JASON ALDEAN DRIVES “NIGHT TRAIN” TO NO. ONE
NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 23, 2013 – CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean pulls into the No. one spot on the Billboard chart in both the U.S. and Canada today with “Night Train,” the title track off his PLATINUM fifth album. “Night Train” was written by Neil Thrasher and Michael Dulaney and becomes Aldean’s 12th No. one single.
“When I first heard this song we were already done looking for material for this last record, but I just loved it and thought it was worth making room for,” said Aldean. “It seems so crazy to say that this is my 12th #1 – I promise you each one is just as sweet as the first one.”
The Macon, GA native recently announced plans to release the live concert film NIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA on Oct. 15. Filmed this past April at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium, the piece captures Aldean and a sold out crowd of over 66,000 fans making history with the first concert ever held “between the hedges.” A TackleBox Films production, the piece was produced by Shaun Silva, Ivan Dudensky and Don Lepore.
Aldean has three nominations for the Nov. 6 CMA Awards, including his third consecutive Entertainer of the Year nod. He is also up for Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “The Only Way I Know” feat. Luke Bryan and Eric Church.
