Jason Aldean Rocked His #CMTAOTY Performance


The CMT Artists of The Year awards have only been around since 2010, but Jason Aldean has been lauded “one of the biggest influences in Country music” each and every year.

The artists were chosen based on their impact in country music through massive radio airplay, chart-topping album sales and millions of individual downloads of their current singles. Additionally, these acts have sold out concert tours and, collectively, their videos have received hundreds of millions of streams.

If that doesn’t describe Jason Aldean‘s year (and career) nothing does. He recently celebrated his 10 millionth record sold and his first single off of Old Boots, New Dirt,Burnin’ It Down” went Platinum in just 9 weeks.

For his CMTAOTY performance, Aldean chose to play his latest single, “Just Gettin’ Started,” which is a scary thought considering the amount of success he’s had in such a short period of time.

Next summer, Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour will collide with Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival for 10 stadium shows.
