JASON ALDEAN’S “JOHNNY CASH” FLIES UP THE CHARTS WITH OVERWHELMING RESPONSE FROM COUNTRY RADIO
Critics Praise Aldean’s Live Show Calling Him A “Hard Act To Follow”
NASHVILLE, TN – Apr 18, 2007 – If the lead single off rising country music star Jason Aldean’s second album is any indication of success, the ACM Top New Male Vocalist need not worry about a sophomore slump. “The rocking, guitar-driven track titled “Johnny Cash” is the fastest rising single of Aldean’s career to date and is igniting a fire with country radio listeners across the country.” Currently, the single is at #21 on the chart and climbing at a record pace.
“It’s been a long time since I have heard such a lightning rod song. It’s an instant smash.”
Joel Burke, KYGO/ Denver
“All you have to do is see how Jason Aldean’s audience worships him to understand that he is a major force with the young side of Country. This kid appears to be on the fast track to stardom…”
Gregg Swedberg, KEEY/ Minneapolis
I don’t give quotes, but with three HIT singles to his credit and a GREAT live show…this guy is a STAR!”
Mike Moore, KWJJ/Portland
Aldean has been perfecting his live show out on the road with superstar group Rascal Flatts and singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley this spring garnering attention from music critics nationwide.
“Aldean sounded a whole lot like someone who can hang with Nashville’s big boys and girls.”
Richmond Times Dispatch
“He brought cheers almost as enthusiastic as those the headliners received. In fact, Aldean’s energy was hard to follow…”
Aldean’s sophomore album – RELENTLESS – hits stores May 29 and follows on the heels of his self-titled PLATINUM debut, which spawned three chart-topping radio hits, “Hicktown” (#9), “Why” (#1) and “Amarillo Sky” (#4). Aldean is currently nominated for two Academy of Country Music Awards (Song of the Year, Video of the Year) both for “Amarillo Sky.”
