The Monster Hit Also Holds Steady at No. One on iTunes
NASHVILLE, TN – Feb 28, 2011 – Country music superstar Jason Aldean’s powerful duet with Kelly Clarkson “Don’t You Wanna Stay” reached the top spot on the Billboard Country Singles chart today becoming the ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee’s sixth career No. one. The second release off his PLATINUM album MY KINDA PARTY also continues to hold strong in the No. one position on iTunes’ Top 10 Country Songs.
“It’s a pretty killer birthday present, that’s for sure! My family and friends are going to have to work VERY VERY hard to beat what country radio and the fans have already given me today,” laughed Aldean. “On a serious note, I am really proud of this song. Anybody who says they wouldn’t be nervous to try and go note for note with a vocalist like Kelly Clarkson is straight up lying to you! So, I do feel a huge sense of accomplishment to have pulled it off in the studio and on live tv with her, and then for everyone else to have responded to it the way they did…it’s just incredible, and you never take those things for granted.”
Aldean’s MY KINDA PARTY TOUR is sold out again this weekend in Charlottesville, Va., Lexington, Ky. and Toledo, Ohio. For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit www.jasonaldean.com.
