jason aldean

Hot on the heels of his 17th career No. One this week, Academy of Country Music’s “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean deploys “A Little More Summertime” to Country Radio. With his signature wide-open sound, the wistful track is the second release from the multi-Platinum singer’s newly announced seventh studio album THEY DON’T KNOW, available Sept. 9th. Fans who pre-order the upcoming release will instantly receive the new single at all available digital retailers beginning today.

“‘A Little More Summertime’ really hit me the first time I heard it,” said Aldean. “It’s always been about the vibe of a song for me. So when that chorus hits and the song takes off, I knew it had to be on this album.”

Written by Jerry Flowers, Tony Martin and Wendell Mobley, Aldean has teamed up with longtime producer Michael Knox for the track and forthcoming album. With the same band on-and-off stage for a full decade, They Don’t Know returns with a crowd-pleasing array of emotions and observations, from sizzling party-starters to hard-earned heartbreak. With the new music, the coveted ACM Triple Crown winner reveals lessons learned and confidence gained over the course of a career that includes more than 14 million album sales. No longer just a newcomer bringing a new energy to country music, he’s truly an established star, one of the standard-bearers of the genre.
