1405997596000-missing-man

A fan attending Jason Aldean‘s Cleveland ‘Burn It Down’ tour stop who went missing has been found dead. 22 year old Cory Barron was last seen quite intoxicated around 9pm at Progressive Field Friday night. He was reported missing on Saturday by family.

Corey’s body was discovered Republic Services landfill in a load that had been removed from the concert. Authorities believe he may have fallen down a garbage chute at the stadium into a dumpster. The body had no signs of obvious injury but if this is the case, Corey would’ve falled about 5 stories.

Tuesday night, Aldean tweeted “My sincere condolences go out to Cory Barron’s family and friends. My heart is heavy for you all and you are in my thoughts and prayers.”

Jason Aldean Releases “Burnin’ It Down” As Lead Single!

Following two stadium sellouts this weekend, two-time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” Jason Aldean has released “Burnin’ It Down” as the lead single from his upcoming sixth studio album for Broken Bow Records. Again produced by Michael Knox and recorded with members of Aldean’s long time touring band, the smoking new single is available now at Country Radio and for purchase at all digital retailers.

“Sonically, this track definitely feels like something different for me and what I have typically put out as the lead single off my previous albums,” said Aldean. “I’ve pretty much always gone with a really guitar-driven song that’s pretty in your face, and this is more of a laid back thing with a really cool groove. We played it live for the first time this weekend in Cleveland and Cincy at the stadium gigs, and I’m excited to see how it takes off from here. There are some different things on this new album, and I hope this sets a good tone for what’s to come.”

Aldean is currently in the midst of a monumental stadium run which will take him through five stadiums as part of his headlining BURN IT DOWN 2014 TOUR. This past weekend Aldean played back to back sold out shows at Progressive Field and Great American Ball Park. Over the next two weekends Aldean will play Nationals Park (Washington, DC on 7/25); PNC Park (Pittsburgh, PA on 7/26) and Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia, PA on 8/1).

Two time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” Jason Aldean is gearing up for his first set of stadium dates this weekend with back to back sold out shows at Progressive Field (Cleveland, OH on 7/18) and Great American Ball Park (Cincinnati, OH on 7/19). These are the first of five MLB stadiums for Aldean that will also see him play Nationals Park (Washington, DC on 7/25); PNC Park (Pittsburgh, PA on 7/26) and Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia, PA on 8/1) over the next two weeks.

“This stadium run is something I’ve been looking forward to all year,” said Aldean. “I dreamed of playing MLB stadiums since I was six in Little League and watch games at these stadiums every season.  It’s wild to stand on the mound during load in and watch an empty park totally come alive with our production and crazy, loud fans.  These next two weeks will definitely be something I look back on with unbelievable pride and gratitude.”

The monumental shows are part of Aldean’s headlining 2014 BURN IT DOWN TOUR and will continue through the fall hitting the country’s biggest amphitheaters and arenas, with additional upcoming dates including two sold out nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Special guest Miranda Lambert will join Aldean and his 2014 BURN IT DOWN tourmates Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr for stadium shows in Cleveland, OH; Cincinnati, OH and Pittsburgh, PA.  For a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit www.jasonaldean.com.
