Broken Bow Records artist Jason Aldean was recently recognized as the Top Male Country Artist in the history of the RIAA’s Digital Gold & Platinum Awards. Aldean has garnered more than 21.5 million cumulative RIAA Digital Single certifications, counting song downloads and on-demand streams. The RIAA® Gold® and Platinum® Awards program was launched in 1958, and first awarded to LP recordings but later expanded to include cassette tapes, CDs, digital tracks, digital albums, and ringtones.

“On behalf of myself and my RIAA colleagues, we are delighted to recognize Jason Aldean for this prestigious honor,” said RIAA Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman. “We congratulate Broken Bow Records and Jason on this singular achievement and look forward to many more years of great country music to come.”

“This is such a huge honor, and one that everyone on my team earned together,” said Aldean. “I love country music, and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else…there was never a Plan B for me. I can’t thank the RIAA or country music fans enough for helping us get to this level…it’s unbelievable!”

Aldean’s latest single, “Burnin’ It Down,” sits at No. 35 on MusicRow‘s CountryBreakout Chart.
