Jason Aldean makes history with ‘Rearview Town’

Aldean earns fourth consecutive No. 1 on Billboard’s All-Genre Top 200 Chart

Three-time and reigning ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean’s hard-charging eighth studio album Rearview Town (Broken Bow Records) has earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart. Becoming only the second country act to score four consecutive chart-toppers in history, Aldean draws 183,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release making it the biggest country debut of 2018.

As he “savors his ACM Entertainer of the Year hat trick” (Hits Daily Double), fans and critics rally behind Rearview Town for its “relatable premise,” (Huffington Post).

Aldean’s sure-footedness has helped define the genre’s 21st century, which plays into his 19 No. 1 hits, more than 15 million total album sales and dozens of sold-out stadium shows. Continuing with that momentum, the new music follows Aldean’s last three albums that each bowed at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and all seven of his previous LPs have achieved Platinum certification or better. Aldean’s wide-open approach has made him a perennial live-show favorite for the format as he has headlined the biggest stadiums in the United States where “Aldean and his band rock hard and precise” (Houston Chronicle) and this year, his High Noon Neon Tour will launch on May 10th.
