BURN IT DOWN TOUR next weekend with dates scheduled in Charleston, WV (5/28), Hartford, CT (5/29) and Hershey, PA (5/30).

Kelsea Ballerini shined in Grand Rapids, MI, at the kickoff of CMT’s “Next Women of Country tour- the network’s first-ever ladies-only tour. Ballerini is co-headlining the run with Jana Kramer, which will make 10 stops across the country this spring, including Chicago, Nashville and Orlando.

“I’ve been looking forward to this tour for quite a while, and this first night was full of girl-power,” shares Ballerini. “I feel so excited about where women are in Country music right now, and to be able to be one of the faces that gets to represent that with Jana, is such a big deal.”

With an energetic live show and playful tunes, it’s no wonder that Ballerini is gaining the attention of other headlining acts and will be joining select dates on Lady Antebellum’s WHEELS UP Tour throughout the summer.

Ballerini’s debut single “Love Me Like You Mean It” (Ballerini, Kerr, Whitehead, Carpenter) is on the verge of Top 10 at Country Radio and released to rave reviews with Billboard praising the song as an “…Uptempo, take-charge anthem…”

The sassy tune will be featured on her highly anticipated debut album, THE FIRST TIME, releasing May 19th. Producers Forest Glen Whitehead (Black River Publishing) and Jason Massey highlight Ballerini’s adept songwriting across the 12-track project. Fans can get in on the excitement early with the album now available for digital pre-sale.

Newly crowned one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Ballerini has been garnering enormous buzz with a recent shout-outs from Superstars Taylor Swift, Little Big Town, Kristian Bush and TODAY’s Hoda Kotb as well as landing on several 2015 “Ones to Watch” lists, including BillboardCountry WeeklyThe Huffington Post, CBS Local’s Radio.comSpotify#CMChatCountry Music Is Love and more.

Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Ballerini moved to Nashville, TN at age 15 to chase the dream of becoming a songwriter. At age 19, she signed a publishing deal with Black River Publishing in 2013 and later that year signed a record deal with Black River Entertainment.
