Jason Aldean Tickets for Sale
Jason Aldean is having a rather tumultuous year in his personal life, but luckily his professional life is picking up in time to offer a distraction. These more musical developments include the announcement that he is hosting the CMT Awards with Kristen Bell and the announcement of a series of solo and country Megaticket concert dates scheduled over the course of the summer. These Jason Aldean tickets will be a welcome distraction for his fans as well, as Aldean has become a huge star in large part because of his ability to put on an incredible live show.
These concurrent tours have been scheduled in support of the album Night Train, which debuted in October 2012. So far the album has gone number one on the charts and platinum in record sales. The album already had one tour organized in its name, the 2013 Night Train Tour. These Megaticket shows are similar in nature to that tour, with more of a music festival atmosphere, considering the number and quality of performers on the bill.

Jason Aldine Williams was born on February 28, 1977 and raised in two households. During the school year he stayed home with his mother in Macon, Georgia. During the summer he spent time with his father in Homestead, Florida. It was when he was with his father that Jason discovered an interest and an innate skill for music. He came across this interest when his father was at work. Jason stayed home and began plucking at a guitar. His father noticed the interest and encouraged it, teaching his son to play classic country songs from artists like George Strait and Hank Williams, Jr.
When Jason finally decided to pursue music as a career he made a major decision, to change his name. Jason Williams became Jason Aldean. Newly named, he performed in college towns around Florida, Alabama, and Georgia until around the age of 21, when he made a major second decision, to move to Nashville.
The move to Nashville proved difficult. He did become a star immediately. In fact, he considered quitting the music business after talent scout consistently failed to show at his performances, “interested”” managers did not follow through, and the record label that initially brought him to the city had dropped him as an artist.
Finally, Lawrence Mathis showed up to a show, became his manager and found him a record deal with Broken Row Records. He has released five albums through the label. The first, a self-titled debut album, managed to go platinum. If this album had failed to do as well, Aldean may not have lasted much longer. But, “Hicktown”, “Why”, and “Amarillo Sky” went gold and the album excelled. Relentless and Wide Open continued his string of hit albums and songs like “She’s Country” and “Big Green Tractor” became platinum singles.
Jason Aldean’s biggest hit followed these hits. The album My Kinda Party became his first multi-platinum full-length recording and the title track, “Don’t You Wanna Stay”, and “Dirt Road Anthem” each went platinum or multi-platinum. This album and the impressive sales numbers for Jason Aldean tickets for the accompanying tour made it clear he had finally joined the upper echelon of country performers.
