Jason Aldean’s ‘Dirt We Were Raised On’ Celebrates His Roots [Listen]
Jason Aldean is readying the release of his upcoming ninth studio album, and he's teasing fans by releasing another one of the new tracks. Aldean is letting fans hear "Dirt We Were Raised On" in advance of the Nov. 22 release.
"Dirt We Were Raised On" is both classic and new at the same time for longtime Aldean fans. The song centers around a hard-charging, distorted electric guitar riff, featuring lyrics that reminisce about Aldean's country raising.
"It's on our boots / It's on our trucks / It was in that cloud of dust we stirred up / It was out in the fields / On them old back roads / It covers this town like it covers my soul / Yeah it's in our bones / In our blood / Yeah as deep as these roots run / We'll never be too far gone / From the dirt we were raised on," Aldean sings in the chorus.
