Big Numbers For Jason Aldean DVD Before Release


Jason Aldean’s new live DVD, Wide Open Live & More, doesn’t hit store shelves for another week, but it’s already putting up impressive numbers. The RIAA has certified the project gold for sales in excess of 50,000 copies. Obviously the feat is something that Jason and his team are extremely proud of. Jason says “I’ve never been prouder of anything…really ever. My live show is the basis for everything I do…it’s usually the first thing I think about when I’m trying to decide what songs we record and release. My band and crew work so hard to deliver a kick-ass show night after night…even on the hottest day in August…so this feels like the ultimate reward for all of us.”

Jason is also taking a little time to reflect on how much his live show has grown in recent months. “Back in the spring, it felt like we were doing ok, you know…like we were starting to get rolling after a few months off for the holidays,” explains Aldean. “And then about the time ‘She’s Country’ started really peaking, things just exploded. We’re just doing what we’ve always done…but now crowds are bigger and rowdier than they’ve ever been. I played every dirty little hole-in-the-wall bar across the Southeast for years working my way up to this, so there’s absolutely no better feeling than hitting the stage to that kind of crowd now.”

Wide Open Live & More will hit stores shelves one week from today, August 25. Stay tuned right here to CountryMusicIsLove for your chance to win a copy!
