The Multi-Platinum Entertainer Earns Most Chart-toppers On Billboard Country Airplay Chart And Concurrently Announces “They Don’t Know” As Next Single
Jason Aldean has taken his 19th single to #1 as “Any Ol Barstool” lands at the top of the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week. Serving as the third consecutive chart-topper off his seventh studio album They Don’t Know, “the soundtrack of heartache” (Billboard) also marks Aldean’s first #1 since claiming the coveted ACM Entertainer of the Year award back-to-back, making him one of only nine artists in history to achieve this accomplishment.
“‘Any Ol Barstool’ brought that classic country vibe I grew up on, so it’s pretty cool to me that my fans and country radio took it to #1,” says Aldean. “We’ve worked up big moments around ‘Barstool’ and ’They Don’t Know’ and it’s made me even more ready to get back out on the road and see the fans.”
Aldean keeps the momentum moving as he announces the title-track of his Platinum album They Don’t Know, will serve as his next single as he returns to the road next week with his Jason Aldean: They Don’t Know Tour, launching in Toledo, OH, on April 27th. “Packed with stadium-size songs and arena-ready hooks” (The Boston Globe), Aldean is sure to bring that same energy to the stage while boasting support from special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver.
“When I first heard the song it really made me think about how rural communities can come across misunderstood. It’s a classic scenario in movies, a Hollywood producer films in small towns and packs in every stereotype you can imagine,” noted Aldean. “This song wraps all those feelings together perfectly and basically says not to judge a book by its cover. I relate to that growing up in the backwoods of Georgia.”
