Jason Aldean will be honored as the Artist of the Decade at next month’s ACM Awards in Las Vegas. But the three-time, reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year also has an agenda beyond picking up the trophy: He’s also dying to play “Can’t Hide Red,” his new collaboration with Florida Georgia Line from their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country album.
“I’m hoping we get a chance to, at some point, maybe perform it together on a show or something down the line somewhere,” Jason reveals. “It’s just a fun, kind of uptempo thing that… I think people will dig.”
“I don’t know if it’s gonna be a single or what their plan is for it,” he adds. “But I hope it is, because I think it’s pretty cool.”
The Georgia native says the collaboration came together pretty easily, because he talks to Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley all the time.
“I’m in touch with those guys a lot,” Jason explains. “They’ll send me songs for my record if they know we’re going in the studio… And this was just one that they sent me [and] asked if I’d want to jump on their record and do it.”
Beyond singing together, the “Rearview Town” hitmaker also enjoys getting the chance to watch his contemporaries in action.
“Working with other artists is always cool, because I get to go in the studio and…it’s interesting to see how they work and things they do,” he explains. “You know, the song was cool and [I] got a chance to record with my buddies.”
Jason himself has recently been in the studio working on his followup to Rearview Town.
Stay tuned to see if he and FGL team up to sing “Can’t Hide Red” on the April 7 ACM Awards.
