No one can deny the year that Jason Aldean has had. Riding high on the success of the No. 1 country album of 2011, My Kinda Party, he strutted into the new year with a fresh leg of the My Kinda Party Tour and immediately started breaking attendance records, both his own and those held by the venues. He sold out his first stadium show at Ohio’s Crew Stadium on that tour, then went on to sell out two shows at Boston’s Fenway Park and one at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium for his upcoming 2013 Night Train Tour, which will also hit Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
Jason also spent a good bit of time at the top of the charts with his new album, Night Train, debuting at
No. 1 on both the country and overall charts, and adding two more No. 1 singles, “Fly Over States” and “Take a Little Ride,” to his growing catalog of hits. He also took home trophies at the ACM, CMT and Billboard awards shows. And it was hard to turn on the TV without seeing Jason, whether it was his first performance on the Grammy Awards, a new Mountain Dew commercial or a visit to the national talk shows.
Of course, we’d like to take a little credit for putting Jason on the cover of the March 16 issue of Country Weekly, but we know we’re just among the throngs of fans watching this star continue to shine.
