Jason Aldean has revealed that the follow-up single to his recent No. 1 hit “Drowns the Whiskey” is the sultry mid-tempo jam “Girl Like You.”
Penned by Jaron Boyer, Josh Mirenda and Michael Tyler, “Girl Like You” is the third single released from his eighth studio album Rearview Town. It follows the success of “Drowns the Whiskey” with Miranda Lambert and “You Make It Easy.”
On the song, Jason’s blend of rock and R&B influences are heard loud and clear with soaring guitar parts, seductive beats and his slowed singing style. Discussing the high his woman gives him, he details a long night ahead with his love.
“I’ve never met a girl like you / That’s ever done it quite like you do / Your kiss is double-barrel bourbon on rocks / Your lips are just the cherry on top / I’ve never been high like this / Turn out the lights and let me breathe you in / Your eyes are so diamond, body so gold / And I don’t want to let you go / I’ve never met a girl like you,” he sings on the chorus.
“Our fans have always been along for the ride when we mess around with different sounds,” Jason says in a statement. “I’ve always loved big guitars and a good groove, but we’ve never really done it like this before. So, it’s cool that we can do that coming off something like ‘Easy’ and ‘Whiskey.’”
Country fans can hear Jason perform the new single as part of his current High Noon Neon Tour. In the midst of his 2018 trek, Jason will return to his hometown in Georgia on Sept. 6 to host his third Concert For the Kids charity event at Macon’s Coliseum. The evening will serve as a fundraiser for Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health.
