NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Country music’s top digital male artist Jason Aldean has returned to Spotify a year after pulling out of the streaming service over concerns about fair compensation.

On Wednesday night, Aldean’s six albums were available for streaming, including his platinum-selling 2014 release, “Old Boots, New Dirt.”

Last November, Aldean removed his music from Spotify, saying he wanted everyone involved in making his music to be paid fairly. He has been named the top male country artist for digital single certifications, counting song downloads and on-demand streams.

Earlier this year, he joined artists such as Jay Z, Rihanna and Madonna to promote Tidal, an artist-owned music and video platform.

Representatives for Spotify and Aldean did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.
