Too Fast

Album: Old Boots, New Dirt (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Jason Aldean considers this Chris Stapleton and Lee Thomas Miller penned song to be one of the best written tracks on the Old Boots, New Dirt album. He explained to Entertainment.ie: "Chris Stapleton, one of the writers on that and I think is probably the best singer in town in my opinion. He sang the demo of that song and it was amazing. I fell in love with the song and I feel like it's a little more of a soulful kind of thing and its cool to have a song like 'Too Fast' or 'Two Night Town' or one of those things where you can really get soulful and show off your vocal style a little bit."

    "Those melodies and things like that that are in the song; we had never really record anything like that before. I thought it was really cool from that aspect and like I said one of the most well written songs on the record I think; probably the most well written song on any record I've ever done."
