Jason Aldean Defends His Not-So-Private Life on Instagram

Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean is getting defensive about his relationship with Brittany Kerr on social media. Jason posted the above photo on his Instagram, obviously assuming the turmoil over his private life and mis-steps had blown over…

A little surprise for my girl @brittanylkerr tonight. Her favorite pooch @manny_the_frenchie came to my show in Chi-Town tonite. #loveubaby #surprise

He was wrong. Fans and followers took to the comments section, letting him know they thought his choices were in poor taste… to put it mildly.

Very uncharacteristically, Jason fought back with the above image.

So sick of people judging me and @brittanylkerr over things they know nothing about. I have made mistakes but i am a better person because of it, and wouldnt change a thing. Im happier than i have ever been, so thank u to all the people who support us. We are happy and life goes on. Its time to move on people. #aldeanarmy #oldnews #timetomoveon

The thing that Jason is failing to realize is that as much as it sucks, he’s famous and that means things he does in public (get caught cheating on his wife then saying he was drunk and it didn’t mean anything) tend to follow a public figure for a long long time. Especially when the drunken mistake turns out to be so much more. For crying out loud, Leann Rimes didn’t have kids and didn’t lie about her infidelity and she’s still taking a wrap for it from the public.

Jason Aldean Most Downloaded Male Country Artist EVER!

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has recognized Jason Aldean as the Top Male Country Artist in the history of RIAA’s Digital Gold & Platinum Awards, the music industry’s premier program for celebrating artistic achievement in the marketplace. To date, Aldean has tallied over 21.5 million cumulative RIAA Digital Single Certifications counting song downloads and on-demand streams.

“On behalf of myself and my RIAA colleagues, we are delighted to recognize Jason Aldean for this prestigious honor,” said RIAA Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman. “We congratulate Broken Bow Records and Jason on this singular achievement and look forward to many more years of great country music to come.”

“This is such a huge honor, and one that everyone on my team earned together,” said Aldean. “I love country music, and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else…there was never a Plan B for me. I can’t thank the RIAA or country music fans enough for helping us get to this level…it’s unbelievable!”

Last week, Aldean’s smoking new single “Burnin’ It Down” ranked as the top selling single in the country in all genres and marked his biggest career debut ever at country radio. Aldean just rounded out a string of five massively successful BURN IT DOWN 2014 TOUR stadium dates, and the tour will continue on with notable upcoming stops including two sold out nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Jason Aldean is a Raging Idiot…But For a Good Cause

With just one day left of their #50kWithJasonA challenge, The Bobby Bones Show surpassed their goal by raising more than $60,000 for Susan G. Komen. The fundraiser came about during an appearance last week by two-time Academy of Country Music “Top Male Vocalist” Jason Aldean, who agreed to play a show with Bones’ band The Raging Idiots to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital if the show could raise $50,000 for Susan G. Komen.

As of this morning, The Bobby Bones Show needed to raise $15,000 to reach their goal, so Bones announced on-air that he would match any donations within the next 15 minutes. The audience came through and donated $10,000, prompting Bones to match it with a check for $10,000.

“Aldean and the Idiots has quite a ring to it,” laughed Aldean. “Seriously, I think it’s great that they were able to raise so much money for Susan G. Komen and so quickly…Country fans are the best! It’s been a long time since I’ve sat in at a club show like this…I better start thinking about what songs I can do with them.”

“Our listeners never disappoint me, and they often still surprise me with their generosity,” stated Bones. “To team up with one of Country music’s biggest stars and help two charities at the same time is awesome. We’re happy to be supporting St. Jude and Susan G. Komen. Now onto the show that Jason promised us – Jason Aldean and my band The Raging Idiots.”

Details regarding The Raging Idiots concert featuring Jason Aldean will be announced in the near future. For more information, please visit www.BobbyBones.com.

Pittsburgh Pleased with Country Music Goers at Jason Aldean Concert

Concerts in Pittsburgh appear to be less of a mess now that a few restrictions have been put in place.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto says Jason Aldean’s concert at PNC Park was a “cleaner and safer atmosphere” than other recent shows. The city’s efforts included limiting tailgating to five hours before the show and passing out recycling bags.

Luke Bryan’s June show at Heinz Field and Kenny Chesney’s concert at Heinz Field last year resulted in heaps of trash and dozens of emergency calls. City officials say ambulances took 32 people to area hospitals for the Aldean concert, mostly for intoxication. That’s a slight drop from the number transported after the Bryan concert.

Jason Aldean Agrees to be a Raging Idiot

The Bobby Bones Show welcomed two-time Academy of Country Music “Top Male Vocalist” Jason Aldean in studio earlier this week to debut his new song “Burnin’ It Down,” the first single from his new album due out later this year.  During the interview, Aldean agreed to play a show with Bones’ band The Raging Idiots to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, if the show could raise $50,000 for Susan G. Komen.

 

Aldean also talked about the progression of Country music; his top songs to perform; performing Lionel Richie’s “Stuck On You” while on vacation in Key West; how he doesn’t want to know the cost of one of his shows; his friendship with Tyler Farr, the comic relief of the tour; and possible plans for an overseas tour.
