No one has ever said that Jason Aldean is a bore – far from it actually. Since he burst onto the country music scene in 2005, the Georgia boy has ignited audience after audience with his electric way of delivering a song to thousands of fans each and every night.

Yet, Jason was admittedly on fire at this year’s CMA Music Fest, performing a high-energy version of his current hit song, “Lights Come On.” Indeed, the song has become quite the crowd-pleaser, and the ultimate way to get the party started for not only Jason, but also his fans.

“The high energy of the song is just something that has come from me playing the clubs,” explained Jason in a piece promoting “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock,” which airs at 8/7c on Wednesday, Aug. 3 on ABC. “It was always one of those things that I wanted to do to get people’s attention. It’s a song that tells a story – a story of what we do every night on stage.”

Jason remembers the days when he wasn’t playing LP Field, but instead playing the smaller stages lining Nashville’s Riverfront during CMA Fest. Yet, now that he has reached country music stardom, he loves being able to deliver a song like “Lights Come On” to the CMA Fest audience.

“It’s my way of saying thank you to the fans,” he concluded.

No – thank you, Jason.

“CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock” airs at 8/7c on Wednesday, Aug. 3 on ABC.
