The country superstar and Georgia native performed Garth Brooks’ “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)” for the fans in West Palm Beach, Florida, who purchased his VIP package on the Back In The Saddle Tour on October 29.
“This song just came out, and I wasn’t very old at the time. So I didn’t really understand what the song meant. I think I understand it a little more now, the older I’ve gotten,” Aldean said before covering the popular Brooks’ tune.
“Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)” is Brooks’ debut single, and the first single from his self-titled debut album.

In addition to performing Brooks’ hit, Aldean also covered Tracy Lawrence’s “Time Marches On,” a song from someone who he labeled one of his favorite singers.
“I thought we were in the trust trade, so one day I told him, I’m like ‘hey man, I used to have a poster of you in my room.’ And he kind of looked at me like I was really weird all of a sudden,” Aldean explained ahead of the performance. “I was like ‘man, I’m just saying the poster was cool.’ He was like kicked back on a Harley, it was like a cool poster. I don’t think he knew what to think of me after that. So, luckily, it didn’t ruin our friendship and still to this day one of my favorite singers.”
Co-written by Bobby Braddock, “Time Marches On” is the second single and title track from Lawrence’s album, Time Marches On.

Aldean’s VIP package on the Back In The Saddle Tour includes a private acoustic concert in the ‘Wolf Lodge,’ limited to a handful of fans, as well as exclusive merchandise, tasting of Aldean’s Wolf Moon Bourbon, a ticket to the show, and more.
The Georgia native recently announced plans to release his 10th studio album, Macon, Georgia.
Arriving on April 22, 2022, via BBR Music Group, the two-part project features 30-tracks, including 10-live tracks and 20 new originals. The album will also feature the chart-climbing lead single, “If I Didn’t Love You,” a duet with Carrie Underwood.
On Nov. 12 fans will have access to fourteen new tracks as Aldean unleashes part 1 of his two part album.
“Where you were raised has such a big influence on who you become and for me it’s no different…especially from a music standpoint,” Aldean said. “My little hometown of Macon was heavily instrumental in my musical background. Growing up in an environment that was a crossroads between Country music, Southern rock, blues and R&B, it was just natural to blend different sounds in my on way.”
Additionally, Aldean recently wrapped up The Back In The Saddle Tour in Tampa, Florida at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre on Saturday, October 30.
Aldean will now enjoy a short break from the road before he returns to Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas for his Back in the Saddle: Las Vegas 2021 three-night mini-residency which runs December 9 through 11th.
