As a recording artist, he has sold more than 15 million albums domestically, including blockbuster singles such as "Stand Up," "Get Back," "Southern Hospitality," "Number One Spot," "Money Maker" and "My Chick Bad." With an unrivaled match of lyrical acumen, wit and imagery, Bridges has solidified himself as one of music's premier entertainers.

Multi-Platinum entertainer Jason Aldean has learned a thing or two about the music he has made over the past 16 years. Aldean has bolstered 27 No. One hits, 15 billion streams and has sold more than 20 million albums.
