Monday, May 21, 2012
– Georgia native Jason Aldean played a two-night stand of sold out shows at Atlanta Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood on Friday and Saturday, drawing almost 40,000 fans.
Aldean kicked off the summer leg of the 2012 My Kinda Party tour on Thursday night in Birmingham, Ala.
"I've never felt the kind of energy that the fans from the ATL brought this weekend," said Aldean. "I didn't think it could get any wilder, and then when Luda came out, the place came totally unglued.

Aldean is currently celebrating his fifth consecutive number one song with Fly Over States.

Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little time »»»
