Aldean’s double-platinum fourth record, My Kinda Party, the current CMA and Billboard “Album of the Year,” was the top-selling country album of 2011 and the #5 top-seller in all of music, spawning five consecutive #1 hits, including the triple-platinum “Dirt Road Anthem” and the crossover smash “Don’t You Wanna Stay” featuring Kelly Clarkson, which took home the “Vocal Event of the Year” and “Single Record of the Year” at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. Currently, Aldean is on a fall tour throughout the U.S.
