Jason Aldean’s latest album New Dirt, Old Boots is the only country album released this year to be certified platinum. This comes less than eight weeks after the album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart with over 280,000 copies sold. Aldean is also only one of three artists across all genres to release an album that went platinum in 2014 (the other two being Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande).

“We put so much time and passion into choosing the best songs for this album, and this brings a lot of hard work full circle for me,” Aldean says. “It’s like Christmas came early! I couldn’t do it without the best country music fans in the world, who never stop believing in what I do and always follow me, even if I may take a creative left turn every now and then.”

Additionally, the album had the fourth biggest debut week in all genres this year, selling more than 278,000 copies in its premiere week. Its first single, “Burnin’ It Down,” was Aldean’s first tune to ever top the all-genre digital songs chart.
