Jason’s album, ‘9,’ reached No. One on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this week, earning him his sixth consecutive No. One debut. The album had the most physical sales and landed at No. Two on Billboard’s Top 200 all-genre chart.
Before 9’s anticipated release Aldean landed on notable lists including Billboard, Entertainment Weekly and New York Times “Most Anticipated Albums of Fall” and now reviews of affirmation prove ‘9’ “showcases Aldean at peak swagger,” (Rolling Stone).
“Aldean’s latest is an ambitious set that blends hard-charging anthems like the lead single ‘We Back’ with good-natured drinking songs, salutes to rural living, tender love songs and pensive explorations on life.” – Billboard
“Even as the music industry moves more and more to a singles-driven approach, Aldean still sees the value in a full 16-song album…his style of arena Country rock.” – Associated Press
“Aldean pays homage to the arena-ready country-rock that built his career (‘We Back,’ ‘Dirt We Were Raised On,’ ‘Tattoos and Tequila’), embraces pop-leaning production (‘Got What I Got,’ ‘Keeping It Small Town’) and country storytelling (‘I Don’t Drink Anymore’).” – USA Today
“Hard-strumming tales of heartbreak, small towns, good ol’ boys and boots that are far from spotless.” – New York Times
“The new album seems to cover where we last left off on REARVIEW TOWN.” – Entertainment Tonight
