(Radio.com) Jason Aldean, who is nominated for the ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, talks about "They Don't Know," the title track of his 2016 album.

"They Don't Know" was written for Aldean by Kurt Allison, Jaron Boyer and Josh Mirenda, but it expresses a sentiment that Aldean has felt often when seeing how rural people are portrayed in the media.

Aldean tells Radio.com, "Being where I'm from in Georgia, growing up on the outskirts of Macon, you have people that for lack of a better term come from [air quotes] 'the big city,' they have a tendency to sort of look down on things that they really don't understand and don't know. I think that happens a lot."

He points to films which are rarely directed or produced by people from rural communities as a prime example. "You look at an L.A. movie producer who is directing a movie about small towns, and it's like [you see] every stereotype you could imagine. Why? Because they don't understand. They've never lived in those places; they've never experienced those things. People that look down on something or frown upon something they really don't understand or don't know about it. And to me, the song says it perfectly, and I can relate to that just growing up in Georgia where I did." Read more here.
