Jason Aldean Celebrates Success of ‘Fly Over States’ With Nashville Party

On Tuesday afternoon (July 17), Jason Aldean celebrated yet another hit single with a party in Nashville, this time for his recent chart-topper, ‘Fly Over States.’ But it never gets old.

Aldean and the song’s two writers — Neil Thrasher and Michael Dulaney — were all honored during the invite-only celebration for the song that topped the charts back in May. The song was Aldean’s fifth and final single from his career record, ‘My Kinda Party,’ and also marked his fifth-consecutive No. 1 song.

“You never know [when you'll have a No. 1 song],” Aldean told Taste of Country and other reporters prior to the start of the party on Tuesday. “And you never know which song will be your last one. ‘Why’ was our first No. 1, and then it seemed like it was about three years before we had another one. I learned early not to take them for granted and to just enjoy them. I think this is our ninth one, and it definitely never gets old. It’s always a good thing to show up and celebrate one of these with the writers, producers, publishers, and everybody that’s involved with it.”

‘Fly Over States’ was also the second No. 1 in a row for writers Thrasher and Dulaney, who also co-wrote Aldean’s previous chart-topper, ‘Tattoos on This Town,’ with Wendell Mobley.

Before taking the platform, Aldean mingled with the attendance, who enjoyed a catered spread of slider sandwiches, chips and dip, fruits, vegetables, cheese and assorted desserts. Among those who came to celebrate with the singer and songwriters were Aldean’s wife, Jessica, his band, his record label staff, his booking agent and many others from the music industry.

The country king is not showing any signs of slowing down his No. 1 streak after the release of his latest single, ‘Take a Little Ride.’ The tune impacted country radio this week and is already sitting at No. 1 on the iTunes all-genre chart. The song is the debut single from Aldean’s next studio album, which is slated for release later this year.
