Written by Kurt Allison, Brett Beavers, Tully Kennedy and John Morgan, the track tells a weary story of failing to move on as love fades away, with Aldean’s vocal capturing a sense of frustration and despair. A mellow, hard-rock influenced ballad, the tune is featured on the Georgia portion of his double-length 10th studio album, Macon, Georgia, with Macon available now and Georgia set to arrive in full on April 22.
Meanwhile, a video directed by Shaun Silva was filmed in Las Vegas and the surrounding desert, as a down-in-the-dumps cowboy grapples with a breakup that still stings his soul. Despite going out on the town, meeting someone new and setting his sights on the National Finals Rodeo, he can’t stop seeing his ex everywhere he goes — including one of Aldean’s three sold out Vegas shows, which were part of last year’s Back In the Saddle Tour.
“The cool thing about putting out two parts of this record is having fans hear all the different influences I grew up on,” Aldean said in an official statement. “This song hit me right when I heard it and reminded me of those bitter R&B breakup songs that take me back to riding through the backroads of Georgia.”
Aldean has a slate of festival appearances on his 2022 tour schedule so far, and recently launched his own brand of whiskey, Wolf Moon Bourbon. As the new year started, he posted to social media about spending a few days golfing and celebrating with former President Donald Trump.
