This Saturday round up your straw hats and cowboy boots for one of the most annually anticipated concerts for New England country lovers right here at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. With five of the hottest acts in the country world, the 7th annual Country Fest lineup will win over even the Southern cynics- with highly successful songstress Sara Evans playing alongside newcomers like Easton Corbin for what has proved to be an unforgettable night year after year.
Headlining the New England Country Music Fest is Brad Paisley, singer-songwriter and guitarist honored as the ACM 2008 Vocalist of the Year. With all seven of his studio albums having gone platinum, 15 of his 25 singles reaching no. 1 on the Billboard Country chart and plenty of charm, Brad Paisley is a bona fide star. In early August Paisley confirmed that his first greatest hits album, titled Hits Alive. The double-disc collection Hits Alive, will be one disc of Paisley’s personal favorite studio tracks of Paisley and the companion disc will feature all previously unreleased or live versions, with an expected release date of early November. Darius Rucker, lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Hootie & the Blowfish, began a solo career in country music in 2008 after 22 years with the ‘90s rock band. The genre-switch landed Rucker not only a performance on Grand Ole Opry, but also a platinum album and a welcoming embrace into the country world.
Easton Corbin is a fresh face in the country world, rising to fame following the debut of his single “A Little More Country than That” in 2009. Corbin has since been touring with Paisley as part of his H2O 2010 tour. Jason Aldean released three country albums independently which yielded his no. 1 singles, “Why”, “She’s Country”, “Big Green Tractor” and “The Truth”. Aldean picked up 3 nominations at this year’s CMT Music Awards in Video and Male Video for “The Truth”, as well as collaborative video and CMT performance for “Heaven” with Bryan Adams. Sara Evans is the quintessential ‘90s country girl, having released six studio albums in the last fifteen years and having received numerous awards such as Vocalist of the Year and 50 Most Performed Songs. Together, the five artists make up a stellar assembly of contemporary country. (more)
While traveling the nation all summer long for a series of performances at festivals and special events, country star Jason Aldean decided he just wasn’t ready to call it quits yet. That’s why come September, Alden will stay on the road for his own headline run of the nation’s arenas. The next leg of Aldean’s Wide Open Tour is scheduled to kick off September 10th at the Expo Center in Corbin, KY, and runs through a November 20th show in Duluth, GA.
The 25-date tour will feature guest opening appearances from Luke Bryan and Uncle Kracker throughout the fall. 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 “new artist” tour circuit for the last three years, country rocker Jason Aldean has been running full throttle since the release of his highly anticipated third album Wide Open in April.
An earlier leg of the Wide Open Tour fared well throughout the US, selling out in 39 cities. “We’ve had such a great year with some really big songs and our first big arena tour, and I’m just not ready to move on from it quite yet,” Aldean said regarding the extension of his tour. Jason Aldean’s summer run continues July 16 with an appearance at the Craven Country Jamboree in Crave in Canada. The current itinerary features more than 20 performances, and takes a brief break after an August 29 event at CMAC in Canandaigua, NY before picking up the pace again through November.
