Well here's a bit of completely surprising (just shocking I'm telling you) news – Jason Aldean has teamed up with the MLB for his 2014 Burn It Down Tour

Jason told "Good Morning America" this morning that he's planning about 50 tour stops and the tour will include Tyler Farr and Florida Georgia Line as openers. 

Yeah, kind of like the "inaccurate" info I had yesterday. 

You can watch Jason's announcement that he made on "Good Morning America" this morning here. In the meantime, check out Jason performing When She Says Baby below. 

I will update this post once all the info such as tour dates, etc. is announced. 

Update: Full press release after the jump…

Scotty McCreery Announces Sophomore Album Details

Just like the broken record of Florida Georgia Line that was, Luke
Bryan
’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ is becoming a mainstay of the country
charts. At #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs once more, it
moves up to #2 on Country Airplay this week, surely set to take the top spot
next week. In addition, his album ‘Crash My Party’ has fallen to #3. Meanwhile,
Thomas Rhett’s ‘It Goes Like This’
takes the radio #1, while it sits at #2 on Hot Country Songs and Country
Digital Songs, in advance of the release of his debut album next week. Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’
moves up to #3 on Hot Country Songs and #4 across Country Airplay and Country
Digital Songs, but ‘Based On A True Story…’ falls to #11 on Top Country Albums,
the first time it’s been out of the top 10 since its release in March.

Yet again, Luke Bryan’s
‘That’s My Kind of Night’ dominates both Hot Country Songs and Country Digital
Songs. It’s also moved up to #3 on Country Airplay, and I can imagine will top
that chart too next week. ‘Crash My Party’ has dropped to #2 on Top Country
Albums, knocked from #1 by Cassadee Pope’s
country debut ‘Frame By Frame’, which has pushed the lead single ‘Wasting All
These Tears’ to #10 on Hot Country Songs, #4 on Country Digital Songs and #24
on Country Airplay.

Thomas Rhett’s ‘It
Goes Like This’ has hit #1 on radio, holding onto #2 on Hot Country Songs and
#3 on Country Digital Songs, leading up to the release of his equally-titled
debut album on October 29. Jason Aldean’s
‘Night Train’ has moved back up to #3 on Hot Country Songs, although it drops
to #6 on Country Digital Songs and #4 on Country Airplay. His album has fallen
off the Top Country Albums top 10, down to #12. Meanwhile, Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ remains a steady contender, #5
on Country Digital Songs, #4 on Hot Country Songs (its current peak) and #6 on
Country Airplay, topped by Tim McGraw’s
‘Southern Girl’ at #5, #9 on Hot Country Songs and #18 on Country Digital
Songs. Blake’s ‘Based On A True Story…’ drops to #10 on Top Country Albums, and
will likely fall out of the top 10 next week, the first time since its release
last March.

Night-Train

Once again, Luke Bryan is at the top of 3 of our charts this
week. ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ remains at #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country
Digital Songs, while it moves up to #15 on Country Airplay. ‘Crash My Party’ is
at #1 on Top Country Albums again after selling 159,000 this week alone. The
single is also still doing well, though it dropped 6 places to #9 on Hot
Country Songs, but re-entered Country Digital Songs to place at #5. Other
tracks of Luke’s from the new record have dropped off the top end of Billboard’s
charts, but ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’, Luke’s last record from 2011, only
falls to #5 on Top Country Albums, while his EP from earlier this year falls 9
positions to #18.
