With more than 8 million records sold and 11 No. 1 hits under his belt, Jason Aldean is an 11-time CMT Music Award nominee and has been a CMT Artist of the Year honoree the last three years running. The third single off his platinum-selling fifth studio album Night Train, the fun dose of nostalgia, "1994," is currently storming up the Top 15. It follows seven consecutive No. 1s including Night Train's previous two singles "Take a Little Ride" and "The Only Way I Know," the latter featuring Luke Bryan and Eric Church. Aldean's biggest tour yet, the 2013 Night Train Tour, has sold out every show so far including his Madison Square Garden debut and the first ever show at the University of Georgia's Sanford Stadium where he played to 66,000 fans. More stadium dates on the books this year include two nights at Boston's Fenway Park (July 12 and 13) and Chicago's Wrigley Field (July 20).

As we prepare for the party, we want to answer a few of your questions:
Looking for tickets?

Thinking of buying when you get here?
Be cautious if you decide to purchase tickets from an unauthorized source. We can only guarantee the tickets sold directly from Ticketmaster and the Bridgestone Arena box office.
What time do I need to arrive at the awards?
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Doors will close promptly at 6:30 p.m. at which time all guests must be in their seats. The live telecast begins at 7 p.m.
What if I arrive late?
Please allow ample time for parking. Because this is a live television event, empty seats that appear on camera will be filled with seat fillers. Late arrivals will be held until a commercial break.
What should I wear?
We encourage all audience members to dress as if you are going to a concert or a night strolling Broadway. The best colors for TV are solid, medium and dark colors. We encourage all audience members to not wear big prints or white, as these don’t look good through the camera lens.
Why does my ticket say Mosh?
If you have purchased a ticket that says Mosh, this is the designation for a particular floor area. You can view a map on the Ticketmaster website. These tickets are standing room only, no seating, but you won’t want to sit down and miss a second of the music.
I have a ticket that says Obstructed View. What does that mean?
Due to the nature of live television productions, there may be unforeseen set pieces or production equipment which may cause part of your view to become limited. Please purchase accordingly.
PLEASE NOTE: Tickets cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.
CMT Music Awards fans are an important part of the energy of this show. We need your enthusiasm and whistles and cheers so please remain in your seat while we are broadcasting the show live. Besides, if you leave your seat, you never know what you may miss.
