Jason Aldean Returns To The Road With His “They Don’t Know” Tour
New 33-City Tour Announcement Coincides With Details for Country Music Hall Of Fame’s Upcoming Aldean Exhibit, Opening May 27
RIAA’s top digital Country male artist of all time, Jason Aldean, makes plans to return to the road as he announces details for his JASON ALDEAN: THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR, launching in Toledo, OH, on Apr. 27. Named after the only Country album to claim the top spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart in 2016 that’s “packed with stadium-size songs and arena-ready hooks” (The Boston Globe), the Multi-PLATINUM entertainer is sure to bring that same energy to the stage while boasting support from special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver. Tickets for the first dates will be available beginning Jan. 20 at 7:30A CT on JasonAldean.com and LiveNation.com. Select cities are also part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket which go on sale Jan. 27 at www.megaticket.com. Live Nation is the official promoter of the tour.
“It only takes a couple weeks off the road before I get that itch, and I’m already feeling it,” said Aldean. “We’re going to spend some time switching the production up to be bigger and louder than anything we’ve ever done. It’ll be cool to have Chris back out with us and Kane is the right guy to get the fans riled up.”

In addition to the new tour, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced that a special exhibit honoring Aldean will open its doors on May 27, commemorating his wide-open sound that has been one of the defining influences on today’s Country Music. “Country music’s hard-rocking everyman” is “the mirror image of his fans” (Rolling Stone) as his recent album THEY DON’T KNOW follows on the heels of each album release earning PLATINUM certification or better, tallying more than 14 million total album sales and 18 No. one hits. The longevity of his career reached new heights as he debuted at the No. One position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart for the third consecutive time with his seventh studio album, which has already produced two consecutive chart-toppers. The ACM Entertainer of the Year incorporates his traditional roots into his nostalgic single “Any Ol’ Barstool,” as it serves as “a throwback to the early music that helped catapult Aldean into the spotlight more than a decade ago” (Forbes).
With five albums to his credit, GRAMMY® nominee Chris Young has amassed eight No. One singles, and fifteen Gold/Platinum certifications including “Gettin’ You Home,” “Voices,” “Tomorrow,” “I’m Comin’ Over” and his most recent Grammy and CMA nominated No. One “Think Of You” with Cassadee Pope serving as the fastest-rising single of his career. Released in November of 2015 and debuting at No. One on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Young’s first co-produced album, I’m Comin’ Over, includes the new single, “Sober Saturday Night” featuring Vince Gill and the PLATINUM certified, three-week No. One smash title-track, earning him four ACM Awards nominations, including his first in the coveted Album of the Year category as both the artist and producer, and a Billboard Music Awards nomination for Top Country Song.
