Jason Aldean celebrated quite the huge milestone playing a sold out show at Madison Square Garden. He jokes he has a long way to go to catch up to Elton John who holds the record of most sold-out shows there with 62: “61 more to go before I get a banner apparently. It was a good feeling that you could go to a place like New York that you could bring country music to that city and people accept it like that and come out the show. It was pretty amazing.”
Jason admits the history there leaves you awestruck: “There’s so much history there and anybody who is anybody has ever played there. Elvis, whoever. So it was really cool for me to play there and just walk around to see some of the history of the building.”
Jason heads to the Houston Rodeo next. He just celebrated his two #1`s “Take A Little Ride” and “The Only Way I Know” with back-to-back parties in Nashville.
