Jason Aldean's gorgeous, patriotic 'Tattoos On This Town' video: Watch it here

Ever since Jason Aldean released his in-your-face bar-rocker “She’s Country” in 2009, I’ve given him a pretty hard time. Had he never heard of subtlety?

But Aldean’s done a lot to undo that image in 2011. He produced a beautiful ballad with Kelly Clarkson (“Don’t You Wanna Stay?“) and a slow country-rap jam with Ludacris (“Dirt Road Anthem“), both of which hit number one on Billboard’s Country Songs chart.

Now, Aldean has released a fourth single from his smash album My Kinda Party called “Tattoos On This Town,” a nostalgic look at small-town life and love, which currently sits at number 23. Lyrically, the song is pretty standard for the country genre: Drag-racing pickup trucks, rope swings, scars—”real life stuff” Aldean tells us.

The song is just alright, but its new accompanying music video is downright beautiful. Full of sweeping cinematography and vivid natural settings, the video takes you on a heartbreaking journey of young love, pregnancy, and war.

Granted, I’m a sucker for patriotic imagery, but I think “Tattoos On This Town” does a truly classy job of representing the men and women who sacrifice so much for our country.

Check out the deftly edited video below:

What do you think of the video? Will “Tattoos On This Town” become Jason Aldean’s third straight No. 1 single?

    Not too impressed with this one.

  • Phil

    Aldean doesn’t have classic good looks, so of course this video is full of ‘attractive Southern folk’…def. not impressed with the song (I like “Dirt Road Anthem”) buyt the stunt casting for a pretty patriotic video is kinda lost onme.

      Aldean is gorgeous. That naughty little boy smile is killer.

  • Kyle Stevens

    Song’s just ok but the video is great. Good story, beautiful cinematography.

  • tom sea

    It looks just like every other country song. Maybe people are just getting better at filming and photographing?

  • kereliz

    You are right on every level. The video is lovely and I was definitely choked up at the end. :) I love Jason Aldean!

  • Sam

    This was an excellent video and a great song. Will for sure go #1

  • Mary Lou

    I love the video. Watched it several times. I think it’s a video that shuld win an award. A good song becomes a great song with the visuals. It comes to life.

    When I first got my kinda party this song and “if she could see me now” were my favorites. I’m glad to see one of my favorites get a video because when you see artists in concert they usually only play their hits and a lot of my fav songs don’t make the cut. =) Lovin’ the video!

  • Van

    Generic, cliche, product placement, looks like a car commercial from 1983.

  • Sludge Monkey

    What’s with the hoop rings in both ears? Little too tooti frutti for me.
