Jason Aldean blends two separate eras of his music with his new song, "Trouble With a Heartbreak." For the most part, the mid-tempo, rock-inspired power ballad recalls slower songs from his My Kinda Party and Night Train era, but there's a drop of R&B production that makes one think of They Don't Know, his most progressive album to date.

"Tattoos on This Town," "Flyover States" and "Night Train" aren't apples-to-apples comparisons, but sonically, that's where "Trouble With a Heartbreak" fits. This isn't to say the song from the Georgia half of his two-album series is old or tired — country music that recalls an artist's "classic" sound is working in 2022. See Zac Brown Band for an example, Lady A for another.

Brett Beavers, Kurt Allison, Tully Kennedy and John Morgan wrote "Trouble With a Heartbreak." Together, the four men recall heartbreak as something of a bruise that is very slow to heal; everyone has advice on how to "move on," but none of it is any good. The hook is more subtle, especially in the shadow of "If I Didn't Love You," Aldean's massive collaboration with Carrie Underwood.

Did You Know?: Both haves of Aldean's Macon, Georgia album series include five live recordings of older Jason Aldean songs.

Jason Aldean's "Trouble With a Heartbreak" Lyrics:

The trouble with a heartbreak.

Don't let anybody tell ya it's gonna be easy / Cause it ain't easy /
Don't let anyone tell ya they know what it's like / When they say / Get out on this town, meet somebody new, get lost in the crowd, all I see is you / Don't let anybody tell ya it's gonna be easy.

Chorus:
And that's the trouble with a heartbreak / It’s gonna hang around / Leave you midnight breaking down, wondering how / Long that it's gonna take / Getting over her / It's a can't drown whiskey down kinda hurt / Yeah, you can burn them four wheels up that road / But there ain't nowhere her memory can go / That's the trouble with a heartbreak / Yeah, that's the trouble with a heartbreak, a heartbreak.

Think about where she is, who she's driving crazy / Can't see a rear view sunset without thinking 'bout us / Girl, I still think about us.

Repeat Chorus

Get out on this town, meet somebody new / Meet somebody, get out of this town / Get lost in the crowd, all I see is you.

Repeat Chorus

Jason Aldean's beach house in Santa Rosa, Fla., sits right on the Gulf of Mexico.

Aldean paid $4.1 million for the new 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 4,452-square-foot beach house. The spectacular property affords the singer and his family the opportunity to walk out their back door and down a bridge to their own private beach, and the exterior of the villa features a courtyard with iron gates that includes gas lanterns, a swimming pool and a fountain.

The home's interior includes a downstairs with an open floorplan and oversized windows, chiseled stone floors, a gourmet kitchen, a bedroom and study and a fireplace, with coffered ceilings throughout. The upstairs of the home includes two separate master bedrooms that both overlook the Gulf, as well as two more bedrooms that each have their own attached bathrooms.

The stunning home is also set for whatever weather might blow in from the Gulf. Built in 2005, the house features all-impact windows and doors, as well as Geo-Thermal heating and cooling, cellulose insulation, foam ceiling and floor insulation and more.
