Jason Aldean Marks 21st No. 1 Single With ‘Drowns the Whiskey’
It's hard to imagine that Jason Aldean has too many sorrows he needs to drown at this point in his highly successful career, and his latest single "Drowns the Whiskey," is good proof of this.
The heartbreak-soaked song, a duet with Miranda Lambert, is holding tight at the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for a second week, and also claims this week's top position on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles chart, marking his 21st career No. 1 single.
The song has even longer legs, mile-wise, as it is the second consecutive multi-week No. 1 hit from his eighth album, Rearview Town, following on the heels of the successful "You Make it Easy."
Brandon Kinney, Jeff Middleton and Josh Thompson teamed up to write "Drowns the Whiskey," an old-school-flavored, melancholy country composition that Aldean knew his friend Lambert would be a perfect addition to.
"I’ve always been a fan of her voice, and I’ve always said if I was a female singer that’s the kind of stuff I would do," he tells Taste of Country. "She’s a rocker, but can also be like really country. Really well-rounded.
"When I sent her [the song] she kind of flipped out," he notes."She was on board then. And then she came in to sing it and nailed it."
