In the last 13 months, Aldean has spent more time at the No. 1 spot than any other country artist. Now that Aldean's new album release is set for November, fans may even get to hear some of the new tunes in concert. "We talked about putting some of those songs in the show," said Aldean from his Nashville, Tenn.-area home just after a family vacation to Florida. "There is a good possibility; we haven't played any of them live and there's no time like the present.

The Macon, Ga., native's 2009 album "Wide Open" propelled him into new realms with three No. 1 hits from the albums and new opportunities including the taping of CMT's "Crossroads" with Bryan Adams and working with Randy Owen.

"We've had such a great year with some really big songs and our first big arena tour, and I'm just not ready to move on from it quite yet," Aldean said about continuing the tour. "All of us ... we've been having a blast out on the road together."

To hear Aldean tell it, the next album -- due for release in November -- may well be the best yet.

"We have some cool stuff on there," Aldean said. "The success we had with 'Wide Open' helped us go out and find some really great songs. We have been in the studio every day we weren't [on the road]."

Despite the rumors of some very un-Aldeanlike sounds on the album, Aldean said the music doesn't veer much from his classic sound.

"You don't want to alienate fans who like what you do," he said, noting things will be a bit different, though. "It's our type of music. It's kind of like you want to keep with what brought you to the dance, you know."

Aldean seems convinced he always knew the sound would take him to where he wanted to be in the musical industry.

"I never went out and tried to emulate someone else's sound just because it was popular at the time," he said. "Lucky for me, I could hang around. I wasn't going anywhere and people knew that and thought they'd better start playing my record. ... All of a sudden, it just all came together."
