Jason Aldean achieves his 22nd career Number One single with “Girl Like You.” The single takes the top spot on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart while it spends its second week atop Billboard’s Country Airplay this week. This is the third consecutive multi-week chart topper from his record-breaking eighth studio album, REARVIEW TOWN.
“This album is such a big part of the last year for me,” said Aldean. “It also reminds me how badass the band, people behind the scenes and supporters like Country Radio are who continue to help me do this every day. And the fans, can’t thank you enough for taking this ride with us.”Read more →

Producer Michael Knox will debut a new radio show, KNOX Country 360, on Friday, June 29.
Based in Nashville, the new show is managed by Michael Knox along with Donny Walker (former executive at Westwood One, Cumulus Media, BDS, Billboard Magazine), and Shalacy Griffin, currently the Senior Vice President of Operations for Music Knox, LLC.
KNOX Country 360 will offer 10-12 songs per hour, mixing current hits with re-currents and trending music, as well as personal stories from Knox and artist interviews and performances. The show will also include a podcast component.
“Radio is where country music fans connect with the music and artists they love, throughout their day,” observed Knox. “I’ve worked in production, management, and publishing, with record labels, and now radio. I’m excited about being on the air where I can bring country’s biggest stars directly to fans. Focus 360 has the relationships with radio stations and advertisers that make them the perfect partner to help us succeed.”
“Few people in Music Row history have turned creativity into chart success as well as Michael,” stated Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Focus 360. “He is one of Nashville’s most original-thinking business minds and one of its most successful groomers of talent and song placement. We are delighted to partner with him and bring his star-studded, music-filled show to radio.”
In addition to production work that has helped sell more than 18 million albums and 40 million singles (including 21 No. 1 career singles) Knox’s multi-faceted career has included time as an executive at music publisher Warner/Chappell Music. He currently serves as vice president for peermusic in Nashville, and also formed the production management company Music Knox with client Michael Tyler (Reviver Records).
