Jason Aldean Earns 19th No. 1 With ‘Any Ol Barstool’
The multi-platinum artist and back-to-back ACM Entertainer of the Year watched the single top the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week. It's the third consecutive chart topper from Aldean's latest album They Don't Know.
"'Any Ol Barstool' brought that classic country vibe I grew up on, so it’s pretty cool to me that my fans and country radio took it to No. 1," Aldean says. "We’ve worked up big moments around ‘Barstool’ and ’They Don’t Know’ and it’s made me even more ready to get back out on the road and see the fans."
Aldean is already looking ahead — the title track of his album, "They Don't Know," will be the next country radio single. It will be the centerpiece of his They Don't Know Tour, which launches in Ohio Apr. 27 with support from guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver.
"When I first heard the song, it really made me think about how rural communities can come across misunderstood. It's a classic scenario in movies, a Hollywood producer films in small towns and packs in every stereotype you can imagine," notes Aldean. "This song wraps all those feelings together perfectly and basically says not to judge a book by its cover. I relate to that growing up in the backwoods of Georgia.”
Aldean has risen to become one of country music's megastars, selling over 14 million albums. He will be part of a new exhibit at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, opening May 27, and will headline the Taste of Country Music Festival in June.
