Brantley Gilbert must be one of Jason Aldean's favorite songwriters. When Jason announced the track listings for his new CD Monday, Brantley fans also got a special treat: The CD will include two of Brantley's songs.
Jason's first single and the CD's title track, "My Kind of Party," appears of Brantley's CD "Halfway to Heaven."
Brantley announced that Jason was releasing "My Kinda Party" earlier this month via his blog. "It's an honor that someone like Jason would want to record one of my songs. I'm proud to see my name attached to Jason's version and hope you guys feel the same.
"This is a big step for me as a songwriter and I couldn't have asked for a better artist to perform the song. After all, he is a Georgia boy! I love how passionate you all are about this song and my music, I just want you to know that this is a good thing," he assured his fans.
"Let's show support as Jason runs 'My Kinda Party' up the charts! This is a great thing for all of us, including you. Thanks again for all your support! Can I get a hell yeah?!!!!" Brantley asks his fans.
Brantley's "Dirt Road Anthem" (originally recorded by Brantley's good friend Colt Ford) will also be on Jason's new CD. Brantley's "The Best of Me" was an iTunes exclusive track on Jason's platinum "Wide Open" and appears on Brantley's "Modernday Prodigal Son" CD.
While Brantley has yet to find success as a singer (despite having one of the best voices I've ever heard!), having Jason Aldean record three of his songs could help him get the attention he so deserves.
Jason's new CD is due November 2 and will include 15 tracks, including a duet with Kelly Clarkson. “The album is named MY KINDA PARTY because it’s totally representative of what I like and what my fans have come to expect on my records and at the ‘party’ we throw at our shows,” Jason said. “I think the key is knowing who you are as an artist and taking it to an extreme without ripping anybody else off...it’s all about knowing what it is that sets you apart.”
A preview of Jason Aldean's "My Kind of Party" CD cover was just posted on his Facebook page. Watch the video at www.facebook.com/jasonaldean.
