Country star Jason Aldean pulled one of the year's hottest country albums -- his latest record, Old Boots, New Dirt -- off the music streaming service Spotify because he said he wants songwriters, publishers, producers and engineers to get fairly compensated.
Aldean joined Taylor Swift and other artists who have decided to remove their music from the service, which allows users to stream albums for free. The album has sold more than 467,000 copies since its release on Oct. 7 and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Old Boots, New Dirt also had the biggest first week for a country album on Spotify with more than 3 million streams.
