Jason Aldean just announced that he'll be making the trek to Eau Claire, Wisc. to headline Country Jam 2012. The multi-platinum, chart-topping artist will be joined by some of the best names in country music, including Trace Adkins, Luke Bryan, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann, Justin Moore and LoCash Cowboys, with more artists to be added to the lineup soon.
The three-day festival, taking place July 19-21, 2012, is an amalgamation of all things country music. Tickets are on sale today at $119 a piece for three days' general admission. A one-day pass is available for $75, and reserve seats run from $180-$230.
Interested in going VIP? For $495, a VIP pass will get you VIP seating, parking, food and beverages. If you want to save on hotel fees, campsites start at $55 for the entire festival.
Having proven himself as a hitmaker to be reckoned with, Aldean sold more than 3.5 million copies of his first three records alone, with 10 of his singles climbing the charts and almost as many hitting No. 1 or 2. His most recent release, 2010's 'My Kinda Party,' saw Aldean flexing his musical muscles and landing a home on the country scene. To boot, the artist was nominated for five CMA Awards this year, tying Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift for the most nominations of the year. He took home the Album of the Year honors.
