Jason Aldean Reflects on ACM Nomination

My Kinda Party Is Up for Album of the Year

Jason Aldean is up for six trophies at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards and none, perhaps, is more special than his nod for Album of the Year. My Kinda Party has been critically lauded and commercially successful thanks to a couple of out-of-the-norm hits, including "Don't You Wanna Stay" with Kelly Clarkson and the rap-laden "Dirt Road Anthem."

In an exclusive video, Jason says taking risks is just part of the process for him. "We went off in a little different direction on this album," he says. "Either it works and it works big or it doesn't and it's back to the drawing board."

Jason will compete in the Album of the Year category with Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum and Eric Church.

The 47th annual ACM Awards take place Sunday (April 1) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The show will air at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
