Jason Aldean stopped by MusicRow’s corporate world headquarters on 17th Ave. S. to say, “Thanks” and deliver a double platinum/2 million units sold plaque for his latest album, My Kinda Party.

“I still remember,” laughed Aldean, “my first-ever award was presented by MusicRow during its CRS party in 2006. It was a CountryBreakout Chart Award.”

Aldean’s star has been exploding. He set attendance records this past summer with his My Kinda Party tour which has been extended into 2012.

Aldean is also tied for the most CMA nominations with five nods for the 45th Annual Awards, including his first ever in the categories of Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. His current Top 20 single “Tattoos On This Town” is the fourth release off his double platinum album My Kinda Party and follows three consecutive platinum-certified and No. 1 hits for the disc. Aldean currently claims the top selling country album of the year.
