Country star Jason Aldean has just released “You Make It Easy,” the first track from his upcoming album, Rearview Town, and he sounds like a man in love.
“You Make It Easy” is a heartfelt, blues-tinged ballad in which Aldean describes the love of his life. The song moves to a slow, steady groove that conjures scenes of cowboys slow-dancing in suburban saloons.
The song is surely inspired by Aldean’s wife Brittany, who he married in 2015. The couple recently had their first child, Memphis Aldean.
“Like a rainy Sunday morning makes me want to stay in bed twisted up all day long/ You’re my inspiration, girl. You take me places, put the words right into these songs,” sings Aldean in a tender voice. “Stealing kisses under cover babe/ See forever when I see your face/ And I swear God made you for me.”
Rearview Town, Aldean’s eighth studio album, comes out April 13. The singer says the record addresses past experiences through a variety of musical approaches.
“Growing up in Macon, Georgia, I had a chance to learn about so many different styles of music,” Aldean said in a press release. “Looking back on first playing in bands as a teenager, I was just soaking everything up. A lot of that comes out on this record…where I’ve been, and who I am now.”
