Jason Aldean Scores 4th Consecutive No. 1 Album on All-Genre Billboard Top 200 Chart

Jason Aldean had a good week.

In addition to winning his third consecutive ACM Award for Entertainer of the Year on April 15, Jason’s new album, Rearview Town, moved 183,000 equivalent units in its first week. Rearview Town marks the biggest debut for a country album in 2018, and secured Jason his fourth consecutive No. 1 album on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart. In addition, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

The 15-track offering was helmed by longtime producer Michael Knox and features a number of well-known songwriters, including Casey Beathard, Dallas Davidson, Jessi Alexander, David Lee Murphy and more.

“I think that obviously what got me to this point was recording the kind of music I like, and over the years we created our thing,” says Jason to NCD. “The way I’ve tried to describe this record is, on a lot of the albums before . . . you hear like a heavy rock influence, and on some it may be a little bit more of an R&B or hip-hop or whatever. And you’ve seen those scattered on a lot of the different records, and I think on this album, we kind of took all those and put them into one record.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
