NASHVILLE, TN – Jul. 20, 2018 – Before tomorrow’s HIGH NOON NEON TOUR stop at Atlanta Braves new SunTrust Park stadium, Georgia-native Jason Aldean has announced details behind his thirdConcert For The Kids charity event on Thursday, Sept. 6th in Macon, GA. The three-time and reigningACM “Entertainer of the Year” will return to the Macon Coliseum with direct support from Lauren Alaina. After raising more than $1.2 million from the past two events, proceeds will once again benefit Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health, which serves as the region’s only dedicated pediatric facility, serving central and south Georgia that enhances the lives of children through patient care, research and education. Tickets go on-sale to the public beginning next Friday (7/27) at 10:00A ET on JasonAldean.com, Ticketmaster.com and the venue box office during normal business hours.
“There are a lot of reasons I love doing what I do, but being able to give back to these kids and their families is definitely really important to me,” said Aldean. “We’ve been able to help support the build of an entirely new facility, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the community shows up for the hospital this year and what we can do to keep helping the people there.”
“We are so grateful to Jason and his entire team. This will be the third year he has done a concert benefiting the sick and injured kids cared for at the Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital. We just can’t thank him enough,” said Ellen Terrell, Chief Development Officer at Navicent Health.
“Aldean has opted to not back down and continue working in the well-worn groove” (UPROXX) that has helped define the genre’s 21st century with his sure-footedness, which plays into more than 15 million total album sales, dozens of sold-out stadium shows and countless recognition from the GRAMMYs, ACMs, CMAs, BBMAs, People’s Choice Awards and more. Continuing that momentum, Aldean is only the second Country act in history to score four consecutive chart-toppers on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart with REARVIEW TOWN, with six of his previous LPs have achieved PLATINUM certification or better. Aldean’s wide-open approach has made him a perennial live-show favorite for the format as he has headlined the biggest stadiums in the United States. He continues to do so on his HIGH NOON NEON TOUR and “doesn’t waste any time ripping through 23 songs during his 95-minute set” (Des Moines Register).
