The tour announcement comes on the heels of Aldean’s 11th studio album release earlier this month. Featured by CBS Mornings, Associated Press, Billboard, The Tennessean, LA Times, American Songwriter, Fox and Friends and more, Aldean released his album-inspired by the same name, HIGHWAY DESPERADO-on November 3rd. The album includes fourteen total tracks, including Aldean’s breakthrough Hot 100 chart-topping single “Try That In A Small Town,” which recently became his 28th career #1 single at Country radio, as well as three tracks co-written by Aldean-a first since his 2009 Wide Open album-as well as his new radio single, “Let Your Boys Be Country.” The 3X ACM Entertainer of the Year winner first introduced new music from the album in May with the release of the fan-appreciation anthem, “Tough Crowd,” at this year’s ACM Awards, where Aldean-a 3X winner in the category- was an Entertainer of the Year nominee. He also earned two nominations-both for “Top Song Sales Artist” and “Top Selling Song” for “Try That In A Small Town”- at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards.
Aldean recently released the music video for his next single, “Let Your Boys Be Country,” with special guest appearances by his young son and daughter. Written by Allison Veltz Cruz, Jaron Boyer, and Micah Wilshire, “Let Your Boys Be Country” off of the new album highlights the simplicity and innocence of childhood and rural life, with American Songwriter noting “lines like ‘Let everything inside these county lines be his whole world. You want him to grow up to be someone he’s damn proud to be. Mamas, let your boys be country’ nail the mindset of the song.” HIGHWAY DESPERADO follows Aldean’s double album MACON, GEORGIA, which earned Aldean his #1 single, “Trouble With A Heartbreak,” as well as a Billboard Music Award nomination for “Top Country Song” and awards from ACM, CMT, iHeart, and a GRAMMY nomination for “If I Didn’t Love You” with Carrie Underwood. Since making his chart debut in 2005, the Georgia native has earned the most Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – more than any other artist – his “songs of small-town living, love and loss have resonated with a loyal fanbase” (Billboard) and have “vaulted him to the pinnacle of Country music success” (Atlanta Journal Constitution).
