Jason Aldean shows off why he won ACM’s 2016 Entertainer of the Year with his new video for “Lights Come On.” The video puts a fresh spin on the live concert format by showcasing the incredible experience Aldean gives audiences when he’s on tour.

Cameras go behind the scenes to show Aldean’s crew gearing up for another arena performance. “I used to think it was cool to sell out a little night club, so now when I walk into an arena, amphitheater or stadium it completely exceeds anything I’ve ever imagined,” he says, according to the press release.
Sweeping overhead shots of those stadiums and intimate close-ups of fans singing along pepper the video, which mainly focuses on Aldean and his larger than life performances. The video captures the big energy and rip-roaring good time he and his band provide with every show.
“The very first 10-15 seconds of the show, the first time we see the crowd, the first time they see us, right off the bat to me is what sets the tone for the rest of the show,” he says in the video. “It’s like the fire’s burning, that sorta just pours gasoline on it, then the explosion.”
The song appears on Aldean’s upcoming seventh album, which will be released sometime this summer.
