Since 2004, Jason has helped raise more than $3.6 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.

By donating a portion of his tickets sales throughout the year, Jason raised $332,848 in 2017 for Komen Kentucky.

“These women and their families are fighters,” said Jason. “We’ve been having them backstage every night for the last couple years now and I’ve heard their stories first-hand. We’re going to keep fighting with them until there’s no more breast cancer.”

Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver joined Jason as performers at the 2017 Concert for the Cure.

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.
