Jason Aldean earns applause for the cause

Jason Aldean is hosting his sixth annual "Concert for the Cure" to help raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer. This year's show is this Friday, September 30th in little ole Roanoke, VA (which Cousin JD informs me is the "Star City" of the South!) Jason will be donating proceeds from this year's show (as he always does) to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. He continues to perform these fundraisers in honor of his dear friend, Melissa, whom he lost to breast cancer when she was only 29 yrs old. Jason explains that "The day she passed away, my family decided that we would always do something to carry on her memory and to help in the fight." He even auctioned off a private meet and greet to this year's event which helped raise an additional $6,000. The lucky bidder won airfare and hotel to go along with the front row seats and backstage pass. No word on whether a Cheesy Western all the way from the Texas Tavern was included in the prize pack.
