Jason Aldean released his latest project, Old Boots, New Dirt (Broken Bow Records) on Oct. 7, and the album is projected to sell 280,000 to 300,000 units in its first week, according to Billboard.
If Aldean does sell close to 300,000 units, he would have the biggest-selling week of any Country artist in 2014, topping Brantley Gilbert‘s Just As I Am, which sold 211,000 units during its debut week in May, and Eric Church‘s The Outsiders, which sold 288,000 units upon its release in February.
Old Boots, New Dirt could post the second biggest sales week of any genre this year, trailing Coldplay‘s Ghost Stories which sold 383,000 for the week ending May 25, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Aldean’s previous album, 2012’s Night Train, sold 409,000 units in its first week.
The singer-songwriter held an album release party, hosted by iHeartRadio, at the iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles this week. The one-hour event was hosted by Ben and Matt from KNIX in Phoenix. Aldean performed several songs, including hits “My Kinda Party” and his latest, “Burnin’ It Down” from his new album.
