Earlier this morning, Jason Aldean treated NBC’s Today audience at New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza to a four-song set, including his latest single “Tonight Looks Good on You.” The song, which recently reached Number 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart, is Aldean’s third single from his 2014 platinum-selling album Old Boots, New Dirt.
Co-written by Music Row vets Rhett Akins, Ashley Gorley and Dallas Davidson, “Tonight Looks Good on You” marks the first time Aldean has recorded a song by “That’s My Kind of Night” co-writer Davidson, who first played the song for Aldean before the singer went into the studio to cut his sixth album.
“It’s one of the coolest songs that we’ve had on the last two albums,” Aldean told Rolling Stone Country in April, going on to recall hearing it for the first time on the radio. “I was leaving my house in Nashville and going to the gas station. It came on as I was pulling out of the driveway. You can listen to it on a CD or phone, but when it’s coming through 100,000 watts on the radio, it just has a different sound. I sent Dallas a screen shot of the radio and [texted], ‘Looking good!'”
Earlier this week, Aldean also celebrated his 10-year anniversary as a recording artist. “We’ve still got a lot left to do, a lot left that I want to accomplish,” he said on Today. “I feel like we’re just scratching the surface.”
The “Burnin’ It Down” singer’s current summer stadium tour with Kenny Chesney continues until the end of August. The pair will play MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on August 15th.
