Jason returned to his hometown of Macon, GA to a sold out crowd for his second Concert For the Kids last Friday night (8/11). The event raised $702,209.43 for Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health, bringing the two year total to over $1.2 million raised. Before taking the stage, Jason spent the afternoon visiting patients and families at the hospital, and was honored by the revealing of “Jason Aldean Way”, the renaming of a portion of the street that runs along the Children’s Hospital.

“We are so very appreciative of Jason’s continued support for our patients at Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health, ” added Ninfa M. Saunders, DHA FACHE, President and CEO of Navicent Health. “Jason is a hometown hero who is truly giving back to our young patients and their families. We are most appreciative of his commitment to their healing and care.”

“Macon will always be my roots,” said Jason. “When I moved away to chase music, all I wanted to do was make my family and hometown proud. But, I’m just a singer. I’m honored to be able to do do what I do to help raise money, but the doctors and staff are the heroes and are changing these kids lives.”
