ACM "ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR" JASON ALDEAN GARNERS MORE THAN $500,000 FOR HOMETOWN CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
Aldean Returned To Macon, GA For Intimate Benefit Concert
Taking the stage for the first time since earning this year's ACM "Entertainer of the Year" title, Jason Aldean celebrated with his hometown of Macon, GA, while raising over $500,000 for Children's Hospital, Navicent Health. Every ticket was instantly snatched to the exclusive event held at the city's downtown historic Grand Opera House, as familiar faces were treated to an intimate stripped-down performance. The impressive amount of money raised by Bibb County benefits the only dedicated pediatric facility in central Georgia that enhances the lives of children through patient care, research and education.
"Pretty overwhelming the amount of money that was raised by the community of Macon last night and I couldn't be more proud to call it my hometown," shares Aldean. "Every single penny helps an organization that means a lot to me and I can't thank everyone enough for helping these kids. Emotions were running high seeing all those faces familiar faces come out to support."
"We are thrilled and so very appreciative that Jason took time from his busy schedule to visit Macon and offer an exclusive performance for the benefit of our patients at Children's Hospital, Navicent Health. Our young patients and their families are grateful for his support and advocacy," said Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, President and CEO of Navicent Health.
Aldean recently released his "muscular new single" (Rolling Stone) "Lights Come On" as the lead single from his upcoming seventh studio album, which immediately reached the No. One spot on Billboard's Country Digital Songs chart upon release. He will return to the road as his SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR launches May 19th in Rogers, AR with continued support from Thomas Rhett and A Thousand Horses.
