Artist Updates: Aldean, Bryan, Bentley, Kane

Jason Aldean

Tickets for Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party Tour stop Feb. 24 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena went on sale earlier this morning (9/23), and promptly sold out in a matter of minutes. “It feels good to sell out any venue in any city, but to sell out your hometown is just an unbelievable feeling,” says Aldean. “I can’t wait to come home for this one…you can bet me and the boys in the band will be ready to go that night!” Aldean is tied for most nominations at this year’s CMA Awards (Nov. 9, 8-11 pm/EST on ABC), including Entertainer of the Year. Capitol Records artist Luke Bryan is set to open the show.

Luke Bryan

• Speaking of Luke, he’s set to start his six day “Farm Tour” next Thursday, September 29 in Clemson, SC. Proceeds from these shows will fund a scholarship for a student from a farming family in each community. Prior to launching the tour, Bryan will head to the west coast for his first appearance on Access Hollywood Live Monday, September 26 and The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Sept. 28. He’s also nominated for a CMA Award for New Artist of the Year.

Dierks Bentley

Also on television next week is Capitol Records artist Dierks Bentley, who will be performing a version of Pink Floyd’s classic “Wish You Were Here” Sept. 29 on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon as part of the show’s week-long tribute to the band. Other artists scheduled to play Pink Floyd’s songs include Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, The Shins, and MGMT.

The tour will span 16 cities nationwide, with additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks. Kane’s debut country album The House Rules is currently available for purchase, and its second single “Let Me Go” is climbing the charts.
