On the heels of receiving the prestigious ACM award for “Dick Clark Artist of the Decade” at the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this month, Jason Aldean released a music video for his song “Rearview Town,’ the title track off his most recent record-breaking album. This award marks the recording artist’s eleventh ACM win.
In celebration of this momentous feat, the entertainer turned his music video for “Rearview Town” into a nostalgic and epic flashback of his life and career thus far. The video begins with images of Aldean as a child, eventually, the old photos fade into a current shot of Aldean, singing the lyrics to the song. Images from his past continue to float alongside him, including photos of the singer at early gigs at no-name bars. The look back includes flashbacks from sold-out shows, ACM wins, and award show performances. Although the visuals mostly include happy memories, Aldean makes sure to pay tribute to the horrific shooting in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Festival, where he headlined the night of the tragedy. Flowers, photos and American flags from the tribute site are all featured as well.
Check out the video, produced by Shaun Silva below.
In a recent press release, Aldean explained the message he wants to convey to fans with his new video sharing, “The music video for ‘Rearview Town’ was a way to sort of sum up my career and personal life over the years. It’s a nod to looking back at what got you where you are today – good and bad – while looking forward down the road ahead.”
After headlining Tortuga Music Festival this past weekend and Stagecoach next week, Aldean kicks off his ‘2019 Ride All Night Tour’ at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut. The tour hits the New York/New Jersey area twice, first at PNC Bank Arts Center on May 18th and again, September 6th at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theatre. Tickets are available now. Aldean is bringing along talented singer-songwriters, Kane Brown and Carly Pearce as openers.
