“New Orleans needs this money as badly as anyone right now,” said Aldean from the stage. “I can’t tell you how happy I am to give them this check! Like pretty much everyone I know, I've lost someone I love to breast cancer and I don't want anyone else to have to go through that. For all you ladies out there - we love the rack... save 'em, alright!"

 

Aldean is heading into the final stretch of what has been a career-defining year, recently notching his 12th No. one single, "Night Train," earning three CMA Award nominations including his third consecutive Entertainer of the Year nod and being selected as one of five CMT Artists of the Year honorees.
