such an unbelievable thing to even have your name uttered in the same
breath as a guy like that,” said Aldean. “Strait is probably the best

than King George!”
news comes on the eighth anniversary of Aldean’s debut album release.
The self-titled disc featured smash singles “Hicktown,” “Amarillo Sky”
and his first-ever No. one song “Why.” Since 2005, Aldean has gone on
to sell more than eight million copies of his five studio albums, rack
up 11 No. one singles and sell out stadium shows.
Aldean, a long-time supporter of the fight against breast cancer, partnered with GE, Susan G. Komen and the Wyoming Women First organization at
Frontier Days to help encourage women to sign up for more information

parked on site, which is a mobile screening facility especially vital in
states like Wyoming where the average distance a woman has to travel
for a mammogram is 70 miles. Each October, breast cancer awareness
month, Aldean dubs one of his tour dates the “Concert for the Cure” and
donates all profits to Susan G. Komen, raising in excess of $1 million
