Jason Aldean‘s “Take A Little Ride” is already off to a strong start, entering the Billboard country songs chart at No. 19 this week to become his highest career single debut. Additionally, it’s been added by 116 radio stations and has Billboard predicting that it will be the biggest debut ever for a digital song by a male country artist. The track is projected to hit 200,000 downloads on Wednesday’s chart.
Of his recent success, Aldean couldn’t be more excited and happy. “I am honestly just blown away,” said Aldean. “I had a whole year of ‘firsts’ last year…things like my first arena tour selling out and taking home my first CMA awards, but I still feel like I’ve got a long way to go, so having two more ‘firsts’ come this week is really exciting for me. I love this single, and there are 14 more songs that I’m really proud of coming right behind it!”
On the heels of his new single, Aldean continues to sell out huge venues in seconds, selling out Cleveland’s 20,000-seat Blossom Music Center (9/7) in only 30 seconds. Other quick sell outs include Dallas, St. Louis & Indianapolis. He has sold out every show this year, including his first stadium in Columbus, Ohio.
