Jason Aldean Tops The Billboard 200: This Week in Music

October 16th, 2014 12:33pm EDT
Jason Aldean
For country musician Jason Aldean, it is certainly a “beautiful day.” Why – well Aldean topped the Billboard 200 selling a robust 278,000 copies of his latest album, Old Boots, New Dirt. With so many new releases bowing yet so few managing to sell remarkably, Aldean can definitely consider himself one of the biggest successes of the year after week one. Aldean isn’t “Burning It Down,” he’s lighting it up…something like that!

But of course, there’s a down side to everything. After building up Aldean as Billboard Chart royalty, it must be noted that even his large sales are downscaled f...

Stevie Nicks. Singer. Artist. Legend. Creepiest ‘Idol’ mentor of all time. Stevie brought it all to the director’s chairs for her first stint in the ‘Idol’ mentor role. A lot of singing. Some crying. And an inate ability to make every contestants’ performance and song choice about herself. Exactly what you want from a narcissistic mentor.

But she brought an extra weird creep factor to the recording studio as well. She had the presence of a burnt-out college professor talking about how she was “there man” and the instability of that same professor’s mother.

After catching the eye of Christina Aguilera, Beverly let her self-confidence guide her throughout the competition. She was being herself, loud and proud and without fear.

Everyone wants to finish on a high note, and this show certainly did that, for the most part. The final performance show saw the four finalists duet with their coaches - a move which signified their having flourished over the course of the competition and become equals.
