OFFSTAGE: Jason Aldean’s Ready to "Ride This Chevy"

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Jason Aldean was ready. So was his director,
Shaun Silva. “I’m ready to get dirty. So’s everybody else,” Silva said on
the set of the video shoot for “Take a Little Ride,”
Aldean’s new single. “It’s a country video with a bunch of trucks
running around in the mud,” he said. (And more than just Chevys, by the way.)  Aldean is having fun, too, but it sounds
like he’s glad he’s not out in the mud. “107 degrees outside, and lucky for us, we get to shoot the video indoors today.”
As for the finished product, Aldean thinks Silva kind of nailed it. “Shaun was really great to work with, and he used some
editing techniques I’ve never seen before in a music video that really give the song an extra shot of energy,” he said. Another
shot of energy the song has is a new lyric, made kind of possible by the folks at the Coors Brewing Company. They are endorsing
Aldean now, so his original lyric about swinging by the Quick Stop to grab a little Shiner Bock (which comes from the Spoetzl
Brewery in Shiner, Texas) didn’t quite fit. So now the song — and video — has him swinging by the Quick Stop for a couple
Rocky Tops. The video premieres Friday (Aug. 10) on CMT and CMT.com to officially kick off Jason Aldean Weekend.
