Jason Aldean Announces 2017 “Concert for the Cure” to Benefit Susan G. Komen Organization

Jason Aldean announced that his annual Concert for the Cure will take place during his They Don’t Know Tour stop on Oct. 20 at KFC YUM Center in Louisville, Ky.

Jason will donate a portion of all ticket sales garnered throughout the year to Komen Kentucky. Since 2004, Jason has helped raise more than $3 million to benefit Susan G. Komen chapters across the country. Susan G. Komen organizations fund more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.

“As long as I have the chance, I will do my part and raise awareness for this cause,” said Jason. “My fans keep fighting the battle with this terrible disease along with us, and our dream is that nobody has to fight the disease anymore.”

Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver will join Jason onstage for the Concert for the Cure on Oct. 20.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
