Jason Aldean Keeps ‘Tractor’ on Top
Jason Aldean has plowed his way to a fourth consecutive week at No. 1 on the country charts this week with 'Big Green Tractor,' And that makes him the only artist to stay at the top spot for four straight weeks in more than 18 months. The last time it happened was with Brad Paisley's 'Letter to Me' in February 2008.
But Jason also rewrites the country-music history books this week as the first country artist to ever take the No. 1 spot on Billboard all-genre Ringscan chart. 'Big Green Tractor' tops the ringtones of heavy hitters Jay Z, Drake, Mariah Carey and Black Eyed Peas.
"This is crazy," says the rockin' Georgia native. "The guys I've always looked up to, my heroes, are the ones who are supposed to be sitting up there at the top. Man, I feel like I'm constantly thanking country radio and the fans, but they truly are a huge part of the reason I'm having such a great year. It motivates me to go out and work harder than I ever have before. The fans and all their energy and support are fueling everything I'm doing right now. It feels incredible!"
'Big Green Tractor' is the also second track from Jason's 'Wide Open' album to be certified gold for digital sales. The song is among those featured on his just-released 'Wide Open Live and More' DVD.
