The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has recognized country superstar Jason Aldean as the Top Male Country Artist in the history of RIAA’s digital Gold and Platinum awards. As of this date, Aldean has tallied over 21.5 million cumulative RIAA Digital Single Certifications, which include both country song downloads and on-demand streams.
“On behalf of myself and my RIAA colleagues, we are delighted to recognize Jason Aldean for this prestigious honor,” said RIAA Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman. “We congratulate Broken Bow Records and Jason on this singular achievement and look forward to many more years of great country music to come.”
"This is such a huge honor, and one that everyone on my team earned together," said Aldean. "I love country music, and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else…there was never a Plan B for me. I can't thank the RIAA or country music fans enough for helping us get to this level…it's unbelievable!"
Aldean’s current single, the smokin' hot “Burnin’ It Down” was ranked the top-selling single in the country as of last week in all genres of music, giving him his biggest career debut at country radio. His “Burn It Down 2014 Tour” has sold out five consecutive stadium dates, and he’ll be bringing his tour to the Sleep Train Amphitheater in Wheatland on Sept. 28. Opening acts on the tour are Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr.
