“Dirt Road Anthem” Spends Fifth Consecutive Week as Top Selling Ringtone in All Genres
NASHVILLE, TN – Jun. 23, 2011 – Country rocker Jason Aldean’s PLATINUM certified album MY KINDA PARTY has earned the No. one position on Billboard’s Country Albums chart this week for the 10th time this year and remains the best selling country album of 2011 so far.
While MY KINDA PARTY holds strong on the albums chart, the album’s current Top 10 single “Dirt Road Anthem” simultaneously claims the top spot on the all-genre ringtone chart for the fifth consecutive week and on the Country Digital Singles chart. To date, the track has sold over 977,000 digital downloads of its original version and recent remix featuring Ludacris combined.
Aldean’s fan-favorite track “Dirt Road Anthem” is the third single off MY KINDA PARTY, which has already spawned two smash hits (“Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson and “My Kinda Party”). The album hit big out of the gate, setting a record as the highest first week debut by a male artist in four years, and the now PLATINUM disc has remained planted at the top of the charts since its Nov. release.
