Jason Aldean’s first concert film, Night Train to Georgia, will be released Oct. 15 on DVD. It was filmed in April in Athens, Ga., where he played to more than 66,000 fans during a sold-out show at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium.
“That day in Athens will always be one of my proudest accomplishments,” the Macon, Ga., native said. “I’ve been working my whole career to get to this point where I can go into a stadium like Sanford, which I’ve idolized my whole life, and leave a mark. I watch it back now to remember the details because it was all overwhelming and a pretty surreal moment for me.”
Also featured in the 90-minute film are interviews from Aldean, footage from his recent record-breaking stadium shows at Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field and special appearances by Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan and Ludacris.
The 18-song set list featured on the DVD includes No. 1 hits such as “She’s Country,” “My Kinda Party,” “Take a Little Ride,” “Big Green Tractor,” “The Truth,” “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” “The Only Way I Know” and “Dirt Road Anthem.” Night Train to Georgia was produced by Shaun Silva, Ivan Dudensky and Don Lepore.
On Tuesday (Sept. 10), Aldean received three nominations for the 2013 CMA Awards, including his third consecutive entertainer of the year nod. In addition to a male vocalist nomination, he’s also up for musical event of the year for his collaboration with Bryan and Eric Church on “The Only Way I Know.”
