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

Jason Aldean

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.

Toby Keith Tops Forbes List of Highest Paid Country Stars!

Toby Keith topped Forbes magazine’s list of this year’s highest-paid country artists with $65 million.  Toby is keeping it all in the family working his owl record label, playing his own bar, and drinking his own booze.

“I can put them on that 30-city tour. I don’t have to look for a place to play. It’s cost-effective as crap,” he explained. “They’re in Toby’s house. They’re drinking Toby’s liquor. That’s Toby’s act. And then we’re moving to the next town.”

Rounding out the top five are Taylor Swift ($64 million), Kenny Chesney ($44 million), Jason Aldean ($37 million), Luke Bryan ($34 million) and Zac Brown Band ($29 million). See the complete list here.

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.

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.”
