Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert and Blake Shelton Featured on ‘Madden NFL ’17’ Soundtrack
Get ready for some (virtual) football! A handful of country artists are among those featured on the eclectic soundtrack for Madden NFL '17.
Madden NFL '17 is set for release on Aug. 23, and within the game, players will hear 40 tracks spanning a number of different musical genres. In addition to including tracks from rapper 2 Chainz and rockers Young the Giant, the game's soundtrack also features music from well-known country stars Blake Shelton, Brantley Gilbert and Jason Aldean; while playing, gamers can expect to hear Shelton's "Straight Outta Cold Beer," Gilbert's "It's About to Get Dirty" and Aldean's "Lights Come On." The Madden NFL '17 soundtrack also includes country up-and-comers Cale Dodds ("Acting Our Age"), High Valley ("Young Forever") and Goodbye June ("Oh No").
Shelton's Madden NFL '17 contribution comes from his newest album, If I'm Honest, while Gilbert's is a still-unreleased track that he's been performing live recently. Aldean's "Lights Come On" was the first single from his forthcoming new album, They Don’t Know.
“I really wanted to start this new album with one of those big uptempos,” Aldean says of “Lights Come On” (quote via Rolling Stone Country). “With all the records we’ve done, we’ve been able to explore new sounds and really just do things our own way, and that’s sort of what the title track is all about.”
They Don’t Know is set for release on Sept. 9.
