The RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA (RIAA) has recognized JASON ALDEAN as the top male Country digital artist in the history of RIAA's digital GOLD and PLATINUM awards. To date, ALDEAN has tallied over 21.5 million cumulative RIAA digital single certifications counting song downloads and on-demand streams.
"On behalf of myself and my RIAA colleagues, we are delighted to recognize JASON ALDEAN for this prestigious honor," said RIAA Chairman/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."
ALDEAN added, "This is such an honor, and one that everyone on my team earned together. 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!"
