Jason Aldean continues to donate a portion of each ticket sale throughout the year at his annual “Concert for the Cure” benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation, with this year’s contribution taking the grand total to over 3.3 million dollars for the fight against breast cancer. The recent “More Than Pink Hero” recipient celebrated the mile-marker in Nashville tonight (10/25) with partner The Grand Ole Opry in conjunction with their eighth annual “Opry Goes Pink.”

“It was a pretty full-circle moment for me to be able to bring this show back to Nashville where it got started as we go over the three million dollar mark,” said Aldean. “I could see a lot of family and friends out in the audience this year, which is a big reminder that we still have to keep fighting this disease.”

“Through the generosity of Jason Aldean and his devoted fans, we have the opportunity to increase our support for critical breast cancer research along with education, screening, and treatment programs for millions of women, men and families in Nashville and all over the world,” says Dr. Judy Salerno, President & CEO of Susan G. Komen. “His commitment to this cause has been unwavering and through his support, we’re one step closer to our vision of a world without breast cancer.”

In addition to performing, the multi-platinum superstar flipped the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the Grand Ole Opry’s two shows. 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. The Susan G. Komen Foundation recently named Aldean one of their “More Than Pink” Heroes for his impact in the fight against breast cancer.

It has been three long and amazing years since rising country duo High Valley — brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel — made their debut on the Grand Ole Opry. Last night, they graced country music’s most famous stage again when they stepped back inside the sacred circle for the first time as an Atlantic / Warner Music Nashville duo.

“While we have been on that stage before, it was really special and felt like the first time in many ways,” said High Valley’s Brad Rempel.  “It was so much fun to see a packed house and have everyone singing and clapping along,” replied High Valley’s Curtis Rempel.

The appearance was made even sweeter performing their top 30 and climbing lead single “Make You Mine” and “I Be U Be” from their upcoming November 18th album release, DEAR LIFE, available for pre-order now


Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots Invite Special Guests To Opry Stage


In the spirit of Bobby Bones And The Raging Idiots’ first full-length children’s album, THE RAGING KIDIOTS: KIDDY UP! available now, the comedy duo invited kids to join them up on stage at The Grand Ole Opry last night, during their performance of fan-favorite “When I Grow Up,” taken from the album. The special guests brought a refreshing twist to the night, that also saw the group comprised of Bobby Bones and Producer Eddie from iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, continue to bring the laughs with a humorous rendition of “If I Was Your Boyfriend” taken from their No. One comedy album THE CRITICS GIVE IT 5 STARS.

Bobby Bones, who was heralded by New York Times as “the biggest thing in country radio,” has proven to be one of the genre’s most influential tastemakers, breaking some of country music’s freshest talent. The host of iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, the show reaches millions of listeners on nearly 100 stations. Bobby Bones’ BARES BONES: I’M NOT LONELY IF YOU’RE READING THIS BOOK (Dey Street Books) spent four weeks on New York Times Bestsellers List following an overwhelming debut that saw the memoir claim the No. One spot on multiple lists including USA Today and Wall Street Journal. The release of his memoir came hot on the heels of Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots’ No. One debut EP THE RAGING IDIOTS PRESENTS – THE RAGING KIDIOTS, as well as their No. One comedy album THE CRITICS GIVE IT 5 STARS. Fans can catch the Black River artists at upcoming shows in Fort Smith, AR (10/7) and Dallas, TX (10/9). Bobby’s one-man comedy show, Bobby Bones: Funny And Alone, also continues to sell out venues with the next stop in St. Louis, MO (10/15) for two shows on the same night, with the first one having already sold-out.
