Jason Aldean Will Release “The Truth” as Next Single

Jason Aldean will release “The Truth” as his next single. Written by Ashley Monroe and Brett James, the song follows Aldean’s recent No. 1 singles, “She’s Country” and “Big Green Tractor.” All three songs come from his third album, Wide Open. “This is one of those songs that I heard the first time and knew I wanted to cut,” Aldean said. “It’s about a relationship going bad and the guy just losing it over this girl. He’s basically begging … saying ‘make up whatever story you want, tell ‘em I left town or whatever you need to say … just don’t tell ‘em the truth.’ I don’t know a guy who hasn’t been through that before.”
