Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood have just released the formal video for their duet, “If I Didn’t Love You.”
It was filmed at Nashville’s stunningly beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
“If I Didn’t Love You” will be on Jason’s upcoming tenth album, as the lead single. It’s release came as the highest debut of a male-female duet since the start of the Billboard Hot Country charts. “I’m usually not a guy into doing real sappy-type love songs — not that this is sappy. It’s more of a kind of breaking up and getting over it kind of song. To me that’s a kind of love song,” Aldean told iHeart Country about “If I Didn’t Love You” during a recent interview. He pointed out such superstar duet partners as Dolly Parton with Kenny Rogers, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, or Tim McGraw with Faith Hill. Aldean says they inspired his wish to perform with Underwood: “When you get it right, it’s really cool.”
“Carrie was made for this song, but also for this video,” Aldean says, from a press release. “I’m glad that she was down to get together to make it…it’s something that turned out a little outside of what I’d normally do, which is always cool.”
