RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time Jason Aldean with bring his Jason Aldean: They Don’t Know Tour to the KFC Yum! Center in downtown Louisville Oct. 20.

Named after the only country album to claim the top spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart in 2016 that’s “packed with stadium-size songs and arena-ready hooks” (The Boston Globe), the multi-platinum entertainer is sure to bring that same energy to the stage while boasting support from special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver.

In addition to the tour, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum recently opened a special exhibit honoring Aldean when it opened its doors May 27, commemorating his wide-open sound that has been one of the defining influences on today’s country music.

“Country music’s hard-rocking everyman” is “the mirror image of his fans” (Rolling Stone) as his recent album “They Don’t Know” follows on the heels of each album release earning platinum certification or better, tallying more than 14 million total album sales and 18 No. 1 hits.

The longevity of his career reached new heights as he debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart for the third consecutive time with his seventh studio album, which has already produced two-consecutive chart-toppers. The ACM Entertainer of the Year incorporates his traditional roots into his nostalgic single “Any Ol’ Barstool,” as it serves as “a throwback to the early music that helped catapult Aldean into the spotlight more than a decade ago” (Forbes).

With five albums to his credit, GRAMMY® nominee Chris Young has amassed eight No. 1 singles, and 15 gold/platinum certifications including “Gettin’ You Home,” “Voices,” “Tomorrow,” “I’m Comin’ Over” and his most recent Grammy and CMA nominated No. 1 “Think Of You” with Cassadee Pope serving as the fastest-rising single of his career. Released in November of 2015 and debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Young’s first co-produced album, “I’m Comin’ Over,” includes the new single, “Sober Saturday Night” featuring Vince Gill and the platinum certified, three-week No. 1 smash title-track, earning him four ACM Awards nominations, including his first in the coveted album of the year category as the artist and producer and a Billboard Music Awards nomination for top country song.
