JASON ALDEAN SCORES FIRST THREE CAREER GRAMMY NOMINATIONS

"Tattoos On This Town" Becomes Fourth No. One Off MY KINDA PARTY and
Eighth Career No One Hit For Aldean

NASHVILLE, TENN – Dec. 1, 2011 – Multi-PLATINUM Country rocker Jason Aldean snagged his first ever GRAMMY nominations last night, and tied for the most nods of any country artist with three in the categories of Best Country Album for MY KINDA PARTY, Best Country Solo Performance for “Dirt Road Anthem” and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Don't You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson.

“I was totally stunned last night, and it all happened so fast. I was feelin' a pretty big adrenaline rush from our performance with Luda, and then to be told we had three nominations was just crazy. We were flying pretty high all night…there was definitely some celebrating on the flight back to Nashville," says Aldean. "That 'Album' nomination is what artists dream of their whole career. And then for both the duet with Kelly and 'Dirt Road' to get some recognition, which were both different kinds of songs for us this year, it's just incredible."

Nominations were announced during the one-hour GRAMMY Nominations Concert LIVE!! special last night, where Aldean got a standing ovation for his performance of the DOUBLE PLATINUM, No. 1 hit “Dirt Road Anthem.” He was joined by fellow Georgia native Ludacris who re-wrote a verse of the fan-favorite song earlier this year.

Additionally, Aldean has the No. one song in the country this week as “Tattoos on This Town” moves into the top spot on the Mediabase chart to become the eighth No. one of his career. The fourth release off the CMA Album of the Year, MY KINDA PARTY, “Tattoos on This Town” marks the album’s fourth consecutive No. one single. Aldean also claims the top selling country album of the year.

Aldean recently wrapped his 2011 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR which sold out more than 50 arenas and amphitheatres across the nation this year and smashed several venue attendance records. The 2012 leg of the MY KINDA PARTY TOUR will pick up Jan. 20 in Greenville, SC with special guest Luke Bryan.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
