Jason Aldean: ‘Boston Has Some of the Best Country Music Fans’
Jason Aldean crossed an item off his bucket list this summer when he performed before a sold-out crowd at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., as part of the final two shows on Kenny Chesney's 2015 The Big Revival Tour. For the Georgia native, who has been selling out arenas and amphitheaters on his own 2015 Burn It Down Tour, the experience was unforgettable.
"People who don’t know, Boston has some of the best country music fans," Aldean tells The Boot. "Ten years ago, if you had told me that, I would have said, 'There’s no chance,' but they have some of the best fans there are, anywhere. A couple years ago, I played Fenway. We did two nights there, [and] every time we go up there, it’s been great."
"There’s nothing else like it," Aldean adds. "We had the owner out there. We had four Super Bowl trophies on stage with us. It’s one of those things where, it’s the perfect way to end the tour.
"It’s a great area," he continues. "It’s a place where you wouldn’t consider a huge country music market, [but] it is one of the coolest places to play."
Aldean has had plenty of his own success headlining stadiums as well, including becoming the first country artist to headline the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, last year.
“It’s no secret that I grew up dreaming of playing baseball stadiums,” Aldean says. “I thought it would be as a first baseman, but playing them as a musician is just as sweet!"
