Aldean plans special Atlanta gig

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 – Jason Aldean returned to his home state of Georgia today to reveal the one-night-only lineup from SunTrust Park for his High Noon Neon Tour stop at the new Atlanta Braves stadium on July 21.

Aldean will play along with Lauren Alaina and Luke Combs plus a Hootie & the Blowfish reunion for the night.

During the exclusive press conference, Aldean was joined by President of Live Nation Country Touring Brian O'Connell, former Braves superstar Chipper Jones, Alaina and Combs via video.

Fans can purchase tickets beginning next Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. eastern at JasonAldean.com and LiveNation.com.

"Out of all the shows we've played, I know this show is going to be a career defining moment," said Aldean at today's press conference. "We haven't had a chance to play Atlanta in a couple years in anticipation of this show and I know this night is going to mean a lot to my family and me. I've followed the Braves my whole life....was even at the '95 game when they clinched the World Series...so this is a huge full circle moment for me."

"Last spring, we were brainstorming what could happen this year to spice up Jason's touring routine, and the top thing on his mind was to play the home of the Atlanta Braves," said O'Connell. "It's important to understand Jason's history with Georgia not only as an entertainer but as a person who wants to honor his roots. He is the only Country music artist to play UGA's Sanford Stadium and now SunTrust Park and I know it's going to be the show of the summer in Atlanta."

The tour starts May 10, almost a month after Aldean releases his new disc, "Rearview Town," on April 13.

Hollywood may be pushing a broadminded agenda where there are more genders than one can even count, but in Jason Aldean's world, there are only two: tough guys, and the women that love them. There's no confusion it's a guy in the "Camouflage Hat," for example. Also, nothing is said or done without also washing it down with alcohol. The opener,"Tattoos and Tequila," breaks it down into tattoos to remember, and tequila to forget. Within its booze for every »»»
Rearview Town CD review - Rearview Town
If you liked Jason Aldean's three previous number one albums, you'll like "Rearview Town." He sticks to the winning formula that has brought him past success. The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt CD review - Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little time »»»
