Country music star Jason Aldean announced Thursday that he will include at least four Major League Baseball stadiums as stops on his 2014 Burn It Down Tour which begins May 1 and will make around 50 total stops.
One of those stadiums will be Cincinnati's own Great American Ballpark.
The 36-year old Atlanta Braves fan also revealed stops in Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, as well as Philadelphia. Aldean said that more ballpark stops may be in the works.
"To get a chance to go into some of these ballparks, especially where I grew up watching games, to me, it's a pretty big deal for us. I always thought I'd play them as an athlete, not so much as a musician. But at least now I can say I played the park, even if it was as a singer."
The Georgia native played at sellout crowds at both Fenway Park and Wrigley Field last year. He mentioned how much he enjoyed playing in that setting and wanted to take it to another level for his upcoming tour.
"Last year was really our first experience of going to play stadiums like that, and just to see the atmosphere that surrounded those shows was pretty incredible. It's just a really cool experience, not only for us, but also for the fans who came out to the shows. It's something we wanted to do more of this year. It's going to be a different experience for them, which is what you want it to be."
Aldean will be joined on tour by breakthrough group Florida Georgia Line as well as Tyler Farr. Miranda Lambert will also join Aldean on tour stops in Cincinnati an Pittsburgh. Last years AMA "Male Vocalist of the Year" has totaled 12 number one hits.
