JASON ALDEAN SETS PLANS TO RETURN TO HOMETOWN OF MACON, GA FOR AMPLIFIED “CONCERT FOR THE KIDS” ON AUGUST 11TH
The One-Night-Only Concert Event Moves to the Macon Coliseum To Once Again Benefit the Children’s Hospital
NASHVILLE, TN – June 19, 2017 – Today, two-time and reigning ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean announced he will return to his hometown of Macon, GA for a second Concert For The Kids on Friday, August 11th. After raising more than half a million dollars at last year’s intimate stripped-down performance, Aldean will expand to the Macon Coliseum this year. All proceeds will once again benefit the Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health, which serves as Bibb County’s only dedicated pediatric facility in central Georgia that enhances the lives of children through patient care, research and education. Tickets go on-sale to the public beginning this Friday (6/23) at 10:00A ET on JasonAldean.com, Ticketmaster.com and the venue box office during normal business hours.
“Supporting these kids in Macon and their families is something that I’m really proud to be a part of,” said Aldean. “We’re looking forward to getting back to town, kicking things up a couple notches and hopefully raise a huge amount of money for the hospital so that they can continue to grow and serve my hometown community.”
“We are thrilled and so very appreciative that Jason made the time to take a detour from his THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR to visit Macon for the benefit of our patients at Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health,” added Ellen Terrell, Chief Development Officer for Navicent Health Foundation. “Our young patients and their families are grateful for Jason’s continued commitment to their healing and care. Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health has always relied on philanthropic support, and we are grateful to each of our donors for their commitment to Georgia’s most fragile children.”
“Country music’s hard-rocking everyman” is “the mirror image of his fans” (Rolling Stone) as his most recent album THEY DON’T KNOW follows each album release earning PLATINUM certification or better, tallying more than 15 million total album sales and 19 No. One hits. The longevity of his career reached new heights as he debuted at the No. One position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart for the third consecutive time. In addition to the new tour, the “reigning Entertainer of the Year shows why he holds the title” (Newsday) as the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum showcases a special exhibit Jason Aldean: Asphalt Cowboy, commemorating his wide-open sound that has been one of the defining influences on today’s Country Music.
