CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean kicks off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the announcement that his eighth annual “Concert for the Cure” will be held Fri., Oct. 25 in New Orleans, LA at his sold out 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR stop at the New Orleans Arena.
Throughout the year, Aldean sets aside 50 cents of each concert ticket sold, then selects one show market in October and donates all proceeds to their local Susan G. Komen Affiliate.
“Last year the Komen New Orleans team needed a little over $1 million to meet all their needs, but they were only able to fund about half of that,” said Aldean. “If we raise the half a million that we did last year in Dallas we’ll be able to help these women meet their goal and provide the services the town needs. I can’t wait to see an arena full of pink in support of such a great cause!”
Aldean is currently celebrating a second week atop the Billboard chart with his 12th No. one single, “Night Train.” Additionally, has three nominations for the Nov. 6 CMA Awards, including his third consecutive Entertainer of the Year nod. He is also up for Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “The Only Way I Know” feat. Luke Bryan and Eric Church.
