My Kinda Party
2010 release from the Country favorite. There's a lot about the singer that's become familiar during his five years as a country hitmaker, after all, he has spent more weeks at #1 on the radio than any other Country artists in the last 12 months. But none of what he does comes out quite like anyone else. The blues-tinges licks at the ends of his phrases - there's a ring of familiarity about them, but you can't really link them to any other artists. The smokey guitar riffs that have become a signature - they're built on sounds that have come before, but they don't really belong to anyone else in the country genre, either. The small-town themes that pervade many of his songs - that's all been done before, but not quite with the unwavering honesty that Aldean applies to the subject.
