Jason Aldean Ready for New Album, Grammys

It's set for release later this year.

Jason Aldean says that he's geared up for the release of his new album later this year.

"It's exciting," Jason told reporters Tuesday night (Jan. 17) at a Grammy nomineee party in Nashville. "I'm actually done with my part. The finishing touches are being put on it. We'll definitely release the [first] single from the new album this summer."

Jason is up for three Grammy awards, Best Country Solo Performance for "Dirt Road Anthem," Best Country Duo/ Group Performance with Kelly Clarkson for "Don't You Wanna Stay" and Best Country Album, My Kinda Party. He is also set to perform "Don't You Wanna Stay" with Kelly on the Grammy telecast, Sunday night, Feb. 12, on CBS.

Asked if there were any pre-show nerves, Jason joked, "No, [because] I only have to remember half the song. Kelly has to remember the other half. I just want to make sure I don't mess up my part."

Turning serious, Jason noted that performing on the Grammy show is a major honor. "The Grammys are a huge stage," Jason said. "I look at it as a great opportunity. This is as big as it gets for an artist."
