“Tonight Looks Good on You”
Written by Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, and Ashley Gorley
Great artists start trends, and when everybody else is catching up to what they started, they’ve already moved on to something fresh.
Jason Aldean is not a great artist.
So he’s reduced to competing in the game he started, and is suffering the dual embarrassment of still doing what he was doing five years ago, and not doing it particularly better than those new to the game.
No wonder he sounds so disconnected and downtrodden. As Stephen King once wrote, “Hell is repetition.” At least we can turn the radio off.
