Jason Aldean released his first studio album in 2005 and has maintained a steady recording and touring pace ever since.
The Georgia native released his 9th LP in 2019 and it quickly became his sixth consecutive #1 debut. Aldean says 9 is probably the best record he’s ever done, with songs like “Keeping it Small Town” reminding him of where he came from.
“I’ll always have that connection to that small town… that’s where I was raised,” he said. “Even now, I don’t live in Nashville. I live outside of Nashville in the country a little bit because that’s what I want. I’m not a city guy.”
What he is a hit-maker. Aldean has placed 53 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart during his career, with 31 tracks cracking the top 10 and 9 going to #1. Here’s a look back at those 9 chart-toppers, counting down by the number of total weeks spent on the chart.
