In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, [lastfm]Jason Aldean[/lastfm] will donate all proceeds from his October 15 show at Roberts Stadium in Evansville, Indiana to Susan G. Komen for the Cure as part of his 5th Annual Concert For The Cure.
The cause is certainly close to Jason’s heart. He shares, “Most of my long-time fans know that I had a really good friend die of breast cancer when she was only 29. The day she passed away, my family decided that we would always do something to carry on her memory and to help in the fight.” Aldean adds, “Everybody I know has been touched by it…they say a woman dies every 69 seconds from it. October is breast cancer awareness month, and it just felt like the right time to do our event this year. We’re taking it out of Nashville this year too, so that fans from other parts of the country can be involved. It’s going to be a great night.” To make a donation, you also can log on to Jason’s website at jasonaldean.com. Look for Alean’s fourth studio album,My Kinda Party, to hit stores on November 2
