Aldean raises $575K for cancer fight
Monday, October 28, 2013
– Jason Aldean raised more than $575,000 at his eighth annual benefit "Concert for the Cure" show in New Orleans for the fight against breast cancer.
A sold-out crowd at the New Orleans Arena filled the room with pink in support of the cause, and Aldean presented a check to the local Susan G. Komen Affiliate. All funds will directly support Komen New Orleans grants for breast cancer screening, treatment and education programs.
"New Orleans needs this money as badly as anyone right now," said Aldean from the stage. "I can't tell you how happy I am to give them this check. Like pretty much everyone I know, I've lost someone I love to breast cancer, and I don't want anyone else to have to go through that. For all you ladies out there - we love the rack...save 'em, alright!"

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 ...
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 ...
