Nashville, TN – Dec. 14, 2011 – GRAMMY-nominated country rocker Jason Aldean ends the biggest year of his career with his DOUBLE PLATINUM fourth record MY KINDA PARTY as the top-selling country album of 2011. The CMA Album of the Year, MY KINDA PARTY was also named iTunes’ “Country Album of the Year” and came in at No. four on Billboard’s all-genre Year End Top 200 Albums chart.

"When we did our annual holiday party last week, we had more to be thankful for and celebrate than we ever have before. It's really cool to be experiencing some of this stuff with a lot of the same guys who have been with me since I started in 2005. We're definitely a family, and that has made the whole experience even more special," says Aldean. "It's been the most incredible year, and I'm lookin' forward to some quiet time in the woods this Christmas, so I can really just spend some time reflecting on how much we accomplished and how grateful I am for all the support that the fans and my peers in the music business have given me."

With industry awards recognition having eluded him in the past, this year Aldean was showered with nominations, winning two CMA Awards for Album of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “Don’t You Wanna Stay” feat. Kelly Clarkson, sweeping the ACA awards with six wins including Artist of the Year and earning the “Breakthrough Award” at the Billboard Touring Awards where he beat out pop sensations Katy Perry and Rihanna with data based on ticket sales and Billboard Boxscore’s top tours of the year. Aldean claimed nearly 20 total award show nominations this year including three for the 2012 GRAMMYs as well as his first Entertainer of the Year nods at both the CMA Awards and ACM Awards.

Additionally, Aldean dominated the radio charts with three consecutive No. one singles this year, bringing his career total to eight No. ones when his most recent release, “Tattoos on This Town,” reached the summit. Aldean also enjoyed pop crossover success with “Don’t You Wanna Stay” feat. Kelly Clarkson reaching No. three on the AC chart and “Dirt Road Anthem” climbing into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This year Aldean‘s MY KINDA PARTY TOUR played to over one million fans and broke several venue attendance records, selling out more than 50 arenas and amphitheaters in advance.
