“The album is named MY KINDA PARTY because it’s totally representative of what I like and what my fans have come to expect on my records and at the ‘party’ we throw at our shows,” says Aldean. “I think the key is knowing who you are as an artist and taking it to an extreme without ripping anybody else off…it’s all about knowing what it is that sets you apart.”

Produced by Michael Knox, the essence of MY KINDA PARTY is the solidity of its material. By selling 3.5 million records in the first phase of his career, Aldean commanded the attention of Nashville’s songwriters as he put together music for the album. As a result, MY KINDA PARTY is stacked with inviting melodies and intriguing storylines.

The first single, the muscular title track, has fit very quickly into the jacked-up portion of both his concert set list and radio playlists across the country. But there’s other stylistic landscape to explore too, including his first full-fledged duet with big-voiced pop singer Kelly Clarkson for “Don’t You Wanna Stay” and the groove of “Dirt Road Anthem” that suggests Aldean has listened to a little Snoop Dogg in his time.

Aldean’s ultra-Southern vocal style gives him an immediately identifiable sound, and the band helps set him even further apart from other country stars.

“I don’t want my records to sound like everybody else’s,” he insists. “The only way to do that is to cut it like we do…with my touring band and with an engineer that nobody else uses in Nashville, and I’m really proud of that.”
