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."
