Jason Aldean’s ‘My Kinda Party’ Is No. 1 Album!
Jason Aldean has taken his latest album, 'My Kinda Party,' to the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart this week, just edging out Taylor Swift's 'Speak Now,' which drops to No. 2. Ironically, 14 weeks ago, Jason's album debuted in the No. 2 position, just behind Taylor!
'My Kinda Party' has sold over one million copies and is Jason's second to top the country chart. His first was the 2007 disc, 'Relentless.' The album's latest single, 'Don't You Wanna Stay,' featuring Kelly Clarkson, is currently in the Top 10.
Also making a strong showing on the country album chart this week is the debut from the JaneDear Girls. The disc debuts at No. 10, having sold more than 10,000 copies. The duo are among the nominees for the 2011 ACM Top Vocal Duo award.
Americana and alt-country music had a pretty good week as the Civil Wars album, 'Barton Hollow,' debuts at No. 12 on the multi-genre Billboard 200. It is also the No. 1 album on the digital chart for the week.
Elsewhere on the country albums chart, Lady Antebellum are at No. 3 with 'Need You Now,' now in its 54th week and having sold over three million copies. Taylor's 'Speak Now' has also surpassed the three million mark.
