Jason Aldean Announces Free Concert in Nashville
Jason Aldean is partnering with Pandora to play a free concert in Nashville in November.
The "Girl Like You" singer is the most-played country artist across Pandora stations, and the online streaming giant is giving back to some of Aldean's biggest fans with a special event called Pandora Presents: Backroads With Jason Aldean, which is set to take place at Marathon Music Works in Nashville on Nov. 27.
“In the last year, Pandora has served up billions of listening hours for country music,” says Jeff Zuchowski, Vice President of Artist Marketing and Industry Relations at Pandora (quote via the Associated Press). “Jason Aldean fans have contributed to many of those hours and we’re thrilled to have him be part of Backroads along with Steven Lee Olsen, giving our loyal country fans an opportunity to experience them live.”
Olsen's new album, Timing Is Everything, is set for release on Nov. 9.
Aldean is excited about the show's special format, which allows fans to RSVP to receive free tickets via the event's website.
“It’s cool to get to play shows like this where you know the fans are all going to be some of the biggest out there," he states. “We’re looking forward to having a chance to thank them for all their support.”
Aldean released his most recent album, Rearview Town, in April. He's already scored two massive hits with "You Make It Easy" and "Drowns the Whiskey," a duet with Miranda Lambert. "Girl Like You" is the third single from the project.
Aldean is nominated for Entertainer of the Year in the 2018 CMA Awards, which will air live from Nashville on Nov. 14 on ABC. "Drowns the Whiskey" also scored nominations for Song, Single and Musical Event of the Year.
