Jason Aldean is Bonnaroo Bound Next Month for Two Nights – May 14th & 15th

Jason Aldean is returning to performing live for the first time in more than a year, and he’s kicking things off in a big way!

Jason will be playing back to back nights at The Bonnaroo Farms in Manchester, TN, May 14th and May 15th.

Jason jokes, “You could’ve asked me to play a gas station at this point and I would say ‘yes’.”

He adds, “Being able to setup the full show with all the band guys plugged in is going to make for a really good time. We’re going to turn it up – there’s nobody out there to bother – and make up for some lost time for sure.” 

The event will host a limited number of fans in socially distanced four-person pods, starting at $99 a pod.  Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (4/9) at 10:00A CT on JasonAldean.com and BonnarooFarm.com, with $1 from each ticket benefiting the Bonnaroo Works Fund.

Tickets will be sold in groups of four and will provide access to an 8’ x 8’ pod, with pods arranged to allow 6 feet of distance between groups. Fans are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to create their own comfortable space within their pod. Concessions and merchandise will be available on-site through mobile ordering. Masks will be required for all attendees when moving around the venue, but may be removed while inside their own reserved seating area. While camping is not available for this series, fans can find accommodations, places to eat and play at www.tnvacation.com. For more event details and guidelines, please visit BonnarooFarm.com.

Fans at the Bonnaroo Farm are sure to see this one — “Blame It On You” from Jason Aldean.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
