Jason Aldean has just announced his 11th annual Concert for the Cure and this year the singer has a surprise partner in his fight to raise money for breast cancer research.
For this year’s event, Jason will taking his fundraising show to Nashville and is partnering with the Grand Ole Opry as part of their eighth annual Opry Goes Pink in October.
“Finding a cure for breast cancer is something I’ll continue to fight for the rest of my life,” Aldean said in a release. “Bringing the show back to Nashville this year as part of a special Opry performance where I will have so many friends and family in the crowd will be a good reminder of why we need to continue to fight this terrible disease.”
In addition to the multi-platinum superstar flipping the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the Grand Ole Opry’s two shows on Tuesday, October 25, Aldean will take the stage to perform along with other favorites and raise awareness and funds for Women Rock for the Cure, a Nashville-based non-profit committed to connecting and supporting young women facing breast cancer, and Susan G. Komen®’s Nashville Chapter. A host of artists joining Aldean for the Opry shows will be announced soon.
Tickets to the October shows are available at (615) 871-OPRY and opry.com with $5 of every ticket sold going to Women Rock For The Cure.
