Jason Aldean Talks New Single 'When She Says Baby'
"You have certain songs that grow on you and certain songs that you kinda fall off of after a while. And this was one that, after listening to it for a year, I'm still into it. And that's usually the sign of a good song."
"When She Says Baby" was written by Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, two-thirds of the hit songwriting trio the Peach Pickers (Akins is also the father of singer Thomas Rhett).
"When we're looking for songs for a record, I mean, you have certain songs that come in that are like 'no brainers'–[as in] 'this is huge, it's gonna be a monster song.'" In a previous Radio.com interview, Aldean brought up Night Train's "Take a Little Ride" as an example of one of those 'no brainers.'
Other songs, however, "kinda grow on you as time goes on," Aldean explained. "And 'Baby' for me was one of those songs."
"I mean, I love the song," he continued. "Rhett Akins, one of the writers on it, pitched it to me. [And] as time went on I liked it enough to put it in the show. And the reaction we got there was great."
"When She Says Baby" also made the song list during Aldean's show last spring at the University of Georgia's Sanford Stadium–a set that is now showcased on his brand-new live DVD, Night Train To Georgia. So obviously he–and his fans–were already digging the song months ago. more on this story
