The Year in Review 2012: Jason Aldean Is Country's Hottest Ticket in 2012

Green Room PRJason Aldean became country's hot new ticket seller in 2012 with his My Kinda Party tour playing to a total 1.9 million fans. His My Kinda Party album scored double platinum status in 2012, while the new set, Night Train, went platinum just four weeks after it was released late in the year. The number-one hits kept coming with "Fly Over States" and "Take a Little Ride" hitting the top spot.

Jason opened the CMA Awards in November with buddies Eric Church and Luke Bryan singing their new single, "The Only Way I Know." Jason also took part in the platinum-selling Lionel Richie duets album Tuskegee and appeared on the ACM special celebrating that project on CBS.

TMZ caught Jason appearing to get intimate in photos with a former American Idol contestant at a Los Angeles club, but Jason promptly apologized and the incident seems to have had little effect on his career. Look for Jason to play more stadium shows on the Night Train tour in 2013.
