Jason Aldean Performs ‘My Home’s in Alabama’ With Randy Owen at Nashville Concert [WATCH]
Jason Aldean took his 2015 Burn It Down Tour to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Feb. 21, and fans were treated to a special -- and surprise -- guest. Alabama's Randy Owen joined Aldean on stage for two of Alabama's biggest hits, "My Home's in Alabama" and "Tennessee River."
“It’s not a surprise that one of my biggest influences was Alabama,” Aldean said from stage. “So we thought we’d play a couple of those old Alabama songs. Make some noise for Randy Owen!”
“Cole and Tyler are two of the hottest up-and-coming artists out right now, and I really dig what they do in their live shows," Aldean explains of his decision to invite the two acts out on tour. "They are also just great friends, so it’ll be cool to have them out and see what kind of trouble we can get into together.”
The Georgia native is also helping support breast cancer research during his 2015 Burn It Down Tour. In advance of his 10th annual Concert for the Cure in West Palm Beach, Fla., this fall, Aldean is setting aside a portion of ticket sales from each show to benefit South Florida's Susan G. Komen Foundation, as well as honoring two breast cancer survivors at each concert.
“We’re always looking for ways to raise more money for Komen, but it’s also really important to me to take time to support people in all stages of the battle against this disease,” he says. “This year, we’re going to be sure we take the time every night to single out and celebrate a couple of fans who have won the fight and hopefully beat our record with a huge check for Komen this fall.”
Aldean will spend the next several days performing in Europe, before returning to the United States. A list of shows are available on his website.
