Jason Aldean has a new movie hitting Sundance this January

Back a couple of days ago there was a story going around that Jason Aldean was interested in adding acting to his resume. From Country Weekly:

"I may dabble in some things here and there. Movies or whatever maybe here and there," Jason tells ABC News Radio, "but music will always kinda be my main focus."

Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, Carrie Underwood and Kix Brooks have all tried the big screen, and Miranda Lambert had a turn on one of her favorite TV crime dramas.

Jason says he just wants to give it a try.

"It's one of those things where if I do a movie, I don't even know if I'm any good. So, I may do one and it sucks and I'm a horrible actor, and I'll never do another one. We'll see," he said.

"But you'll probably see me dabbling in some stuff like that, I think, in the future."

The funny thing is, Jason's already apparently added actor to his resume and has a movie that will be hitting the Sundance Film Festival this January. 

According to The Salt Lake Review, Jason appears in a movie called "Sweetwater" which stars January Jones (X-Men: First Class) and Ed Harris (Appaloosa). Here's the info The Salt Lake Review has on Jason's very first movie:


Director: Logan and Noah Miller

Cast: January Jones, Ed Harris, Jason Isaacs, Jason Aldean, Eduardo Noriega

Attending: January Jones, Ed Harris, Jason Isaacs, Eduardo Noriega

Set in the untamed desert of 1880s New Mexico, a prostitute-turned-doting farmers wife (January Jones) is forced to seek vigilante justice when power-hungry self-proclaimed Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs) unleashes violence in his community. Complicated by the arrival of the shrewd, yet eccentric Sherriff Jackson (Ed Harris), the battle of good versus evil and faith versus fanaticism comes to a head in the sleepy town of Sweetwater. (World Premiere)

The info about the movie being shot was released back April, but there was no mention of Jason taking part in it. IMDB also doesn't list Jason as being part of the film so I'm not too sure how much he will appear in it. I also can't find a website for the movie or an expected release date so it's all kind of a blurry mystery right now. I will keep you updated once I find some more info.
