JASON ALDEAN’S “NIGHT TRAIN” CERTIFIED PLATINUM
Award winning entertainer Jason Aldean is wrapping up a record-breaking year with news of platinum certification for his latest album Night Train, which earned the status officially just four weeks after its Oct. 16 release. The album that Entertainment Weekly described as EPIC hit big out of the gate, debuting at No. one on the Billboard Top 200 and doubling the first week sales numbers of his previous album, the Double Platinum My Kinda Party.
Additionally, Aldean will join a lineup that includes Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Pitbull and Psy to ring in the New Year with a three song performance on Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2013. The legendary special airs Mon., Dec 31 beginning at 10:00pm ET on ABC.
Aldean’s second single off Night Train, "The Only Way I Know" feat. Luke Bryan and Eric Church, is currently climbing up the Top 15 on the Billboard chart. The album’s lead single, "Take A Little Ride," spent three weeks at No. one to become the longest running chart-topper of the year and Aldean's sixth consecutive No. one single.
The recently announced 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR will begin on Feb. 21 in Bossier City, LA and will include stops at least four sold-out stadium shows, with two nights at Boston's Fenway Park, Chicago's Wrigley Field and the University of Georgia's Sanford Stadium already on the books.
