JASON ALDEAN with guest Luke Bryan coming to Ford Arena

w/ special guest

Saturday, January 29, 2010!

BEAUMONT, TX, September 28, 2009 – SMG, management company of Ford Park, is pleased to announce JASON ALDEAN with guest Luke Bryan coming to Ford Arena on Friday, January 29, 2010!

After selling two million copies of his first two albums, topping the charts with five smash hits, racking up award nominations and hitting every stop on the requisite “new artist” tour circuit for the last three years, country rocker Jason Aldean is running full throttle into 2010 on the momentum of the release of his third album, Wide Open with hits “She’s Country” and “Green Tractor.”

As the title implies, Wide Open celebrates the unlimited opportunities life offers, while recognizing the all-too-familiar speed bumps along the way. “Wide Open is the only way I know how to live,” explains Aldean. “. . . I’m pretty much an open book. I understand there may be hitches along the way, but if I’m in, I’m in no matter what.”

Though known for his unapologetic, southern-rock style, Aldean’s musical influences also reflect the more traditional end of the spectrum.

With a calendar full of dates and a power-packed set anchored with hits and highlighted by new material, Aldean has hit the road the only way conceivable —wide open.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, November 14 @ 10:00 am at Ford Park Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone at 800-745-3000 or Ticket prices are $34.75 and $27.75 (additional fees will apply).
