Jason Aldean Puts His Music Back On Spotify


Jason Aldean‘s music is again available on Spotify. Aldean joined Big Machine’s Taylor Swift in pulling his library from the streaming service almost a year ago exactly.

“Everyone in the music business is trying to figure out how to make streaming work financially so that the creative community gets paid fairly,” Aldean posted to Twitter. “I’m happy to have been part of that dialogue and will continue to be as it all unfolds. I’ve heard from you, the fans, all summer on the road and online that you really miss being able to stream my music. I definitely want you to be able to find it easily, so we’ve decided to make it available again.”
