Jason Aldean had never performed overseas until he played a few shows in Europe earlier this year as part of the C2C Festival with pals Luke Bryan and Brantley Gilbert. The experience has opened him up to the possibility of playing even more international dates in 2016.
Jason says of his European tour, “It was sort of an eye-opening thing for me to go over there and realize we have country music fans in places that I had no idea. Now, we’re talking about next year possibly going to Australia, which, apparently we do really well there, and I had no idea about that either.”
One of Jason’s biggest fans from Australia showed up at his fan club party earlier this month in Nashville, and she told him he has a lot of followers Down Under just waiting to see him perform live.
As for the possible tour of Australia, Jason says, “I’m excited that we’re finally starting to branch out a little bit. I used to think going to Canada was, like, going somewhere. You know what I mean? Now I’m getting ready to get on a plane for 18 hours or something. So, it’s cool, man. I’m loving it.”
