It’s safe to say that Jason Aldean is a triple threat. With more than a dozen No. 1 hits, multiple albums and plenty of trophies to his name, it’s no wonder why he’s the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year.

And, it’s that title that has allowed the star to receive one of the most coveted awards in country music — the ACM Honors Triple Crown Award.

“To get that award you have to win three of the biggest ones that the ACM has,” said a thrilled Jason in an interview on the 10th annual ACM Honors red-carpet. “So, the fact that we are one of the few to be able to pull all three of them off puts me in a pretty cool club. I’m excited.”

What makes the Triple Crown Award even more prestigious is that it’s only been given out to six other people. Those artists include Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Mickey Gilley, Merle Haggard, Barbara Mandrell and Carrie Underwood. So, Jason proved to fans exactly why he deserved to be lucky No. 7 in the category of triple crown winners during the ACM special, which aired on Sept. 9, on CBS.

Jason’s mashup included, “Dirt Road Anthem,” “A Little Bit More Summertime” and “Tattoos on this Town”

The clip above shows Jason belting out the words to “Tattoos on This Town.” He wore a pair of jeans and a red shirt, while strumming along to his hits on his black guitar. And, boy oh boy was Jason’s beautiful bride smitten. Brittany Kerr beamed in awe over her hubby’s performance!

And, it’s clear that she’s so supportive of the country crooner while he’s got a busy month ahead. Jason just released his seventh studio album, titled “They Don’t Know,” on Sept. 9. In addition to that, he’s in the midst of playing shows for his Six String Circus Tour with openers Thomas Rhett and A Thousand Horses.
