Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood Win Big at American Country Awards

In only his second year as a large venue headliner, Jason Aldean continues to blow up the box office on his 2012 My Kinda Party tour. Even with his 360-degree production that increases capacity, Aldean has been selling out arenas since the tour began, including a double sellout at Philips Arena in Atlanta in May.

Last night, Aldean broke the all-time paid attendance record at RodeoHouston, with 74,901 fans at Reliant Stadium. The previous record was set just four days earlier when 74,588 fans saw the March 11 Go Tejano Day performance featuring La Original Banda El Limon and Duelo.

Signed to Broken Bow records, Aldean is booked by Kevin Neal at Buddy Lee Attractions and managed by Spalding Entertainment. He picked up the Breakthrough award at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards last November.
