Friday, October 3, 2014
– Jason Aldean will kick off the release of his sixth studio album "Old Boots, New Dirt" with a multi-song performance on Today on Tuesday, release day for the CD, followed by a stop at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Aldean has announced that his ninth annual "Concert For The Cure" in Detroit on Oct. 11, where the headliner is slated for a two-night stand. Over the course of 2014's "Burn It Down" tour, Aldean has set aside a portion of each concert ticket to go towards a local Susan G. Komen affiliate. In years past, donations have been made across the country including Nashville, Roanoke, Dallas and New Orleans.
"We always try and have a lot of fun with our Komen show each year...it isn't just about raising money to help find a cure, it's also about celebrating everyone who is going through treatment now and those who've been able to beat the disease," Aldean said. "I think it is a great way to end release week in an area of the country that could use a little help. It should be a great week from start to finish.
The upcoming album's lead single, "Burnin' It Down," has held the number one position on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart since release, earning Platinum certification in nine weeks and making it the fastest selling country single of 2014.

Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless.

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 ...
