Jason Aldean Can't Explain His Music's Appeal


(Nashville, TN) -- Jason Aldean can't explain the popularity of his brand of country music. The singer says he didn't set out to create a new country-rock hybrid.


Aldean admits his music isn't "traditional," but says it's just his "version" of what he thinks "country music sounds like." And it's got pretty big appeal. Jason has been named the "Number One Male Country Digital Artist" by the Recording Industry Association of America, with total song downloads and on-demand streams of more than 21-point-five-million. Luke Bryan ranks second among the country men, with 16-point-five-million. Carrie Underwood leads the way among all country stars, with 22-point-five-million. No other country artist has reached the 15-million mark.
