RaeLynn Kicking off Music in Our Schools Tour Saturday at Disney World

Image Courtesy BMLGRaeLynn is kicking off the Music in Our Schools tour with a performance at Walt Disney World in Florida Saturday. She'll perform as part of Festival Disney, a national competitive music event for high school students.  From there, RaeLynn will visit music students at five schools across the country.

RaeLynn can't wait to share her story with the next generation of music makers.  Looking back on her school days, she says, "The way for me to be creative was being in choir and being in orchestra because you know, I wasn't the kid that was good in sports. I was the kid that was always writing songs and playing my guitar. So, having those electives was always so awesome every day because it was my way to learn more about the craft that I wanted to do in the future."

RaeLynn is hitting the road with Rascal Flatts this summer.

Jason Aldean Introducing His Brand of Country Music to Europe

Image Courtesy CMAJason Aldean closes out his first-ever shows in Europe this weekend as the C2C Country to Country Festival wraps up. He's on the bill with Lady Antebellum, Brantley Gilbert and Florida Georgia Line at London's O2 Arena Saturday and Sunday, and Jason has had a blast playing tourist in between shows in Sweden, Ireland and Norway.

Before he left for the trek, Jason said, "I think it's fun to go see things and be a tourist and get to play for people who have never heard your music or seen a show or any of that stuff."

A big reason Jason wanted to tour in Europe is to introduce fans to his more aggressive style of country music.

"I still think there's a lot of misconceptions around the world about what country music is. Like, what today's country music is," Jason explains. "For us to be able to go, 'OK, this ain't your grandaddy's country music anymore. This is what it is.' And it's completely different than what, I think, a lot of people think."

In the future, Jason hopes to play more shows in Europe and possibly expand these package concerts to other continents, too.

Says Jason, "I think it would be huge, not only for me, but for country music in general."

Jason brings his tour back home to the U.S. March 26 with a show in Toledo, Ohio.
