Jason Aldean Drops Surprise Song With "Tough Crowd"

Current ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean today debuted new music from a forthcoming album with the release of his new track “Tough Crowd.” Produced by Michael Knox and written by Kurt Allison, Marv Green, Tully Kennedy, Kelley Lovelace, and Neil Thrasher, the anthem is now available!




In addition to his 35th ACM career nomination, Aldean was recently announced as a performer at the 2023 ACM Awards, which will air this week live from Frisco, TX (5/11).


Of the new song, “Tough Crowd,” the 15-time ACM Award winner shared, “This is just a song to me that talks about our fans…about us onstage getting a bird's-eye view of our fans that come in all shapes and sizes and colors. It's just really cool to look out and just see those people from all different walks of life come together for a show and have fun.”


Since making his chart debut in 2005, the current reigning ACM Artist of the Decade and 3X ACM Entertainer of the Year and the most Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart - more than any other artist - with “songs of small-town living, love and loss have resonated with a loyal fanbase” (Billboard) that havevaulted him to the pinnacle of Country music success” (Atlanta Journal Constitution). “Tough Crowd” follows the Grammy-nominated, multi-Platinum entertainer’s 10th career studio album, MACON, GEORGIA, which featured 20 new songs and an additional 10 live tracks. The album earned the Georgia-native critical praise from Rolling Stone, Stereogum, and featured his 27th career-charting #1 single, "Trouble With A Heartbreak,” as well “If I Didn’t Love You” with Carrie Underwood, which in addition to earning Grammy and Billboard nominations, won ACM, CMT, and iHeart Awards.





With 27 number one singles, 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold to date, Aldean also recently announced his upcoming Highway Desperado Tour.
