Jason Aldean Isn’t Going to Talk Your Ear Off During His Concerts

Image Courtesy Broken Bow RecordsJason Aldean tries to keep his mouth shut during his shows unless he's actually singing one of his hit songs. You won't find the superstar doing a lot of talking to the audience in between songs.

He says, "They don't come out to hear me talk. You know what I’m saying? So, they come out, we're gonna try to play as many songs as we can play."

Most of those hit songs, like "Johnny Cash" and "When She Says Baby," are designed to get fans on their feet. Jason and his band have been together for more than a decade now, but they still put their all into delivering those hits during the show.

"[The fans] know that when the show is over, I'm gonna be exhausted 'cause I'm gonna try to go out there and give it everything I've got," Jason says. "My  band, obviously, they're one of the best in the business. They do the same thing. I think that's what really makes it work is that it's all of us up there doing that."

That team effort creates the kind of atmosphere Jason wants fans to experience at his concerts.

He adds, "Anybody that's been to one of our shows knows that it's gonna be loud and it's gonna be fun, and that's what we want."

Jason's Burn It Down tour continues this weekend with shows in Ohio, Illinois and Iowa.

Kenny Chesney Explains Why He’s Launching His Tour in Nashville

Danny ClinchKenny Chesney has a good reason for kicking off his Big Revival tour in Nashville this Thursday and Friday.

Chesney turns 47 on Thursday, and he wanted to celebrate it with a special woman in his life. He explains to USA Today, "My mom wanted to be with me on my birthday, but I wanted to open my tour on my birthday, which meant I had to do it pretty close to home."

Chesney took a cue from Major League Baseball and took part in his own "spring training" earlier this year to prepare for the tour. He went on a strict diet that includes not eating carbs after 5 p.m., "and that's tough. But I eat a lot of vegetables."  He also works out one hour per day.

Chesney's crew is surely looking forward to the dates ahead on the tour -- and the possibility for a big payday. The singer says he will put his crew's names into a hat for a monthly drawing to win proceeds from merchandise sales. In the past, he explains, "they ended up splitting it amongst everybody, so not just one person got it. They could have, but they decided to take the money and split it, which is great."
