Jason Aldean absolutely will not back down when it comes to playing for his fans.
In the aftermath of the Vegas tragedy that took 58 innocent lives and wounded hundreds more during his set on the Las Vegas Strip, some fans wondered if Jason would be able to get onstage again.
He not only came back, but he’s bigger and louder than ever before to honor his fans and stand up to terror and violence.
“The Bobby Bones Show” posted video from Jason’s set at the Country Rising benefit over the weekend, where he told the crowd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, “I love getting up every day and playing music and playing my shows for you guys, and I’ll be damned if anybody is ever gonna stop me from doing that.”
So Jason did what he does best, he “cranked it up a notch” and went harder than ever to bring his best show to the thousands in the crowd.
And the crowd went wild.
George Strait, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Keith Urban and Chris Stapleton also took part in the evening of music that raised more than $4 million for hurricane recovery efforts and the Las Vegas shooting victims.
Poor Carrie Underwood was supposed to sing as well, but ended up having to cancel her appearance due to an accident at home that sent her to the ER.
We applaud all these artists and love them so much for their willingness to give back, and for the love and support they continue to show the fans throughout this troubling time.
Jason is now nominated for Tour of the Year and Fan Moment of the Year in the Rare Country Awards, and it’s up to you to decide the winners. Vote now at RareCountryAwards.com until Dec. 13. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
