Jason Aldean Sets Date for 2018 Concert for the Kids Charity Event
Continuing his long tradition of using his talents to benefit the lives of others, Jason Aldean has announced the details for this third-annual Concert for the Kids charity event.
The 2018 event is scheduled to take place on Sept. 6 in Aldean's home state of Georgia, with proceeds going to the Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, a part of Navicent Health.
“There are a lot of reasons I love doing what I do, but being able to give back to these kids and their families is definitely really important to me," says the father of three and soon to be father of four in a press release. "We’ve been able to help support the build of an entirely new facility, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the community shows up for the hospital this year and what we can do to keep helping the people there."

The live concert, which will take place at the Macon Coliseum in Georgia, will also feature the talents of fellow Georgia native Lauren Alaina.
"We are so grateful to Jason and his entire team,” adds Ellen Terrell, Chief Development Officer at Navicent Health, in a press release. "This will be the third year he has done a concert benefiting the sick and injured kids cared for at the Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital. We just can’t thank him enough."
Since the inception of Concert for the Kids, Aldean has helped raise more than a million dollars for the facility, which serves as the region’s only dedicated pediatric facility. The announcement comes one day before Aldean readies himself to take the stage as part of his High Noon Neon Tour at Atlanta Braves’ new SunTrust Park stadium on Saturday (July 21).
