Jason Aldean keeps breaking records. Over the weekend, he set attendance records at New York metro area’s IZOD Center and Charlottesville, Virginia’s John Paul Jones Area, marking his 13th venue attendance record set in 2012. His My Kinda Party Tour has sold out all 18 shows so far this year, including Rodeo Houston at Reliant Stadium, where he set the all-time record with 74,901 fans and the IZOD Center, where he set a new record for a country concert with more than 19,000 fans. This breaks Shania Twain’s previous record of 15,749 in 2003.
This year’s tour production was changed to a 360-degree configuration to give more fans the chance to attend. Fellow Georgia natives Luke Bryan and Lauren Alaina have been along as special guests on the tour, with DeeJay Silver keeping the crowd entertained between sets.
“These last few months on the road have been unbelievable, and the crowds this weekend were killer,” Jason said. “We are off to Vegas next for the ACMs and will hopefully have a little luck on and off the blackjack tables!”
Jason is nominated for six ACM Awards, including Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. He is also scheduled to perform on the show. The ACMs will air live on CBS on Sunday, April 1 at 8/7 CT. And don’t forget to tune in to GAC on Sunday, April 1 at 7/6c to see all your favorite stars on the red carpet!
While Jason is living his dream selling out venues and picking up awards and hit singles, he recently tried his hand at another dream job – professional baseball player. Jason spent time practicing with the Atlanta Braves during Spring Training for the second season of GAC’s hit show, Day Jobs.
