Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party Goes Double Platinum

Posted by Keri Sanders on 09/13/2011

Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party has only been out for 10 months and already it has been certified Double Platinum by RIAA. It is the most popular country album of 2011, selling over 2 million copies.  Three consecutive singles off of the album have gone to No. 1. Each of those singles has reached Platinum status, with the latest, "Dirt Road Anthem," going Double Platinum. 
"It's always been a big dream of mine to have Platinum  albums, but this Double Platinum thing snuck up on me," says Jason. "It is beyond anything I could have dreamed or expected. It takes a whole lot of people to make it happen…from songwriters to the label to radio to my band and road crew…I just can't tell you how thankful I am, and also how much respect I have for all the hard work that went into this project."
This year, Jason has received five nominations for the CMA Awards, which will air Nov. 9.  He has been nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Musical Event of the Year. 
"I've been working my tail off out on the road for years building my career, and up until last week, it sorta felt like if you hadn't been to one of the shows, maybe you didn't know what was happening," says Jason. "It feels like I've finally been invited to the party, and it feels incredible to have your friends and peers pat you on the back and recognize the work that's gone into the last year."
Jason's My Kinda Party Tour is continuing through November. For dates and ticket information, visit www.jasonaldean.com.
