Jason Aldean Says He’s Inspired By Meeting Breast Cancer Survivors

By: Renee Grant

Jason Aldean is not only an amazing artist, he’s also truly a class act. As a part of a partnership with the Susan G. Komen charity that supports breast cancer research and supports survivors of the disease, Aldean spends the day with a survivor before each of his concert performances. The country crooner

The country crooner has dinner with his special guests, and they hang out backstage with Aldean, his band, and his crew.

“You meet a lot of great people and hear a lot of great stories,” he tells Taste of Country. “It’s just cool to even be able to sort of roll out the red carpet for them for a day and let them have a great time. I really enjoy that a lot.”

Aldean also talks about raising $700,000 for a children’s hospital in his hometown of Macon, GA, and the joy of giving back.

“I want to try to do something for my hometown, sort of give back to where I came from — what better what to do that than with kids,” he says. “I got two kids and one on the way … and I would be devastated if something happened to one of my kids.”
