Country on the River to Benefit Operation Toop Aid

OperationTroopAid_logo_lrg

Country On The River, a multi-day music festival taking place in Iowa on June 20 – 21 and Wisconsin on August 7 – 9, has named Operation Troop Aid as the official charity.

The Iowa festival will feature performances by Gary Allan, Bret Michaels, Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Thompson Square, Tracy Lawrence, Lonestar and Joe Diffie. The Wisconsin festival will feature performances by Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Tracy Lawrence, Kix Brooks, Thompson Square, Sawyer Brown, Dustin Lynch, Parmalee and Trick Pony.

“We are very honored to have Operation Troop Aid with us at Country On The River. The support they bring to our troops is invaluable. Country On The River is committed to the Troop Aid cause and we fully support their efforts. We look forward to having Operation Troop Aid in both Iowa and Wisconsin,” says festival organizer Scott Sheckler.

Since its inception, Operation Troop Aid has garnered the support of music celebrities across multiple genres, from KISS to Toby Keith and Cheap Trick to Charlie Daniels. Operation Troop Aid’s mission is to make a positive difference and inspire deployed U.S. service members by letting them know America stands with them. Operation Troop Aid provides care packages and bill assistance with revenue generated through professional concert promotions, entertainment initiatives and public financial generosity.

In addition, Operation Teddy Bear, which started in 2012 as an initiative of Harris Jewelry, continues in support of our military, both at home and abroad through the sale of uniformed teddy bears. Teddy Bears representing all branches of the military can be purchased for $15.00 at www.operationtroopaid.org or www.mybuddybears.com. To date, Operation Teddy Bear has raised over $100,000 to help Operation Troop Aid, a 501(c)3 organization, send care packages to deployed personnel and sponsor events for military families and communities.

This week, Jason Aldean and the writers of his latest no. 1 song, “When She Says Baby,” Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, gathered at Nashville’s Pour House to celebrate the song’s success.

“We sat down that day to write a Jason Aldean song,” Hayslip said, explaining the song’s origin to the crowd. “I wanted to get on Jason’s Night Train album [and] I wrote a whole catalog of songs to get on there.”

And get on there it did, giving Jason Aldean his 13th no. 1 song as an artist.

I felt pretty good when I got here,” Jason Aldean said, “until I found out that everyone had more No. 1′s than I did.”

Jason Aldean’s “Too Much to Drink” Mistake Sticking Around

jason aldean

Jason Aldean is making internet waves this week after photos have surfaced of Brittany Kerr at his tour stop last week at The Wharf. In case you live under a rock, Brittany is the girl Jason was caught playing tonsil hockey with in 2012. Since then, Jason and his long-time wife Jessica have filed for divorce.

At the time of the cheatin’ scandal, Jason was apologetic and blamed too much booze on his poor moral conduct.

The truth is that I screwed up,” Aldean wrote on his Facebook page after the incriminating photos of the smooch went online. “I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that’s the end of the story.”

However, since it appears the two are still cozy, it doesn’t look like it was the booze after all. Seems to me that Jason let his eyes and hands wander until they landed on something that wasn’t his wife and in the process found something he’d like to keep around for a while.

Yes, I’m sure Jason and Jessica were having their problems…I guess I just find it funny how LeAnn rimes was practically blacklisted from country music for her cheating scandal turned wedding bells, but Jason Aldean was just being a guy who made a mistake.  Now we know it wasn’t just a mistake, and although it doesn’t make him a better or worse singer…It does say something about his character.  Instead of just being honest and taking responsibility…he made excuses and blamed it on the booze.

Apparently, Brittany Kerr doesn’t mind being someone’s mistake as long as it gets her a VIP pass with a side-stage concert seat.  The least Jason could do was let the ink dry on his divorce settlement out of respect for the woman who gave him 12 years of her life and two daughters.

But, before all you ‘he-can-do-no-wrong’ Jason Aldean fans jump down my throat…allow me.  It’s none of my business (but he’s famous and got caught in scandalous photos…so it kinda is),  he’s human…he makes mistakes (take responsibility for them), and who cares… (his wife and kids).  But yes, I’m done now.
