JASON ALDEAN FLASHES BACK TO “1994” FOR THE
THIRD SINGLE OFF PLATINUM ALBUM NIGHT TRAIN

Aldean Heads to NYC Next Week for Multiple Television Appearances,
All For The Hall New York and a Sold-Out Madison Square Garden Show
 
Nashville,
TN – Feb. 19, 2013 – PLATINUM selling entertainer Jason Aldean will
give country radio a dose of nostalgia unlike anything heard before when
he releases his next single, “1994,” available on Play MPE today.

“1994”
embraces hip-hop elements and takes listeners on a fun journey through
the year Aldean was a senior in high school, Justin Bieber was born, OJ
Simpson’s white Bronco sped across the nation’s TV screens and a gallon
of gas only cost $1.09.  When Aldean first heard the demo of the song,
written by Barry Dean, Luke Laird and Thomas Rhett, he nearly fell out
of his chair laughing and knew it was something totally different that
he wanted to take a crack at recording for the record.

“I
love that this song gets such a reaction from people,” said Aldean. 
“Country music in the mid-90’s was a big influence on my career, and I
played all the songs that are referenced in ’94 back in my club days. 
Joe Diffie was rocking a sick mullet, and he was hotter than ever…just
putting out monster hit after monster hit.  It totally takes me back to
those days, and it makes me smile every time I hear it.”

Critics prove that the song’s unique approach is well-received, with the Associated Press
praising Aldean’s risk-taking by saying,  “As much as Aldean has tested
the conventions of country music in recent years, nothing comes close
to the nerve it took to cut ‘1994’.”  Additionally, Billboard
labels it “the most downright fun country song to emerge this year” and
claims that it “represents the blending of hip-hop to country like no
other song before it.”

Aldean will debut “1994” next Tues. on TODAY  (2/26) and on Wed. on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (2/27).   While in NYC, he’ll also perform at the All for the Hall New York show
at the Best Buy Theatre where he will join Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris
and more in raising money for the Country Music Hall of Fame and at his
first-ever show at Madison Square Garden, which sold out a few weeks ago in less than 10 minutes.

The
2013 NIGHT TRAIN tour kicks off this Thurs. with a sold out first
weekend and continues on to 24 cities through May.  Jake Owen and Thomas
Rhett will open for Aldean on the tour which also includes sold out
stadium shows at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium (4/13), two
shows at Boston’s Fenway Park (7/12 and 7/13) and Chicago’s Wrigley
Field (7/20).
