COUNTRY MUSIC SUPERSTAR JASON ALDEAN THROWS NATIONWIDE PARTY WITH 2011 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR
Eric Church and the JaneDear Girls To Open 32 City Spring Run
NASHVILLE, TN – Nov 16, 2010 – With thousands of club, festival and arena stages under his boots since playing his first gig at 14 years old, country music superstar Jason Aldean announced today the 2011 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR kicking off Jan. 21 in Little Rock, AR. Additional dates for the dynamic 32 city tour through May with special guests Eric Church and the JaneDear girls will roll out over the coming weeks.
“This is the tour I’ve dreamed about putting together my whole life. My band has never been tighter, and I finally have enough material and the kinda production to really take the songs to that next level for the fans,” says Aldean. “This one is for my Mom, who used to drive me to clubs when I wasn’t even 16 yet, wait on me to play the same Alabama, John Anderson and George Strait covers every night, then drive me home and make me do my homework before bed. We’ve come a long way!”
Of his live show, The Calgary Sun said, “Aldean’s laid-back yet ready-to-party-at-any-moment vibe and his apparent fondness for beer meant he had the crowd of 10,000 wrapped around his finger.”
First announced MY KINDA PARTY TOUR dates:
Jan. 21 – Little Rock, AR
Jan. 22 – Fayetteville, AR
Jan. 28 – Columbia, MO
Jan. 29 – Tulsa, OK
Jan. 30 – Lubbock, TX
Aldean’s new album, MY KINDA PARTY was released Nov. 2 and moved an impressive 193,000 units its first week, earning the biggest first week debut by a male vocalist in over three years. After selling nearly 4 million copies of his first three albums, the 15 track disc builds on the sound that brought him to the party, while continuing to push the boundaries of country music with his own unique style. Aldean is currently nominated for two American Music Awards in the “Favorite Male Country Artist” and “Favorite Country Album” categories, as well as “Male Artist of the Year” at the American Country Awards. He will be honored as one of five CMT Artists of the Year with a television special on the network in December.
EMI Records Nashville’s Eric Church, has produced two consecutive Top 10s from his critically acclaimed sophomore album Carolina. Described by Rolling Stone as possessing “old-school songwriting craftsmanship,” Church wrote or co-wrote every song on Carolina. Known for his rowdy, energy-packed live shows, he has been on the road this past year on his own sold out headlining tour and opening for artists such as Miranda Lambert. His latest single “Smoke a Little Smoke” is currently a Top 25 single and climbing.
The JaneDear girls are made up of Utah native Susie Brown and Texas native Danelle Leverett. Their debut smash-hit single, “Wildflower,” is the perfect introduction to the duo’s high energy, soaring harmonies and world-class instrumental skills. Just weeks after debuting their video, “Wildflower,” fans voted it the No. 1 video on GAC’s “Top 20 Countdown.” the JaneDear girls are the highest charting debut artists of 2010.
