Jason Aldean Takes ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ to No. 1
Jason Aldean picks up his seventh career No. 1 this week with the Colt Ford/Brantley Gilbert-penned 'Dirt Road Anthem.' The new chart-topper for Aldean marks the third consecutive single to hit No. 1 off his plantinum-selling 'My Kinda Party' album. Previous No. 1 hits from the album include the title track and the Kelly Clarkson duet 'Don't You Wanna Stay.'
"We definitely knew when we recorded this song, we'd turn some heads," Aldean says in a press release. "Thankfully, when they turned, they also started nodding along! 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!"
'Dirt Road Anthem' also tops the Country Digital Singles chart again this week, having sold over 1.3 million singles to date.
Aldean plans on releasing at least another song or two off his 'My Kinda Party' album, great contenders being the Josh Thompson-penned 'Church Pew or Bar Stool' or the Thomas Rhett-penned 'I Ain't Ready to Quit.'
