Country superstar Jason Aldean notches the 25th Number One single of his career this week, celebrating the radio success of “Blame It On You.”
The woozy breakup anthem is currently the top song on both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart and Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, and Aldean recognized its success on social media.
Also making an official statement, Aldean noted that he scored his first Number One 15 years ago with “Why,” putting his career in context by remembering what he was doing just before that breakthrough hit.
“[Twenty five] No. one songs is bigger than I could have dreamed while I was driving that delivery truck back in Macon, GA,” Aldean said. “This one is for the fans, Country Radio and my team for taking this crazy ride with us.”
The track was written by Aldean’s longtime band members Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy with Michael Tyler, Brian Gene White and John Edwards, and Aldean praised his old friends’ achievement on Instagram. It’s the first time one of the songs they wrote for Aldean hit Number One, he said.
Meanwhile, “Blame It On You” marks back-to-back chart toppers for Aldean, following “Got What I Got.” Both tracks come off his 2019 album, 9, which itself marked his sixth chart topping LP in a row. All told, the hit maker has placed 34 songs inside the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart — more than any other artist since making his 2005 chart debut.
Looking ahead, Jason Aldean has begun teasing a new duet on social media. He’ll release a secretive collaboration titled “If I Didn’t Love You” this Friday (July 23), but he has yet to reveal his duet partner.
