JASON ALDEAN NAMED TOP DIGITAL MALE COUNTRY ARTIST IN HISTORY BY THE RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA
Nashville,
TN – Aug. 4, 2014 – The Recording Industry Association of America
(RIAA) has recognized Jason Aldean as the Top Male Country Artist in the
history of RIAA’s Digital Gold & Platinum Awards, the music
industry’s premier program for celebrating artistic achievement in the
marketplace. 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 and 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.”  
“This
is such a huge honor, and one that everyone on my team earned
together,” said Aldean. “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!”
Last
week, Aldean’s smoking new single “Burnin’ It Down” ranked as the top
selling single in the country in all genres and marked his biggest
career debut ever at country radio. Aldean just rounded out a string of
five massively successful BURN IT DOWN 2014 TOUR stadium dates, and the
tour will continue on with notable upcoming stops including two sold out
nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
