Jason Aldean has become one of the biggest superstars in contemporary country music thanks in no small part to the power of his amazing live shows. The rugged country star has made quite the name for himself as a live performer, selling out arenas all across the country on multiple headlining tours.

His superstar status grew out of humble beginnings, as Aldean worked to break into the country music stratosphere with early hits like "She's Country," "Big Green Tractor," "The Truth" and more while opening for top acts that included Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts and Brooks & Dunn. Now Aldean finds himself in that same elite class, headlining shows on top-drawing tours, and he's returned the favor, inviting burgeoning newcomers who are now stars in their own right to open for him, including Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Florida George Line and Jake Owen, among others.

Aldean is set to hit the road again in 2017 for his They Don't Know Tour, with Chris Young and newcomer Kane Brown as his support acts. The tour is slated to hit more than 30 cities in the U.S. in 2017, and Aldean will also make a special stop at Hunter Mountain in upstate New York, where he is set to headline at the 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival in June. Aldean will also headline at Country Jam 2017.
