Jason Aldean is RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time, among many other great accomplishments, and giving back in the form of finding new ways to raise awareness for breast cancer research has remained essential for him. This year, he is partnering with the Grand Ole Opry for the first time to incorporate his 11th annual “Concert for the Cure” as a part of the Opry’s eighth annual “Opry Goes Pink.” He will be this years honored guest who gets to “flip the switch”, turning the Opry pink for two shows on Tuesday, October 25th. Jason will perform along with other of our favorite country artists to raise awareness and funds for Women Rock for the Cure, a Nashville-based non-profit committed to connecting and supporting young women facing breast cancer, and Susan G. Komen®’s Nashville Chapter. It doesn’t get better than a talented man with a big heart.
“Finding a cure for breast cancer is something I’ll continue to fight for the rest of my life,” said Aldean. “Bringing the show back to Nashville this year as part of a special Opry performance where I will have so many friends and family in the crowd will be a good reminder of why we need to continue to fight this terrible disease.”
In 2004, Jason tragically lost a close friend to breast cancer at just 29 years old, and he has continued to donate a portion of each ticket sale to Susan G. Komen®, along with honoring a survivor and guest to each of his 2016 Six String Circus tour stops. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this guy is truly the man on and off the stage.
Chris Young, Montgomery Gentry, Hillary Scott & The Scott Family will be joining the multi-platinum entertainer this year along with more artists yet to be announced. Previous artists who have received the honor of flipping the switch include Kacey Musgraves, Kellie Pickler, Carrie Underwood, and Rascal Flatts, among others.
What better way to celebrate breast cancer awareness month than by seeing an awesome show while doing good? When you order your ticket, $5 will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure. Hell yeah.
