Jason Aldean Unveils ‘Whiskey Me Away,’ Co-Written by Morgan Wallen [Listen]
Written by country top-seller Morgan Wallen alongside Rodney Clawson, Jeff Hyde and Drive Williams, Aldean’s new song recounts an unexpected budding romance after the protagonist makes a happenstance turn into a "long-lost highway town." He and his new love interest end up getting boozed up, but enjoying every fleeting moment they have together.
“Throwing quarters down that jukebox / Play some old-school Alabama / You got the lonely I brought in here / Almost gone without a trace / I know I've had a few, yeah, but I'm buzzing on you / You're a hangover I'd love to wake up to / So come on, baby, whiskey me away / Come on, baby, whiskey me away,” Aldean sings over his characteristic country-rock production.
Titling his upcoming 10th studio record after his hometown, the project is especially meaningful to the BBR Music recording artist.
"Where you were raised has such a big influence on who you become and for me it’s no different ... especially from a music standpoint," Aldean remarked in an earlier press statement. "My little hometown of Macon was heavily instrumental in my musical background. Growing up in an environment that was a crossroads between Country music, Southern rock, blues and R&B, it was just natural to blend different sounds in my own way.”
Last month, the superstar released Macon, the first half of his 30-track set, which includes his multi-week No. 1 single with Carrie Underwood, "If I Didn’t Love You." The song topped both the Mediabase and Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for two weeks in a row.
Aldean will continue to release new songs in the months building up to the full release of Macon, Georgia, on April 22, 2022. The collection will include all 30 tracks — 20 new songs and at least one live hit from each of his previous LPs. A commemorative three-disc vinyl set will also be available for purchase in conjunction with the complete release.
