Jason Aldean hosted a No. 1 party marking the success of his No. 1 hit “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” which he recorded with Kelly Clarkson, at the ASCAP building in Nashville, Wednesday (May 11).

The three writers of the song, Jason Sellers, Andy Gibson and Paul Jenkins, were also honored during the celebration. Kelly was unable to attend but a member of her management team was on hand to accept a plaque for her. Also in attendance was John Rich, who co-wrote Jason's first hit, “Hicktown.”

Jason told the assembled crowd that “the last two years have just been amazing,” and thanked the writers for penning his latest hit.
