Jason Aldean used to be a soft drink delivery guy. Let that image sink in a little before you hear this.
His new video for his sexy new single, “Tonight Looks Good on You,” premieres Saturday (May 23) on CMT Hot 20 Countdown.
In it, Aldean plays a part — not a starring part, just a supporting role — in one couple’s love story. And it all takes him back to those old days of driving a truck.
“It definitely wasn’t hard for me to go back to my clock-punching days,” Aldean says. “It wasn’t that long ago that I was a Pepsi delivery guy racing the clock hoping to get home before sundown. So it was easy to put myself back in those shoes and kinda cheer for the guy who works his ass off to get home to his girl.”
“Tonight Looks Good on You” was shot in Nashville and was directed by Mason Dixon. The song was written by Rhett Akins, Ashley Gorley and Dallas Davidson, a trifecta of Nashville’s hitmakers.
After a few more tour stops, you can catch Aldean performing this song live on the CMT Music Awards on June 10.
Watch the video premiere on an all-new CMT Hot 20 Countdown this Saturday and Sunday (May 23-24) at 9 a.m. ET/PT.
