Jason Aldean definitely has a busy week ahead of him. In addition to performing on the CMA Awards Nov. 9, where he’s nominated for Entertainer of the Year, he is also partnering with AMC to celebrate the network’s new Western series Hell On Wheels with a free concert Tues., Nov. 8.
The intimate, acoustic concert takes place at Riverfront Station, starting at 12:30 pm. A special “Hell on Wheels” train will bring Aldean and 120 contest winners to the location, and country music newcomer Margaret Durante will open the show. Aldean is scheduled to take the stage at 1:30 pm. The following day, the contest winners will attend the 45th Annual CMA Awards.
Hell On Wheels tells the story of a Confederate soldier (played by Anson Mount) who sets out to exact revenge on Union soldiers who murdered his wife. The journey takes him west to a lawless town called “Hell on Wheels” that lies along the Union Pacific line of the Transcontinental Railroad. Also starring in the series are Common, Dominique McElligott and Colm Meaney. The series premieres on AMC Sunday, Nov. 6 at 9 pm CT.
