Jason Aldean

Get ready to “take those old records off the shelf” – American music icon Bob Seger will collaborate with country superstar Jason Aldean later this month for an all-new installment of CMT CROSSROADS. The network’s flagship music series pairs Seger, described by New York Daily News music critic Jim Farber as the “lion of literate American rock,” with Aldean, country music’s most downloaded male artist in history, for an evening of never-before-heard duets on one another’s hit songs. CMT CROSSROADS: BOB SEGER AND JASON ALDEAN will premiere Black Friday, November 28 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.

Two-time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” Aldean recently released his sixth studio album, Old Boots, New Dirt. The new album’s smoking lead single, “Burnin’ It Down” earned platinum certification in only nine weeks, making it the fastest selling single of 2014. To date, Aldean has sold more than 9 million albums and has taken 13 trips to No. 1 on the country radio charts. Each of Aldean’s albums has been certified platinum with his last album, Night Train, earning certification only four weeks after its release. Aldean was recently recognized by the RIAA as the top male digital country artist in history with sales totaling more than 21 million downloads. He is currently headlining his monumental 2014 Burn It Down Tour, which saw him play five stadium dates in addition to sold out shows in the country’s biggest amphitheaters and arenas.
