Aldean sells out MSG
Friday, January 18, 2013
– Jason Aldean added Madison Square Garden to the list of iconic venues to sell out in less than 10 minutes on his 2013 Night Train Tour. Every ticket to his first-ever show at the New York City staple was picked up this morning for the March 2 stop, according to his publicist.
Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett will open the tour which also includes sold out shows at the University of Georgia's Sanford Stadium (April 13), a two-night stand at Boston's Fenway Park (July 12-13) and Chicago's Wrigley Field (July 20).
"I think people underestimate country music's popularity in New York City," said Aldean. "The Garden is one of those places every artist dreams of playing. I am blown away that my show sold out that quickly...it makes me even more excited to hit rehearsals this month and get the Night Train tour on the road. I can't wait to see you, New York."
Aldean has received Platinum certification for his recent three-week number one single Take A Little Ride, the first single from the new disc. Aldean's current single is The Only Way I Know featuring Luke Bryan and Eric Church.
The 2013 Night Train Tour kicks off Feb. 21 in Bossier City, La.

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
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 »»»
