JASON ALDEAN SETS 4th ANNUAL “CONCERT FOR THE CURE” FOR FRIDAY, JUNE 12
NASHVILLE, TN – Apr 29.2009 – Country music fan favorite Jason Aldean will once again host his annual Jason Aldean: Concert For The Cure during CMA Music Festival at the Wildhorse Saloon to benefit Susan G. Komen For The Cure. Following his stadium performance, Aldean will invite a few special guests to join him for a late night concert that will also feature a silent auction with items from some of country music’s biggest stars. Fellow Georgia-native Luke Bryan is the first guest performer to be added to the lineup.
Breast cancer touched Aldean personally when a close family friend passed away from the disease at only 26 years old. Since that tragic loss, Aldean has been committed to lending his celebrity in the search for a cure.
“I know a lot of fans heard my friend Melissa’s story in the album special that GAC did,” says Aldean. “That two minute clip barely touch on how passionate I feel about this. I promise to make it the most rocking late night gig in downtown Nashville that night, and I hope people will come out to support this cause and help me remember Melissa.”
Tickets range from $25 to $100 and are available to fan club members this week and to the public beginning May 2 through www.jasonaldean.com and ticketmaster. A limited number of VIP Packages including tickets in the exclusive VIP lounge and meet & greet passes will also be available.
