JASON ALDEAN AND OVER 60,000 FANS SET TO
MAKE HISTORY TOMORROW AT FIRST-EVER
UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA STADIUM SHOW

Aldean Named ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Earlier This Week
 
 
Nashville,
TN – April 12, 2013 – ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Jason Aldean is
approaching one of the biggest moments in his career tomorrow as he is
set to play for more than 60,000 fans at the University of Georgia’s
Sanford Stadium.  Aldean is already in Athens preparing for the first
show to ever be held there.  Tickets for this 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR stop
sold out in less than an hour last October.
 
49
trucks and 27 buses have taken over Sanford Stadium in preparation for
the historic event “between the hedges.”  Aldean’s crew has been in
Athens for four days building one of the biggest outdoor stages in the nation and
hanging hundreds of lights, speakers, cameras and high resolution video
panels connected with over 3 miles of cable to bring one of the biggest
events in country music this year to life.  The show will include over
600 staff, pyrotechnics and a helicopter flyover.  Fellow Georgians Luke
Bryan and Thomas Rhett are also on the bill, along with current tour
mate and Florida native Jake Owen.
 
“It’s
been a long road from playing for 10 people just down the street in
Macon, GA where I grew up to headlining the stadium of my favorite
football team,” said Aldean.  “But I feel like that whole road was
leading me to this place, at this moment.  I was born a Bulldog fan, and
I have so many great memories at Sanford through the years.  I’ve been
working my whole career to get my live show to this level and I can’t
imagine a better place to kick off the stadium shows we’re doing this
summer.  We’re about to take tailgating to another level!”
 
Additionally, Aldean was named Male Vocalist of the Year at Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.  He also took home the trophy for Vocal Event of the Year for
his No. one song “The Only Way I Know” feat. Luke Bryan and Eric
Church, marking his second consecutive win in that category.  The third
single off his PLATINUM album NIGHT TRAIN, “1994,” is currently racing
up the Top 20.  “1994” comes on the heels  of seven consecutive No. one
singles and eleven career chart-toppers. 
 
The
2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR has sold out every show so far this year,
including Aldean’s Madison Square Garden debut in Feb. that sold out in
seven minutes. Other stadium stops include Boston’s Fenway Park (7/12
and 7/13) and Chicago’s Wrigley Field (7/20).
