Aldean sets more records

Sunday, July 14, 2013 – Jason Aldean notched two more venue attendance records this weekend at Fenway Park breaking Paul McCartney's single night record and The Dave Matthews Band's two-night record previously set in 2006.

Fans snatched up more than 70,000 tickets in less than an hour and packed the ballpark on Friday and Saturday nights as Aldean made history as the first country artist to play Fenway.

"I heard we also set a new all time record for beer sales," joked Aldean. "They drank Boston dry...it was wild." Aldean told the crowd on Friday that he was excited to play Fenway because he was a Sox fan growing up.

Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett also played the shows.

The 2013 Night Train Tour has sold out every show so far this year and continues next week at Wrigley Field in Chicago on July 20.

The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt CD review - 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 »»»
