NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 26, 2013 – CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean has teamed with media giants Facebook, Instagram, CMT and Palladia to bring fans exclusive content, a live chat and the network premiere of his live concert film, NIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA, which hits digital and physical shelves on Tues., Oct. 15.
Aldean has hooked up with Facebook and Instagram to become the first country artist to give fans many opportunities to participate in a live film premiere. On Facebook, Aldean will host a live chat alongside the stream of a special version of NIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA on his official Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/JasonAldean) on Mon., Oct 14 at 9pm ET, giving fans an extended first look at the film as well as the opportunity to engage with Aldean live while they watch. Leading up to the chat fans can head to Instagram for the chance to be a part of the music video for Aldean’s current No. one single “Night Train,” by posting videos of their own creative dance moves using #JasonAldeanDVD. The campaign is already running and showcases randomly selected video submissions on www.JasonAldean.com/DVD.
CMT will have the network premiere of the film with a 30 minute special feature on Sat., Oct. 19 at 2pm ET, immediately following their longstanding top rated program CMT Hot 20. Palladia will follow the next day, airing the feature on Sun., Oct. 20 at 9pm ET. To preview the special, CMT began airing an exclusive performance of Aldean’s current No. one single “Night Train” from the film in their music video playlist this week.
Filmed this past April at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium, NIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA captures Aldean and a sold out crowd of over 66,000 fans making history with the first concert ever held “between the hedges.” A TackleBox Films production, the piece was produced by Shaun Silva, Ivan Dudensky and Don Lepore.
Aldean has three nominations for the Nov. 6 CMA Awards, including his third consecutive Entertainer of the Year nod. He is also up for Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “The Only Way I Know” feat. Luke Bryan and Eric Church.
