“Sweetwater” will hit Sundance Film Festival screens on January 24.

Aldean told ABC News Radio earlier this month he was planning to dabble in acting, but it turns out he’s already been in front of the camera for a new western, which will also star Ed Harris, January Jones, Jason Isaacs, Eduardo Noriega and Steven Root.

Sweetwater takes place in the late 1800s and is described as “an intense but humorous film” centering around a fanatical religious leader, a renegade Sheriff, and a former prostitute who collide in a blood triangle on the rugged plains of the New Mexico Territory.

It was shot in New Mexico.
