Review by Matthew Fortuna
Jason Aldean has quickly propelled himself in three years to near the top of the country music stratosphere. The singer has rocked the Opry, headlined concerts, released a live album and found himself atop country music charts on several occasions, all at the young age of 33.
Aldean now looks to open a new page in his book, releasing “My Kinda Party.” The single is off of a yet to be announced upcoming album and represents his first offering since reaching the top of country star status. Not quite a sophomore effort, but the new song indicates the direction the new star will take after his biggest break yet.
The song rocks like few contemporaries in country music have been able to, but Jason Aldean has made a staple sound in his catalog. Heavy on guitar riffs and rock ‘n’ roll drums, the single finds Aldean working all week, but “clean cut, clean scrubbed and clean shave.” Ready to party as ever, Aldean spells
out his Friday night, and they’re partying just the way he likes it: pure country style.
The song was penned by Southern rock artist, Brantley Gilbert, who infuses the rock energy that Aldean meshes so well with. The song dates back to 2007 and Jason Aldean’s association with Gilbert dates back to the Aldean’s last album, which featured the Gilbert-written “The Best of Me.” Aldean’s new album is also rumored to feature the Brantley Gilbert anthem “Dirt Road Anthem.”
As Aldean continue to evolve his rock and roll style, he looks to continue to pile hits atop the charts. His least three singles, “Big Green Tractor,” “She’s Country” and “The Truth” have all reached number one on country charts, and the singer has toured with acts as large as Tim McGraw. He hopes to continue the success with single’s like “My Kinda Party,” that keep people loving country around the world.

"My Kind Of Party" Lyrics
Yeah I worked all week.
Cleaned up clean cut and clean shaved.
Get the cover off the ’68.
Fire it up and let them horses sing.
A little pretty thing.
A little tan-legged Georgia dream.
She’s a rockin’ them holey jeans.
Baby what you got goin’ on Saturday?
You know words got it there’s gonna be a party
Out of town about half a mile.
Four wheel drives and big mud tires.
Oh baby you can find me.
In the back of a Ford truck tailgate.
Sittin’ ‘round watchin’ all these pretty things.
Gettin’ down in that Georgia clay.
And I’ll find peace.
In the bottom of a real tall cold drink.
Chillin to some Skynyrd or some old Hank.
Lets get this thing started.
It’s my kinda party.
Girl well if you’re gonna drink.
Go on baby just do your thing.
Give up your keys.
Hell why drive when you can stay with me?
And then after while we’ll sneak away from the bonfire.
Walk by the moonlight and down at the riverside.
Gotcha sippin’ on the moonshine.
Baby if you’re in mood you can settle for a one night rodeo.
If you can be my tan-legged Juliet
I’ll be your Redneck Romeo
Where ya’ll goin’?
We still got a keg breathin’
