CMT on Tour Features Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum

Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum will launch CMT on Tour ’08 on Oct. 8 in Cullowhee, N.C., with 20 dates scheduled through Nov. 22. Tickets go on sale Aug. 22. The itinerary includes many college towns where young crowds make up a large percentage of Aldean’s fan base. New artist Eric Durrance will hold the opening slot. “It is such a surreal feeling to look behind the bus and see semi trucks with my name on them,” says Aldean. “Even as this thing grows, our fans are the same young kids that have always come out to the club shows. They come to forget about school or work or whatever and have a good time, so that’s what we are going to give them.” See tour dates.
