Jason Aldean Removes Latest Album From Spotify

jason aldean slider 2014Jason Aldean‘s latest album, Old Boots, New Dirt, has been removed from Spotify, though the entertainer’s previous albums are still available on the popular digital music streaming outlet. Aldean’s label, Broken Bow Records, had no comment.

Old Boots, New Dirt thundered onto the charts in October with sales of 278K, the second most sales in one week for a Country album this year.

The move follows Taylor Swift‘s headline-making removal of her entire catalog from Spotify. The singer did not offer up her latest Big Machine Label Group release, 1989, to be streamed on the service. Swift’s 1989 became her third project to move one million units in its first week, making it the first million-selling album of 2014, and the first album to sell one million albums in its first week since Swift’s own 2012 release, Red.

It is worth noting that Broken Bow Records and Big Machine Label Group are independent label groups.

Both Aldean and Swift will be on the road in 2015 to promote their new releases. Aldean’s headlining Burnin’ It Down Tour will launch Feb. 12 in South Carolina, while Swift’s 1989 World Tour will begin in May in Japan.
