JASON ALDEAN’S “CONCERT FOR THE CURE” JOINS FORCES WITH THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR IN LOUISVILLE, OCT. 20
Celebratory Event To Honor Komen® Kentucky
NASHVILLE, TN – Sep. 20, 2017 – As an avid supporter towards the fight against breast cancer, two-time and reigning ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean will celebrate his annual “Concert For The Cure” during his upcoming THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR stop at Louisville, KY’s KFC YUM Center on Oct. 20th. Featuring special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver, the night continues Aldean’s longstanding partnership with Susan G. Komen® as he will donate a portion from all ticket sales garnered throughout the year to Komen® Kentucky.
“As long as I have the chance, I will do my part and raise awareness for this cause,” said Aldean. “My fans keep fighting the battle with this terrible disease along with us, and our dream is that nobody has to fight the disease anymore.”
In 2004, RIAA’s top digital Country Male Artist of all time launched his efforts to support breast cancer research, after losing a dear friend to the disease. Since his first “Concert for the Cure,” Aldean’s efforts have raised more than $3 million to benefit Susan G. Komen chapters across the country..
“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 his THEY DON”T KNOW 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.
