Three-time and reigning ACM “Entertainer Of The Year” Jason Aldean holds down the top spot on both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles charts for a second consecutive week marking his 20th career No. One single, “You Make It Easy,” which becomes the first Country song released in 2018 to be certified GOLD by the RIAA.
After “shaking things up on the radio” (USA TODAY) with his eighth studio album REARVIEW TOWN‘s (Broken Bow Records) lead single, Aldean continues the momentum with the release of “Drowns the Whiskey” featuring Miranda Lambert.
“The way fans and radio have responded to this record has been really cool for me,” said Aldean. “‘Whiskey’ has always been a favorite of mine, but when Miranda came in and knocked out her parts in only a couple takes, I knew it was special.”
Written by Brandon Kinney, Jeff Middleton and Josh Thompson, “Drowns the Whiskey” is remarkably understated in its arrangement, but it’s saturated in well-worn emotions. The lost love lament has already been dubbed as a standout off REARVIEW TOWN as the “the contemporary honky-tonk track” (NPR) shows how Aldean “employs straightforward classic Country melodicism,” (Rolling Stone).
