Jason Aldean sets stadium dates behind "Night Train"
Jason Aldean has released a string of summer ballpark dates in support of his brand-new effort, "Night Train."
The multi-platinum Georgia native has three shows spread around Texas this month, followed by some stadium gigs beginning in April 2013. New "Night Train" dates have been added at Athens, GA's Stanford Stadium (4/13); Boston's Fenway Park (7/13); and Chicago's Wrigley Field (7/20).
Aldean, who will be the first country artist to perform at Fenway Stadium, traveled to each venue to announce the respective shows.
"It takes a lot to make me nervous, but walking out of the dugout at Fenway this morning to announce our show there definitely did it," Aldean said. "It's the kind of moment you dream about your whole career, so I tried to take a minute to soak it up, but it's pretty overwhelming."
The CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee, who took home two Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year, released the long-awaited new collection, produced by Michael Knox, Oct. 16 via Broken Bow Records.
The effort follows his Grammy-nominated fourth studio set, "My Kinda Party," which surfaced in November 2010.
