Country music's top digital sales leader Jason Aldean pulled his latest album off Spotify on Monday (Nov. 10), although his previous albums are still available through the digital music streaming service.

Aldean's sixth album, Old Boots, New Dirt, had been available to subscribers of the service when it was initially released Oct. 7, but a Spotify spokesman confirmed the album was removed. A representative for Aldean's label, Broken Bow Records, said the label had no comment on the decision.

Taylor Swift Catalog Removed From Spotify

The album has sold more than 467,000 copies since its release and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Old Boots, New Dirt had the biggest first week for a country album on Spotify with more than 3 million streams, and Aldean also recorded a track-by-track commentary for Spotify listeners.

Taylor Swift made headlines last week when she pulled her entire catalog off Spotify, and her latest release, 1989, was never offered on the streaming service.
