After wrapping his 2018 HIGH NOON NEON TOUR this past weekend, current three-time CMA nominee Jason Aldean celebrated his annual “Concert For The Cure” at Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in Nashville consummating more than $4.1 million for Susan G. Komen chapters across the country. Last night, the avid supporter towards the fight against breast cancer put the spotlight on Susan G. Komen Central Tennessee by presenting $459,509, which was raised by a portion of ticket sales from his 2018 tour. Survivors and fans alike were treated to an intimate performance by Aldean with personal stories about his history and commitment to helping beat the disease.
“All year long on the road, we hear stories from fans about how they’ve been affected by breast cancer,” said Aldean. “It’s crazy how just about everyone is close to someone who is or has fought this horrible disease. Thank you to the fans, Omaze and the TC Restaurant Group for their support last night and we’re going to keep doing our part in hopes that we never have to lose someone to breast cancer again.”
Closing out this year’s headlining run, the three-time and reigning ACM “Entertainer of the Year” made sure he “brought a party with him” (Des Moines Register) to each tour stop including the 20 sold-out shows such as Atlanta’s new SunTrust Park, New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Ushering in seas of fans with featured specials guests Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina, “Country’s biggest entertainer” (Rolling Stone) demonstrated why he is a “musically muscular, big-tent entertainer” (The Atlantic).
Aldean is only the second Country act in history to score four consecutive chart-toppers on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart with his current GOLD certified album REARVIEW TOWN, which follows six previous LPs that achieved PLATINUM certification or better. Following his 21st career No. One and multi-week chart topper “Drowns the Whiskey” featuring Miranda Lambert, Aldean recently released his follow-up single to Country radio “Girl Like You,” serving as the third release from his record-breaking eighth studio album. He continues the momentum behind the multi-week chart topper and RIAA’s only PLATINUM Country song released in 2018, “You Make It Easy,” as he blends together sensual rhythms with powerful vocals. The path paved by his wide-open sure-footed approach has defined the genre’s 21st century including more than 17 million total album sales and countless recognition from the GRAMMYs, ACMs, CMAs, BBMAs, People’s Choice Awards and more.
