Aldean Holds Down Top Spot
Jason Aldean’s platinum certified “My Kinda Party” held on at No. 2 for 14 weeks behind Taylor Swift, but this week wrestled the top spot away from her to take the No. 1 position on the country chart and the No. 7 ranking on the all genre Top 200 chart. The disc hit big out of the gate, moving more units its first week than any other male country artist in over three years. Aldean’s powerful duet with Kelly Clarkson “Don’t You Wanna Stay” also takes the top spot on the Country Digital Singles and iTunes Country Songs charts this week, moving 57,000 downloads. The track continues to climb the radio charts toward No. 1.
