Country music superstar Jason Aldean stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Jan. 29 to perform his newest single, “You Make It Easy.”
When he appeared onstage, the 40-year-old Georgian, who welcomed his first baby boy, Memphis, into the world on Dec. 1, 2017 with wife Brittany, stood behind the microphone and showcased his soft side with a sincere delivery of the track’s vulnerable lyrics.
“You’re my sunshine in the darkest days / My better half, my saving grace / You make me who I wanna be / You make it easy,” he crooned with his sexy set of country vocals.
Midway through the song, Jason took a step back from the microphone to let one of his backup musicians wail out an impressive instrumental solo that brought even more emotion to the slow ballad.
Even though Jason’s performance of the romantic song was perfect, he voiced concerns ahead of his appearance on the nightly program. Leading up to his performance, he posted a backstage clip on Instagram that featured some of his bandmates in the background.
“What’s up everybody? I’m here at Jimmy Fallon,” Jason said in the video before revealing he was about to sing the song on television for the first time. “Getting ready to perform tonight. So be sure to check us out, and hopefully we won’t mess our song up.”
Despite his honest worry, Jason’s delivery was enough to give any fan goose bumps.
“You Make It Easy,” which was penned by Morgan Wallen, Jordan Schmidt and Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, is the first single from Jason’s upcoming eighth studio album, “Rearview Town,” due out April 13.
Fans may be aware that the song marks the first taste of new music from Jason since his headlining show at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. The Oct. 1, 2017 concert sadly became the site of an unforeseen and horrific mass shooting that killed 58 people and hundreds more injured. Jason, of course, didn’t let the tragedy dictate his life and his career, as he and Brittany returned to the city just one week later to help victims begin the healing process.
While Jason is currently enjoying time with his wife, newborn son, and two daughters, Kendyl and Keeley, he will soon launch his 2019 “High Noon Neon Tour.” The 34-city trek begins May 10 in Kansas City, Missouri, and features special guests Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina.
