Self-titled, his album that year earned him a Best New Male Vocalist award from the Academy of Country Music and went certified platinum. Another two albums over the following four years also managed platinum status, a third went double-platinum, and his most recent venture, Night Train, is on-pace to sell a comparable number of copies.
Aldean’s Summerfest act precedes a performance at Wrigley Field on July 20th. Both shows will be part of his 2013 Night Train Tour, his 10th tour as a solo-artist. Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett will be featured at the Summerfest performance, joining Aldean in playing a selection of hit-titles.
The show is also part of the extensive line-up of country acts coming to Milwaukee this year. Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney were both in the city in May, Underwood playing the BMO Harris Bradley Center while Chesney was at Miller Park. Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan will also headline the Amphitheater at Summerfest in 2013, and Blake Shelton will be at the Bradley Center in September.
