Watch Jason Aldean's Intoxicating Performance of 'Drowns the Whiskey' at 2018 CMT Music Awards

Jason Aldean kept things appropriately hazy for his performance of "Drowns the Whiskey" at Wednesday's (June 6) CMT Music Awards, with the stage drenched in blue and orange lights as he crooned the Rearview Town standout track.

Unfortunately, Aldean wasn't joined by Miranda Lambert -- who is featured on the song -- for the performance, but his talented backup singers more than carried their weight in her absence. And just like the "sad old song" mentioned in the "Whiskey" lyrics, Aldean's longing vocals no doubt inspired a few bourbon orders at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

Aldean scored his fourth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 back in April when Rearview Town was the first country album of 2018 to top the chart.
