CONGRATS to BBR (BROKEN BOW RECORDS) SVP JON LOBA, SVP/Promo CARSON JAMES, VP/Promo LEE ADAMS, and their staff as “Dirt Road Anthem,” moves to this week’s #1 spot on the MEDIABASE Country Singles Chart.
On the sales side, "Dirt Road Anthem," is ALDEAN's third consecutive Platinum release off the album "My Kinda Party," with over 1.3 million singles sold to date.
"We definitely knew when we recorded this song, we'd turn some heads. Thankfully, when they turned, they also started nodding along," said ALDEAN.. "It's been a great song to play live and also to be able to do some experimenting with for tv performances and things like that. I love being able to put out a big ballad like our duet with KELLY and come back with something a little different the next time. I don't want anyone to ever think they've got me figured out exactly."
In other ALDEAN news, his show in ORANGE BEACH, AL on THURSDAY, JULY 14th, which was cut short, has been rescheduled. Opening acts STONEY CREEK RECORDS duo THOMPSON SQUARE and RCA NASHVILLE artist CHRIS YOUNG competed their sets before storms forced ALDEAN to cut his set short.
ALDEAN will play in ORANGE BEACH again on SEPTEMBER 25th, honoring all tickets to the JULY 14th show. THOMPSON SQUARE will do another performance as well.
