Bon Jovi Makes History

Bon Jovi have made history becoming the first rock band to ever have had a #1 song on the Country chart, Bon Jovi has returned home from the all time record-setting Japanese stadium leg of their “Have A Nice Day” World Tour to find their duet with Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” has hit # 1.

Bon Jovi’s phenomenal “Have A Nice Day” world tour, where the band will play for 2.3 million people, started in Des Moines in November ’05. The band has just announced the addition of nine new stadium shows in New York for July, including 2 sold-out performances on July 18 & 19 at Giants Stadium, and a just-announced third show on July 29.

“Who Says You Can’t Go Home” was written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, the hit-making songwriting team responsible for some of the most recognizable rock and pop hits of the past 20+ years. “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” is the second single from the band’s ninth studio album, “Have A Nice Day,” which was released in September ’05. The album debut reiterated the band’s global rock icon status when it earned a career-high sales week for the band in the US, as well as debuting at # 1 in Japan, Australia, Holland, Austria, Germany, and Canada. The album has currently sold over 3 million albums worldwide.

“Who Says You Can’t Go Home” was performed live when the Country Music Awards came to New York in November ’05. The song has not only topped the Country chart, it has become a favorite on CMT, GAC and VH1 where the video has been in top rotation for weeks.

The video was shot on-site at the band’s Habitat for Humanity build and has earned the band their first CMT Award for “Collaborative Video Of The Year.” The collaboration is also nominated for an Academy of Country Music Award (May). The Governor of New Jersey recently has selected “Who Says” selected to be featured in an ongoing campaign to encourage tourism in the band’s native state.
