Jason Aldean at Komen New Orleans

Jason Aldean pitched in for the fight against breast cancer again this year for the eighth straight year, holding his annual “Concert For The Cure” benefit on the sold-out New Orleans stop of his Night Train tour. The Oct. 25 show, his first-ever in New Orleans, raised more than $575,000 for Komen New Orleans grants for breast cancer screening, research, and education.

“New Orleans needs this money as badly as anyone right now,” said Aldean. “I can’t tell you how happy I am to give them this check! Like pretty much everyone I know, I’ve lost someone I love to breast cancer and I don’t want anyone else to have to go through that. For all you ladies out there – we love the rack… save ’em, alright!”

Aldean, who donates 50 cents from every ticket sold to a local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation somewhere each year, wrapped up his Night Train tour in Dallas over the weekend. He heads into CMA Week with three nominations, including his third consecutive Entertainer of the Year nomination.
