Performance DVD Available Exclusively At Wal-Mart Through The Holidays
NASHVILLE, TN – Dec 12, 2007 – It has been a long haul for PLATINUM selling country music star Jason Aldean, who has been rocking live audiences since age 14 in bars and clubs across the Southeast. Beginning in January 2008, Aldean will kick off his solo RELENTLESS TOUR in Columbia, MO and will travel to 20 cities in the U.S. and Canada through early March. Tickets are on sale now.”I have learned a lot from being on the road with Rascal Flatts this year about the kind of arena tour I want to have one day,” said Aldean. “But, the first step is to go back to some smaller venues and keep building our fanbase one show at a time. We won’t stop playing until everybody in the place is on their feet and having a good time.”
Aldean’s set – a hybrid of traditional country and the southern rock sounds of his Macon, GA, roots – is consistently well-received by music critics.
“Aldean sounded a whole lot like someone who can hang with Nashville’s big
boys and girls.”
–Richmond Times Dispatch
“He brought cheers almost as enthusiastic as those the headliners received. In fact, Aldean’s energy was hard to follow.”
– Star Pheonix
“Jason Aldean’s opening song – I Use What I Got — could not have been more appropriate. What he’s got is a small town (or should we say Hicktown) charm, a consistent voice; a love for ’80s rock, and, above all, a real connection with his fans.”
– Gannett News
2007 has been a good year for the Aldean whose sophomore album RELENTLESS propelled him to the front lines of country music in May with unprecedented first week sales. The two albums have produced four hit singles and four #1 videos to date, along with multiple industry award nominations including CMA’s prestigious “Horizon Award.” His current single “Laughed Until We Cried” is climbing the charts and is featured prominently on an exclusive performance DVD offered exclusively through Wal-Mart ‘s “Soundcheck” series through the holidays.
