JASON ALDEAN’S 8th “CONCERT FOR THE CURE” RAISES OVER $575,000
FOR SUSAN G. KOMEN FOR THE CURE TONIGHT  
Nashville, TN – Oct. 25, 2013 – CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee
Jason Aldean held his eighth annual benefit show, “Concert for the
Cure,” tonight, raising more than $575,000 for the fight against breast
cancer.  A sold out crowd at the New Orleans Arena filled the room with
pink in support of the cause and Aldean presented a check to the local
Susan G. Komen Affiliate.  All funds will directly support Komen New
Orleans grants for breast cancer screening, treatment and education
programs.  
“New
Orleans needs this money as badly as anyone right now,” said Aldean
from the stage. “I can’t tell you how happy I am to give them this
check!  Like pretty much everyone I know, I’ve lost someone I love to
breast cancer and I don’t want anyone else to have to go through that.  
For all you ladies out there – we love the rack… save ’em, alright!”
Aldean
is heading into the final stretch of what has been a career-defining
year, wrapping up his 2013 tour dates tomorrow in Dallas, recently
notching his 12th No. one single, “Night Train,” earning three CMA Award nominations including his third consecutive Entertainer of the Year nod and being selected as one of five CMT Artists of the Year honorees.
