Product Description

2009 release, the third album from the successful Country rocker. After selling two million copies of his first two albums, topping the charts with five smash hits, racking up award nominations and hitting every stop on the requisite "new artist" tour circuit for the last three years, Aldean is running full throttle into Spring. As the title implies, Wide Open celebrates the unlimited opportunities life offers, while recognizing the all-too-familiar speed bumps along the way. "She's Country," the first single off Wide Open, is now the fastest-rising single of his career to date.

About the Artist

Jason Aldean

After selling two million copies of his first two albums, topping the charts with five smash hits, racking up award nominations and hitting every stop on the requisite "new artist" tour circuit for the last three years, country rocker Jason Aldean is running full throttle into Spring. Having just wrapped his first full and very successful headlining tour, he's prepared to leverage that momentum with the release of his highly anticipated third album, Wide Open, due out April 7.

The Macon, Georgia native wrapped up 2008 on a high note. Aldean's debut of "She's Country," the first single off the forthcoming CD and now the fastest-rising single of his carreer to date, was introduced with a lights-out performance on the CMA Awards in November.

Upon hearing the lyrics and energy in the demo of "She's Country," Aldean knew it would be a great fit for his live show. "When we got in the studio and played it for the first time, it flew out of the speakers!" he exclaims. Written as a southern shout-out to all the country girls, the song champions the big guitars and solid backbeat that form the nucleus of Aldean's signature sound. It also gives fans a taste of what lies in store on the rest of the album.

As the title implies, Wide Open celebrates the unlimited opportunities life offers, while recognizing the all-too-familiar speed bumps along the way.

"Wide Open is the only way I know how to live," explains Aldean. "I don't do anything half-ass, and you never have to guess on where I stand on things. I'm pretty much an open book. I understand there may be hitches along the way, but if I'm in, I'm in no matter what." The modern, aggressive country sound of Wide Open, as well as Jason Aldean and Relentless, can be attributed both to producer Michael Knox and Aldean's touring band, who infuse Aldean's live sound into the studio recordings, melting the two into an unstoppable force his fans have come to recognize with the first note.

"I've worked with Michael Knox for 10 years. We're great friends and he has a real good idea of the kind of songs I like," Aldean says. "We took about a year to find all the songs and record them between gigs. We were able to keep the sound we created together consistent by using my live band in the studio. We almost read each other's minds."

With a calendar full of dates and a power-packed set anchored with hits and highlighted by new material, Aldean is ready to hit the road with superstars including Keith Urban and Toby Keith and live every day the only way conceivable --wide open!

Customer Reviews

Every song on the cd is good.
James A. Mitchell
With a great and unique voice, awesome stage presence, and a pure talent to tell a song as well as sing it, I hope that next time, Jason truely is "Wide Open."
Christopher P. Smoot
I bought this CD when it originally came out and played it so much that I needed a replacement.

If you like "She's Country", you'll love the rockin sounds of "Crazy Town". All others are slower and more sappy songs. "Wide Open" and "This I Gotta See" are a little faster. Overall if you're good with a slower, love/loss album, it's great; just don't expect an entire album of rockin like "She's Country".

I expected with a title such as "Wide Open" Jason Aldean would have stepped a little further out of his safety zone and ventured into some new musical territory, but that is not the case with his third album release. This is not to say "Wide Open" is a bad album, in fact, I find it better than his debut but not quite as good as his sophmore "Relentless" album, but there is just not enough material to separate Jason from the rest of the Nashville cowboy hatters that could have sang these same songs. However, a major plus for Jason, is that you can tell that after three albums and a heavy touring schedule, Jason bolsters much more depth, emotion, and confidence in his singing, which still puts him way ahead of the other male country singers on the radio. With a great and unique voice, awesome stage presence, and a pure talent to tell a song as well as sing it, I hope that next time, Jason truely is "Wide Open."

If you love his self titled and Relentless albums, you will love this one. I'm so glad that decided not to change the formula that made him a big star. This is a CD that hasn't left my player since I got my hands on it and won't be for a long time. My favorite song on the CD has been Crazy Town so far. However over time I know that will change depending on what's going on in my life. If you want a great CD to sit back and listen to, this is one you should get.

This is a great album......probably the last before he becomes as famous as Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban.

I was pleasantly surprised with this CD. I bought it for "The Truth" and " Big Green Tractor". I am really glad I bought this because the other tracks are just as good or better. "This I gotta See" is definitely one of my favorite songs now. With a CD release like this one, Jason Aldean is well on his way to joining the ranks of Keith Urban and Brad Paisley

if you liked jason's previous two albums, this one won't disappoint! I've listened to it over and over and there isn't really a bad track on there. My favorite song right off is "Big Green Tractor" in which he talks to a lady friend and asks what she wants to do (not in those words), but suggests going to a show or...taking her for a ride on his big green tractor. I'm not the best at analyzing songs, but they are certainly all well-written and sure to please. This is typical Jason Aldean stuff with songs about life and love as well as good ole party songs!, in short: buy it!! you won't be disappointed!
