With more than seven million records sold and 10 No. one hits under his belt, entertainer Jason Aldean recently released one of 2012's most buzzed about new albums, NIGHT TRAIN. Entertainment Weekly calls Aldean's delivery on the album "epic," and Billboard points to the singer pushing the limits to move his "sound forward sonically, vocally and lyrically." NIGHT TRAIN's first single, "Take A Little Ride," has already had a three-week reign at No. one and set multiple sales and radio airplay records, and the 15-song collection goes on to cover plenty of turf.
Aldean has sold out each of the shows on his MY KINDA PARTY TOUR – often in minutes the day they go on sale. He has broken over 40 venue attendance records and the tour has gone on to sell an unparalleled 1.9 million tickets. He also recently sold out the first stadium show of his career.
His last album, MY KINDA PARTY, was the top-selling country album of 2011 and the fifth-best seller across all genres. It spawned five consecutive No. one hits including the TRIPLE PLATINUM "Dirt Road Anthem" and the crossover smash "Don’t You Wanna Stay" feat. Kelly Clarkson. Last year Aldean also won his first two Country Music Association awards, with MY KINDA PARTY securing the coveted Album of the Year trophy.
Even at the elite level he now occupies, he continues to push the envelope and himself. Most likely driven by the ups and downs of his journey in the music industry, Aldean still has a desire to win over any remaining non-believers still out there.
"I've always kind of felt like I had something to prove," he says. "It's what keeps me hungry."
That hunger translates into a high-intensity live show and his much-anticipated fifth album NIGHT TRAIN that has no filler.
