Rearview Town

Album: Rearview Town (2018)


  • This Kelley Lovelace, Bobby Pinson and Neil Thrasher penned song is the title track of Jason Aldean's Rearview Town album. The lyrics focus on leaving a small hometown, but Aldean says the tune is more generally, "about putting things behind you... things that have held you down, and looking ahead."

    He added: "When you look at my career and the personal experiences I've gone through, it really seemed like a fitting title for this record and it's one of the best songs I've ever recorded."
  • Rearview Town was Aldean's first album since the shooting that took place during his set at a music festival in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017. That event it the one he would most like to put in the rearview mirror, as he shied away from questions about it and refused to take a political stance in the aftermath. "It's not something I choose to keep reliving," he said.
