Aldean claims another chart topper
Monday, May 14, 2012
– Jason Aldean will claim his fifth straight number one single from his latest CD when Fly Over States.
The song will become his ninth overall number one when the charts are officially released Thursday on Billboard.
Aldean takes over the top from Miranda Lambert's Over You.
"I've always loved this song, and I really hoped it would be a single eventually. I didn't know we would get to put out five songs off this album, let alone have all of them go to No. one. It totally blows my mind," said Aldean. "I'm really looking forward to the summer leg of the tour and getting some new music ready."
Aldean is currently headlining his My Kinda Party Tour. He kicks off amphitheatre season this weekend with a sold out show in Birmingham, Ala. on Thursday before heading to Atlanta for a two-night stand at Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood on Friday and Saturday. The first Atlanta show sold out in only four minutes in February so a second was added and sold out in just a few hours. Aldean has sold out every show so far this year, setting over a dozen venue attendance records along the way.
A Macon, Ga. native, Aldean has sold more than 6 million copies of his 4 studio albums and topped the charts with 9 number 1 songs.

The opener,"Tattoos and Tequila," breaks it down into tattoos to remember, and tequila to forget.

If you liked Jason Aldean's three previous number one albums, you'll like "Rearview Town." He sticks to the winning formula that has brought him past success. The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little time »»»
