“If I Didn’t Love You” was co-written by Aldean’s bandmates Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy alongside John Morgan and Lydia Vaughan. It was produced by the superstar’s longtime collaborator Michael Knox.

The emotional track, which is the singer’s current single at country radio, finds Aldean and Underwood crooning over an ex, admitting that moving on has not been easy. The track opens with Aldean’s signature vocals. Underwood joins him on the chorus as they admit to experiencing heartache following a breakup.

The multi-week chart-topper became Aldean’s 26th No.1 hit and serves as the lead single of his forthcoming 10th studio album, Macon, Georgia.
