Two of the biggest touring acts in country music will collide in 2015. Kenny Chesney’s newly announced Big Revival Tour will merge with Jason Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour for 10 stadium shows in summer 2015.

“We’ve played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock,” Chesney said. “There aren’t a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I’m glad we’re able to bring both of our tours together for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us.”

After performances from yet-to-be-announced opening acts, Aldean will take the stage with his show with Chesney closing down the night. Aldean is up to the challenge of headlining a stadium with Kenny Chesney. Continue Reading

Jason Aldean recently reached No. 1 for the 12th time with “Burnin’ It Down.” The song, featured on his new album, Old Boots, New Dirt, was cowritten by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, along with Chris Tompkins and Rodney Clawson. The song was supposed to be a hit for the duo, but the pair knew they would not be able to release it for at least another year.

“The timing was tough on it,” Tyler Hubbard told ABC News Radio. “We were listening to it one day, and I think it was B.K. that said, ‘Hey dude, I think Jason would kill this song. We should try to give it to him, and at least let him hear it.’ And next thing we know, he’s cutting it.” Continue Reading
