Jason Aldean hosted his annual Concert For The Cure to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation on Tuesday, October 25th at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Jason continues to donate a portion of each ticket sale throughout the year at the Concert for the Cure, with this year’s contribution taking the grand total to over 3.3 million dollars for the fight against breast cancer.

Its because of you guys the fans that we are able to give these checks to @susangkomen for breast cancer research and awareness. THANK YOU! #grandoleopry #oprygoespink #kickingbreastcancersass

“It was a pretty full-circle moment for me to be able to bring this show back to Nashville where it got started as we go over the three million dollar mark. I could see a lot of family and friends out in the audience this year, which is a big reminder that we still have to keep fighting this disease.”

In addition to performing, Jason flipped the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the Grand Ole Opry’s two shows. The evening also featured performances by Montgomery Gentry, Chris Young and Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott & The Scott Family.

Jason has been an avid supporter towards the fight against breast cancer since 2004, after losing a close friend to the disease. The Susan G. Komen Foundation recently named the superstar one of their “More Than Pink” Heroes for his impact in the fight against breast cancer.
