Jason Aldean & Carrie Underwood Hit #1 with “If I Didn’t Love You”

Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s killer collaborative song “If I Didn’t Love You” hit the top of the charts this week, making its way to number one.

Just three months after its debut, Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s duet “If I Didn’t Love You” is a hit! The song officially cemented the top spot on the country charts this week. It marks the 26th number one for Aldean, following “Blame It On You.” For Underwood, the song is her 16th number one hit.

“If I Didn’t Love You” is a heartbreaking ballad. The two singers lament about what it’s like to love someone so deeply, but not be able to be with them. Neither lover knows exactly how the other feels, making the feelings, even harder to cope with. Both Aldean and Underwood show off their vocal ability and grit throughout this enticing song.

“If I didn’t love you, I’d be good by now // I’d be better than barely getting by somehow // Yeah it would be easy not to miss you // Wonder about who’s with you // Turn the want you off whenever I want too // If I didn’t love you”

The single will appear on Aldean’s upcoming record Macon, slated for a November 12th release. As for Underwood, fans can stream the special edition of her holiday album My Gift, out now.

Get to Know the Opening Acts of Summer 2021’s Hottest Country Music Tours

All of the greats we know and love today were once the opening acts, too. Get to know today’s openers from summer 2021’s hottest country music tours.

Not only did your favorite superstars reunite with the stage this past summer, but your future favorite entertainers had the opportunity to share it with them this country concert season as well. Country music is famous for having incredible ‘superstars-to-be’ open for their major tours, and here at Country Swag, we have your guide to all the of the show openers. Learn more about this year’s opening acts below.

Tenille Arts just earned her first #1 on country radio with the smash “Somebody Like That”, following the release of her second studio album, Love, Heartbreak & Everything In Between. All her hard work is paying off this year, as she gears up for new releases and as summer set in, Arts found herself as the opening act on on Lady A’s ‘What A Song Can Do Tour’. Tenille Arts is without a doubt one of the best vocalists and songwriters of this new class of country artists and if you caught the show, you will probably agree.

Matt Stell, one of our artists to watch and Live Swag Session alums is taking over country music one single at a time. His debut single, “Prayed For You” is one of the most popular love songs in country music, and his new single, “That Ain’t Me No More” has been sent to country radio. This summer, he joined Old Dominion and Miranda Lambert on their respective run of shows.

Lainey Wilson and HARDY were both opening acts for Jason Aldean’s ‘Back In The Saddle Tour’ and if you caught the show, you know they rightfully earned their time in the spotlight. This isn’t the first time the two have toured together either; they opened for Morgan Wallen on his first headline tour over two years ago. HARDY and Wilson both released critically acclaimed albums in the past year (A ROCK and Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’, respectively) and as those albums indicated, their fiery songs got fans up and out of their seats each and every night just as fast as they sat down in them!

The full list of country tours and their opening acts are listed below. One of the best feelings is when you go to a show not knowing the opener and leaving a forever fan. If that rings true for the show’s you attended this year, be sure to remember their names, follow them on socials, stream the music and get ready to see those artists when they head back your way. For New York City country fans, head to our calendar to find out when the next shows in the area are.

Jason Aldean Duets With Carrie Underwood on “If I Didn’t Love You”

Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood duet on new song, “If I Didn’t Love You”, available everywhere now, July 23rd. When two powerhouses come together on a ballad like this, it’s bound to be a hit. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s new song, “If I Didn’t Love You”, so beautifully showcases each of their own vocal talents in the most perfect blend. Aldean announced the song just days before the drop with a mystery duet partner, but fans quickly began to speculate that it was Underwood and sure enough, it was!

“If I Didn’t Love You” is a song about two people still very much in love with each other but who are no longer together. There’s no denying how much they still care about each other because of how much they still think about them and how badly they can’t get over them, no matter what they do. If they didn’t love them, they wouldn’t be hurting like they are. The two sides telling the same story makes it even harder because they both feel the same way, but the other doesn’t know it. If they did, they might not have to feel the pain that they are.

If I didn’t love you, I’d be good by now // I’d be better than barely getting by somehow // Yeah it would be easy not to miss you // Wonder about who’s with you // Turn the want you off whenever I want too // If I didn’t love you

Earlier this week, Aldean earned his 25th No.1 with “Blame It on You”, a song off his most recent album,  9. Aldean is also gearing up to go on tour, the Back in the Saddle Tour, which kicks off in Virginia Beach on August 5th.

Underwood’s most recent piece of work was a gospel album, My Savior, which she released earlier this year in March. She will be kicking off her Vegas Residency, Reflection, at the end of this year.

Jason Aldean Earns 25th #1 Song with “Blame It On You”

Jason Aldean earns 25th number one (#1) song with “Blame It On You.” The single is officially the top song at country radio.

Fans of Jason Aldean have nothing to worry about! The superstar has been a mainstay in country music for fifteen years. Last October, his radio single “Got What I Got” earned him his 24th career number one song. Today, Aldean adds “Blame It On You” to his impressive catalog of hits.

“Blame It On You” is officially the singer’s 25th number one single. The song is the third single from Aldean’s ninth studio album, 9. The heartache song is all about recognizing your wrongdoings in a broken relationship. It is nice to see an admittance of guilt in a country song. It showcases the gamut of emotions in a breakup.

“I could blame it on the whiskey // I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t even miss me // Gave you a million reasons girl not to be with me // Should’ve never let you goo // Should’ve never watched you go // I could blame it on a good high // Let it take the blame for why you told me goodbye”

It will be interesting to see what Aldean has coming down the pipeline for his 10th studio album. In his career, he has already surpassed artists like Reba McEntire and Kenny Chesney, who have 24 and 23 number ones respectively. Congrats to Jason Aldean and his team on the number one!

8 Things We Miss the Most About Country Music Concerts

It has been a year without live music, and we still desperately miss country music concerts. However, we see the light at the end of the tunnel with artists like Eric Church and Kane Brown announcing future tour dates! Until then though, here are the 8 things we miss the most about country music concerts.

  1. The Good Vibes

There is absolutely nothing like listening to live music. The atmosphere, the adrenaline, the artists, the fans, absolutely EVERYTHING feels magical. We cannot wait for that feeling again!

 

  1. The Sound of Live Music

Albums and records are great, but there is nothing quite like hearing your favorite artist perform live. There are so many artists that we cannot wait to see as soon as we get back to some resemblance of normalcy.

 

  1. The Tailgate

If you have ever joined us at a show, especially at Jones Beach, then you know how much we love to tailgate! The tailgate sets the tone for the rest of the night and allows fans to connect and bond over the music.

 

  1. Connecting with Other Fans

One of the things we love most about NYCountry Swag is getting to connect with our followers at live shows by some of our favorite artists all across New York City and Long Island.

 

  1. Singing Along to Every Song

This one goes without saying. We even miss the raspy voice you get the day after the concert from singing your heart out for three hours straight!

 

  1. The $15 Beers at the Venue

What we would do to pay that much for a beer right now…

 

  1. Discovering new music acts to love

Although we pride ourselves on being tastemakers in the industry and always know all the acts performing at concerts, we love watching our friends and other fans experience a new artist for the first time. We’ll never forget when Tenille Townes took the stage as an opener at Dierks Bentley’s concert, and how crazy everyone went for the newcomer.

 

  1. Hearing Our Favorite Song Live

At this point, we have a whole list of songs that we cannot wait to hear live! We’re sure you do too!

 

Let us know, what are you missing most about concerts?! and sure to check out the full list of upcoming tours here.
