Jason Aldean‘s new album “Old Boots, New Dirt” is the only country album in 2014 to go platinum! (Platinum = one million sold.) It’s also only the third album release this year to reach platinum status in all genres. Taylor Swift’s “1989” and Sam Smith’s “In the Lonely Hour” also sold over a million copies this year.
Naturally, the superstar was quick to thank his fans who have supported him since releasing his first single “Hicktown” back in 2005. “I couldn’t do it without the best country music fans in the world, who never stop believing in what I do and always follow me, even if I may take a creative left turn every now and then.”
All six of Jason’s studio albums have gone platinum with “Old Boots, New Dirt” reaching that status in only two months.
Jason is scheduled to perform “Just Gettin’ Started” tonight on the 2014 American Country Countdown Awards.
