Country music superstar Jason Aldean’s visit to his hometown of Macon, Georgia, last weekend with his expecting wife, Brittany, was an eventful one.

Not only did the 40-year-old crooner perform to a sold-out crowd at his second “Concert For The Kids” on Aug. 11, but he also received a special honor, as Macon-Bibb County and Navicent Health surprised him with a street named in his honor: “Jason Aldean Way.”

Jason shared his excitement about the reveal on Instagram. “Doesn’t get much cooler than this. Having a street named after you in your hometown. #macon #georgiaboy #home,” he proudly wrote.

The street sign was the city’s way of thanking Jason for raising more than half a million dollars at his first “Concert For The Kids,” benefitting the local Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital. This year, he helped raised more than $700,000 to assist in the development of Macon’s new Children’s Hospital.

“What a great weekend here in my hometown of Macon, Georgia,” Jason captioned on Instagram, alongside a photo featuring his visit with patients and their families, ahead of the show. “Thanks to everyone who helped make the Concert for the Kids a success. #georgiapride #thankyoumacon.”

The organization also shared an Instagram shot of Jason and Brittany spending time with local patients and fans.

“Macon will always be my roots,” Jason said of his homecoming in a statement. “When I moved away to chase music, all I wanted to do was make my family and hometown proud. But, I’m just a singer. I’m honored to be able to do do what I do to help raise money, but the doctors and staff are the heroes and are changing these kids’ lives.”
