Jason Aldean has released four albums and 14 songs to radio in only six years. Only one of those failed to crack the Top 10 ('Relentless,' in 2008), and his current single, 'Tattoos on This Town,' is on its way to becoming his eighth straight No. 1 or No. 2 hit. It'd be unfair to call him a superstar in the making. The string of sold-out amphitheater shows and an Entertainer of the Year nomination at the CMA Awards are more than enough to remove the “in-the-making” tag.

This list of Jason Aldean's top songs takes into account chart position, single sales, Taste of Country staff opinions and reader feedback. The singer brings all these hits to his live show, and the most loyal fans sing back every single word to them all.


Jason Aldean Johnny Cash
10

'Johnny Cash'

From 'Relentless' (2007)

 
 

'Johnny Cash' kicks off our list of the Top 10 Jason Aldean Songs, and it was the first single from Aldean's 'Relentless' album. After three gold singles, this was the first to not make the sales certification. It did work to cement the singer's style, however. Fans had reason to wonder if he'd return to the style of 'Hicktown' after two ballads. The video for this song was popular, too. It featured Aldean, a sexy girl and a sexy car. The Georgia born singer seems to have a penchant for the Pontiac Trans Am, a ride that is also featured in the new 'Tattoos on This Town Video.'

 
Jason Aldean Dirt Road Anthem
9

'Dirt Road Anthem'

From 'My Kinda Party' (2010)

 
 

Deciding where to place 'Dirt Road Anthem' on this list of 10 Jason Aldean hits was difficult. One could argue it's the best on the list, or that it doesn't belong at all. It's certainly the biggest risk the singer has taken to date, and the success it had on radio and sales charts leave no doubts as to whether it paid off or not. Only time will tell if it has the staying power of some of Aldean's other well-known songs. If nothing else, he helped in furthering the careers of the hit's writers, Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford.

 
Jason Aldean Crazy Town
8

'Crazy Town'

From 'Wide Open' (2009)

 
 

'Crazy Town' only loses points for getting lost when the song 'My Kinda Party' was released as the debut single from the album 'My Kinda Party.' It's a great song, but it's the weakest of the group (which also includes 'She's Country'). 'Crazy Town' is also the only single that's not from the 'Relentless' album that failed to go gold or platinum, but it's a favorite at country bars nationwide. It also sounded great on his headlining tour this summer.

 
Jason Aldean Hicktown
7

'Hicktown'

From 'Jason Aldean' (2005)

 
 

Jason Aldean's debut single is still a song many of his most loyal fans look forward to hearing before any other at concerts. It barely cracked the Top 10, but it's probably the most important song of his career. He proved many radio programmers wrong with it. Many felt it was simply too redneck, and millions of fans disagreed Like he does on this track, the Georgia raised singer has consistently made use of childhood memories to create some of his best songs. 'Dirt Road Anthem' and 'Tattoos on This Town' from his 'My Kinda Party' album also pay tribute to his roots. He didn't write either of those songs but he did recognize the perfect fit for his style.

 
Jason Aldean Why
6

'Why'

From 'Jason Aldean' (2005)

 
 

This 2005 song was Aldean's first No. 1 hit, and he wouldn't have another for three years. It's an important song because it picked up fans that 'Hicktown' left behind. It also proved he could sing ballads, which -- as Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban will attest -- is an important part of becoming a superstar. 'Why' paved the way for No. 1 hits like 'The Truth' and 'Don't You Wanna Stay' with Kelly Clarkson, and it rests comfortably on our list of the Top 10 Jason Aldean Songs.

 
Jason Aldean Amarillo Sky
5

'Amarillo Sky'

From 'Jason Aldean' (2005)

 
 

'Amarillo Sky' is a quirky Jason Aldean song because it's the only one that makes a statement instead of just describing a party, relationship or way of life. This midtempo hit about the struggles of farmers did as much as any other to marry the singer to his fans. It's another song that draws far more passion than chart and sales figure would suggest. A great video helped make this Aldean's third straight hit.

 
Jason Aldean My Kinda Party
4

'My Kinda Party'

From 'My Kinda Party' (2010)

 
 

The lead single from Jason Aldean's most successful album makes our list of the top Jason Aldean songs because it let fans and industry folk know that 'Wide Open' wasn't just a flash in the pan. The video was one of his biggest and most played to date, and the song set the tone for the album. There isn't an Aldean fan out there who can resist turning the volume up when 'My Kinda Party' begins.

 
Jason Aldean Don't You Wanna Stay
3

'Don't You Wanna Stay' Feat. Kelly Clarkson

From 'My Kinda Party' (2010)

 
 

Jason Aldean fans are somewhat split on this song, although the appearance of Kelly Clarkson led to the biggest sales numbers of his career. It's a soft and tender ballad with a pop star. That's not something lovers of 'My Kinda Party' and 'Hicktown' were looking for, but it's probably the biggest reason the industry is beginning to recognize Aldean with award nominations. Both singers show great vocal control on this hit, one of the best of 2011.

 
Jason Aldean She's Country
2

'She's Country'

From 'Wide Open' (2009)

 
 

The three singles on 'Relentless' were dips in the road for Jason Aldean, but the first single from 'Wide Open' changed the trajectory of his career. 'She's Country' re-energized fans who might have turned their ears away from the more introspective singles like 'Laughed Until We Cried' and 'Relentless.' It's a great song that still sounds as good coming through the speakers today as it did in late 2008 or early 2009.

 
Jason Aldean Wide Open
1

'Big Green Tractor'

From 'Wide Open' (2009)

 
 

By every measurable indicator, this is the biggest song of Jason Aldean's career. It spent four weeks at No. 1 and is closing in on two million digital downloads. Really, the only people who could utter a bad word about the song are the owners of Kubota tractors. Somehow 'Big Orange Tractor' wouldn't have flowed so effortlessly from the superstar's lips. If you weren't keeping track: Each of Aldean's four studio albums had three songs on the Top 10 Jason Aldean songs list, except 'Relentless,' which only landed one ('Johnny Cash').
