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.
