Following the release of his new album My Kinda Party, Jason Aldean has announced the 2011 My Kinda Party Tour. The 32 city trek gets underway January 21 in Little Rock, AR, and features special guests Eric Church and the JaneDear girls.
“This is the tour I’ve dreamed about putting together my whole life. My band has never been tighter, and I finally have enough material and the kinda production to really take the songs to that next level for the fans,” says Aldean. “This one is for my Mom, who used to drive me to clubs when I wasn’t even 16 yet, wait on me to play the same Alabama, John Anderson and George Strait covers every night, then drive me home and make me do my homework before bed. We’ve come a long way!”
Initial dates on the My Kinda Party Tour:
Jan. 21 – Little Rock, AR
Jan. 22 – Fayetteville, AR
Jan. 28 – Columbia, MO
Jan. 29 – Tulsa, OK
Jan. 30 – Lubbock, TX
