NASHVILLE, TN – Oct. 20, 2014 – Jason Aldean’s previously sold out BURN IT DOWN TOUR will continue into 2015, and the smash hit that gave the red-hot tour its name is now No. one on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts. The two-time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” will kick off the next leg’s 23-city run presented by Live Nation on Feb. 12 in Greenville, SC with special guests Cole Swindell and Tyler Farr.

“We are coming off a big album release week, and we wanted to keep the momentum rolling and get this next leg of the tour announced,” Aldean said. “Cole and Tyler are two of the hottest up-and-coming artists out right now, and I really dig what they do in their live shows. They are also just great friends, so it’ll be cool to have them out and see what kind of trouble we can get into together.”
Critics around the country agree this is Aldean’s “most explosive tour ever” (Rolling Stone) and a “game changing run” (Billboard).

The certified PLATINUM single “Burnin’ It Down” became the fastest selling country single of 2014, holding the No. one position on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart for nine weeks. The track serves as the lead single off Aldean’s recently released sixth studio album OLD BOOTS, NEW DIRT, which debuted at No. one on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 chart, breaking the record for both first-day and first-week streams ever by a country album on Spotify.
To date, Aldean has sold over nine million albums and has taken 14 trips to No. one. Each of his albums has been certified PLATINUM and he has been officially recognized as the top digital male country artist in history with over 21.5 million in digital sales. Aldean’s upcoming tour follows a monumental first leg, which saw him play five stadium dates in addition to sold-out shows in the country’s biggest amphitheaters and arenas.
Breakout country artist and CMA Awards’ “New Artist of the Year” nominee Cole Swindell released his self-titled debut album earlier this year, claiming the title of highest selling country debut since 2011 and featuring Swindell’s latest single, “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” along with his first two consecutive No. one singles, the gold certified hit “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” and the platinum certified smash “Chillin’ It.”
Columbia Nashville artist Tyler Farr’s breakthrough debut album REDNECK CRAZY marked the biggest country debut of the year by a new male artist. Hailed as the “song of the summer” by The New York Times, the No. one, platinum-selling title-track “Redneck Crazy” and the Gold-certified hit, “Whiskey in My Water,” earned the Missouri native back-to-back No. ones.
