Multi-Platinum entertainer Jason Aldean brought together the Country music community, his team and family yesterday (8/10) to celebrate the success behind his 27th career No. One single “Trouble With A Heartbreak.” Hosted by BMI and ASCAP at Nashville’s “The Local,” Aldean treated the crowd to an acoustic performance of the haunting track, alongside artist/songwriter John Morgan and bandmates/songwriters Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy. Brett Beavers rounded out the songwriters being celebrated for the track off Aldean’s expansive 10th studio album MACON, GEORGIA (Macon Music/Broken Bow Records) which is available in its entirety at all digital retailers here.
“Trouble With A Heartbreak” spent three weeks at the top of the Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart and Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and serves as the first song since Taylor Swift’s “Mean,” over a decade ago, to re-enter the top position on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart. Aldean now has back-to-back multi-week chart toppers from MACON, GEORGIA as “Trouble With A Heartbreak” follows the multi-week Platinum No. One “If I Didn’t Love You” featuring Carrie Underwood, which earned ACM “Single of the Year” and iHeart “Country Song of the Year,” along with a GRAMMY nomination.
The three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” has learned a thing or two about the music he has made over the past 17 years, but as far as he’s come, Aldean always looks back home to Macon, Georgia. Both where he is from and how far he has taken his signature sound is reflected throughout his 10th studio album MACON, GEORGIA, as the expansive release “kicks off his career’s next era” (Tennessean) with 20 new tunes and 10 unheard live tracks showcasing everything he does. Aldean has bolstered 27 No. One hits, 15 billion streams and has sold more than 20 million albums. Notably, seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified PLATINUM or more and he has the most Top 10 song on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, more than any other artists, since making his chart debut in 2005. The recent CRS Humanitarian Award recipient created Wolf Moon Bourbon, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years offering a finish of caramel, oak and spice. Aldean is currently on the road with “one of the best concerts to see” (Star Tribune)as his ROCK N’ ROLL COWBOY TOUR featuring special guests Gabby Barrett, John Morgan and Dee Jay Silver, stops this weekend in Chicago, IL (8/12), Indianapolis, IN (8/13) and Detroit, MI (8/14). Additionally, Aldean will be joined by Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt and Chase Rice this fall for select dates. For more information, visit www.JasonAldean.com.
