Jason Aldean flew up the iTunes all-genre Singles chart Tuesday morning, blowing past pop sensations Katy Perry and Flo Rida to claim the No. 1 spot with the just-released lead single “Take A Little Ride” off his upcoming fifth studio album, due out later this fall.
“We’ve never come out of the box and gone to No. 1 so quickly,” said Aldean. “I added the song into my set this weekend on the road for the first time, and everything is feeling really great out there. I couldn’t have asked for a better kick off for this new album…my fans are unbelievable.”

He has sold out every tour date so far this year, setting attendance records at most, which includes his first stadium sellout in Columbus, OH.
