Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party Certified Platinum

Jason Aldean’s fourth album, My Kinda Party, has been certified platinum for shipments of 1 million copies. He released the album in November, with the title track as its first single. The album’s current single is “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with pop star Kelly Clarkson. With the platinum certification, Aldean’s career sales have reached 5 million. He will launch his 2011 My Kinda Party tour on Friday (Jan. 21) in Little Rock, Ark., with guests Eric Church and the JaneDear Girls. “I just can’t say enough about country music fans and the amount of loyalty they have for their favorite artists,” said Aldean. “To think that a million people already bought this record is hard for me to get my head around. And 5 million since I started? No way! I am so grateful to them for giving me the opportunity to play music every night.”
