Country music’s hottest festival, Boots and Hearts, announced that Jason Aldean will be headlining the country music festival which takes place August 2-4, 2013 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, marking his first Canadian concert date for 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR. Aldean’s appearance at Boots and Hearts will be his only Ontario gig in 2013 and early bird tickets go on sale on Friday, November 9, 2012 at 9 am EST at www.bootsandhearts.com with a special rate of $169.99 until November 26th for a three-day general admission ticket.
“It’s hard to articulate how ecstatic we are to know that Jason Aldean will be headlining Boots & Hearts this year,” said Shannon McNevan, Managing Director, Partner, Republic Live 2013 Inc. “The exit surveys we conducted last year had him as the fan’s top choice by a landslide for this year’s headliner. We went after him hard, and thankfully his team loved the site, and believed that we would be a good fit. After seeing that he sold out Fenway Park a couple weeks ago in seven minutes, and breaking the records with his first single off Night Train we feel honored that he chose us as his only Ontario date for 2013. Looks like our fans were clearly right…Aldean’s the new king of the road.”
NIGHT TRAIN (Broken Bow), was the third-highest debut in all genres of music this year and the second highest in country since 2010. The total more than doubles the first week of sales of Jason’s previous album, the Triple Platinum MY KINDA PARTY. The next stops for Night Train include a live performance later tonight at the Country Music Association Awards where he is nominated “Entertainer of the Year”, “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Single of the Year.”
In an industry where artists are rarely able to attain both commercial success and critical acclaim, Aldean is bucking the trend with over 7 million records sold and 10 No. one hits along with outstanding reviews and recent accolades for the release of NIGHT TRAIN.
Entertainment Weekly awards the album an A- and calls Aldean’s delivery “EPIC.”

With more than seven million records sold and 10 No. one hits under his belt, Jason Aldean just released one of 2012’s most buzzed about new albums, NIGHT TRAIN, which sold over 409,000 copies its first week. The album’s first single, “Take A Little Ride”, has already had a three-week reign at No. one and set multiple sales and radio airplay records. Aldean just wrapped his MY KINDA PARTY TOUR, which sold out every show and sold more than 1.9 million tickets. He recently announced that he will play at least three stadiums in 2013 including a two-night stand at Boston’s Fenway Park which was the fastest sellout in the history of the 100-year-old historic park.
