Three-time and reigning ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean’s hard-charging eighth studio album REARVIEW TOWN (Broken Bow Records) has earned the No. One position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart. Becoming only the second Country act to score four consecutive chart-toppers in history, Aldean draws 183,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release making it the biggest Country debut of 2018.
As he “savors his ACM Entertainer of the Year hat trick” (Hits Daily Double), fans and critics rally behind REARVIEW TOWN for its “relatable premise,” (Huffington Post).
“It’s utterly serious in tone, as if enjoying weekend downtime to the fullest – in an almost nihilistic fashion – is a moral obligation, and it’s another fine example of the empathetic approach Aldean has taken toward working-class life and Middle America.” – Rolling Stone
“The record is full of the same swaggering, emotion-driven country rock that earned him a spot as one of the top live performers in the current Country landscape.” – UPROXX
“…it often feels as though Aldean is reaching for very common comforts to get his way through very specific pain. And this is, of course, Country music’s great power.” – The Atlantic
“The album is a straight-up shot of what has kept Aldean fans rocking through his previous seven studio albums – high-octane songs ready-made for his arena and stadium shows.” – PEOPLE
“Surprising fans for almost a decade after his genre-bending breakthrough smash ‘She’s Country,’ Aldean still revels in surprising fans and pushing the boundaries of Country music.” – USA Today
“Twelve years after Aldean helped recenter the genre, these sounds aren’t novel in Country music. This is Aldean’s world; he inhabits it more convincingly than most.” – Paste
