Jason Aldean Scores His Seventh #1 Hit Single With “Dirt Road Anthem”

Country
rocker Jason Aldean scores his seventh No. one song as “Dirt Road
Anthem” drives into the top slot on the Billboard Country Songs chart
this week.  The third consecutive PLATINUM release off Country’s
best-selling album of 2011, MY KINDA PARTY, the track also tops the
Country Digital Singles Chart again this week with over 1.3 million
singles sold to date.

“We definitely knew when we recorded
this song, we’d turn some heads.  Thankfully, when they turned, they
also started nodding along,” laughs Aldean.  “It’s been a great song to
play live and also to be able to do some experimenting with for tv
performances and things like that.  I love being able to put out a big
ballad like our duet with Kelly and come back with something a little
different the next time.   I don’t want anyone to ever think they’ve got
me figured out exactly!”

Simultaneously, Aldean’s duet with
pop powerhouse Kelly Clarkson “Don’t You Wanna Stay” continues to climb
the AC, Hot AC and Top 40 charts.  Both songs follow the success of the
lead single “My Kinda Party,” making this the third consecutive No. one
hit from Aldean’s fourth studio effort.

Aldean spent this last
week in Phoenix at the Major League Baseball’s All Star Week, where he
played in the Celebrity and Legends softball game and performed on
ESPN’s broadcast of the 2011 Homerun Derby.  He is also featured this
month in ESPN magazine’s celebrity series “Fans Like Us” with Justin
Timberlake, John Legend and more.  Click HERE to see behind the scenes
