Jason Aldean’s Concert For The Cure Collides With Opry Goes Pink

Jason Aldean

Since beginning his career, RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time Jason Aldean has continued to find new ways to raise awareness for breast cancer research, and for the first time in his career he partners with the Grand Ole Opry and incorporates his 11th annual “Concert for the Cure” as part of the eighth annual “Opry Goes Pink,” the annual special performance staged to fight breast cancer. In addition to the multi-platinum superstar flipping the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the Grand Ole Opry’s two shows on Tuesday, October 25, Aldean will take the stage to perform along with other favorites and raise awareness and funds for Women Rock for the Cure™ and Susan G. Komen®’s Nashville Chapter. A host of artists joining Aldean for the Opry shows will be announced soon.

“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.”

This year’s ACM Entertainer of the Year has been an avid supporter towards the fight against breast cancer since 2004, after losing a dear friend to the disease. Aldean continues to donate a portion of each ticket sale towards his longstanding partner, Susan G. Komen, while also honoring one breast cancer survivor and guest during his 2016 SIX STRING CIRCUS, with a VIP backstage meet-and-greet experience.

“Both Jason Aldean and the Opry have been working for several years now to fight breast cancer,” said Pete Fisher, Opry vice president and general manager. “We’re excited that the ACM’s Entertainer of the Year and the Opry are joining forces this year to make what we know will be a bigger impact than ever.”

Aldean will take the stage that night to present a check to the Susan G. Komen Foundation from monies raised on his tour throughout the year. Additionally, beginning today, when fans order tickets to the night’s shows, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure™. Tickets are available at (615) 871-OPRY and opry.com.

The Grand Ole Opry® is presented by Humana®. Opry performances are held every weekend of the year, and the Tuesday Night Opry continues through Dec. 13.

Chase Rice to Perform New Single, “Everybody We Know Does” on ‘Today’- DVR Alert

chase rice

Having logged thousands of miles on the fair and festival circuit this summer and countless hours in the studio fine-tuning new music for his much-anticipated forthcoming studio album, Chase Rice is set to perform his new single, “Everybody We Know Does,” for the first time on national television during his Today debut next Tuesday, Aug. 30th. The “massive sing-along,” which Taste of Country observes was “recorded with the fans in mind,” is also the inspiration and eponym for Rice’s fifth headlining tour, which officially kicks off in September. With a long history of supporting fellow singer/songwriters and building his live show around an eclectic blend of artists, Rice tapped country music newcomers Ryan Hurd and Lacy Cavalier to join him as support on the Everybody We Know Does Tour this fall.

“This tour is all about bringing people together and appreciating where we come from, whether it’s Seattle, Washington or Akron, Ohio or Buford, Georgia. Whether you’re from a big city or a small town; east coast, west coast or anywhere in between, we’re all part of this same great country and we all have a story about what makes us who we are,” said Rice. “Music is one of the best ways I know to share those stories and experiences, and I’m excited not only to play some of my new music live, but also to have two really creative artists in Ryan and Lacy with me on the road to add their own unique sounds and styles to the mix. We’re going to have a good time!”

Viewers can tune in to NBC’s Today on August 30th to catch Rice’s performance of “Everybody We Know Does.” Upcoming dates for the Everybody We Know Does Tour are as follows, with more to be announced:

Tegan Marie to Make Her National Morning TV debut on Good Morning America

Tegan Marie

With a larger-than-life voice, 12-year-old country music sensation Tegan Marie will make her national morning TV debut on Monday (8/29) with “Lucky Me” on ABC’s Good Morning America airing from 7-9 a.m. EDT/PDT. A native of Flint, MI, the burgeoning philanthropist continues to donate 100% of the proceeds from the song to the kids in her hometown directly affected by the water crisis. Prior to Tegan’s TV appearance, she can be seen on the Hess Stage, hosted by Radio Disney, at the renowned Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in Flushing Meadows, NY, on Saturday (8/27).

Tegan stunned listeners this summer when she released her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s #1 smash-hit, “H.O.L.Y.” Within three weeks it garnered over 15 million views on Facebook, made Florida Georgia Line “misty-eyed” and was featured in Us Weekly’s “Buzzzz-o-Meter” column. She has also been incredibly well-received by critics. Country Rebel noted, “At only 12-years-old, Tegan Marie is proving that she could not only be the next young star in country music, but the next big star period.” RARE Country added, “If you remember the shock we all felt when a 13-year-old LeAnn Rimes first hit the country scene with ‘Blue’ back in the mid-‘90s, then you’ll appreciate how rare a talent we’ve got in Tegan.”

Her exceptional talent also recently caught the attention of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team as they invited her to perform the national anthem at their last home game before the Olympics. Tegan rose to the occasion and didn’t let her home team down. RARE Country hailed, “The national anthem is considered by many singers to be one of the hardest songs to perform, but it was a piece of cake for Tegan.”
