Jason Aldean Flyaway Raises $7,500 for Charity
Over three dozen Jason Aldean fans battled with their wallets for a chance to see the singer next week in Roanoke, Va. A recent eBay auction offered a Friday night flyaway to see the show from the front row, meet Aldean backstage and come home with a suitcase full of autographed gear. The Rockin the Ribbon Concert benefits Susan G. Kohmen for the Cure.
The nearly week-long auction topped out at $7,500 Saturday afternoon, with 80 percent of the money going to help fight breast cancer. The normally tough-shelled singer showed his more sensitive side by offering this package to his fans. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 'Dirt Road Anthem' singer sporting some pink on stage Friday night, although it's doubtful he'll match the pink Justin boots the winner gets to take home.
Last week Aldean revealed a video for his new song that many may find as tearjerking as the cause he's playing for Friday night. The 'Tattoos on This Town' video stays true to the song before following the main character overseas towards the end. He's fighting for our country, and when he doesn't come home safely his wife and family -- not to mention viewers -- are shattered. The song is Aldean's fourth single from the 'My Kinda Party' album.
