Multi-Platinum BMG recording artist Jason Aldean's tenth studio album MACON, GEORGIA is now available in its entirety, with the official release of the second installment of the double album, GEORGIA, completing the two album set, released by Macon Music/Broken Bow Records/BMG. The 20 new songs and 10 previously unreleased live tracks showcase everything he does as one of the biggest entertainers today.
In November 2021, Aldean released the first half of the project, with part one, MACON, debuting at Number One Independent Albums, number three Top Country Albums, number five Top Current Album Sales, number six Top Album Sales, and number eight on the all-genre Billboard 200.
MACON, GEORGIA's full release follows the wild success of Aldean's powerful duet with Carrie Underwood, ‘If I Didn't Love You’, as his 26th career chart-topper and lead single, drawing accolades from a recent Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Country Song, to ACM, CMT and iHeart awards, alongside a Grammy nomination. His superstar status continues to transcend with critics and fans alike as the new music makes its own mark paying homage to his hometown.
In a recent interview with Music Row, Aldean said, “Macon has a rich music history with the Allman Brothers, Otis Redding, Little Richard, and more being from there. But for me, it’s my hometown. It’s where this whole ride started. It’s where I learned to be a musician and play on stage for the first time.
When I was coming up, there was a lot of people that were coming out of Georgia that almost made it seem like this wasn’t an unreachable goal. Trisha Yearwood, Travis Tritt, and Alan Jackson were coming out of Georgia. I came up playing some of the same bars and towns, and doing some of the same stuff.”
The three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year has bolstered 26 Number One hits, 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold, vaulting him to the pinnacle of Country music success. Notably, seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified Platinum or more, alongside holding the record for the most Top 10 songs on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, since making his chart debut in 2005. Aldean will gear up his ROCK N’ ROLL COWBOY TOUR this summer as the 34-city trek kicks off in July, following the launch of his Wolf Moon Bourbon brand, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years offering a finish of caramel, oak and spice.
