Jason Aldean's newest single 'Burnin' It Down' has been certified platinum after only nine weeks, making it the fastest-selling single of 2014 so far.

Aldean has said that the song has a different feel for him, but the fact that the single has been sitting at No. 1 on the Hot Country chart since its release shows that his fans don't mind mixing things up.

“We definitely got a few sideways looks and some raised eyebrows when we released this thing,” he says. “It's so awesome that my fans trust that I have a pretty good ear for the kinds of songs they will like and that they follow me to new places with each album. I couldn't be happier with all the excitement around the new music … it definitely feels like we've got something pretty cool happening going into album release."

Aldean's upcoming album 'Old Boots, New Dirt' is set for release on Oct. 7. It is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.

“With this new album, it’s definitely the same old me. But, I like to mix things up and try new sounds and go into territory I’ve never explored before, so I do a little bit of that too,” he says. “That’s why I named the album ‘Old Boots, New Dirt’ … I’m almost 10 years into this crazy ride, but in a lot of ways, I feel like I’m just gettin’ started.”
