Jason Aldean is painting New Orleans pink!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and country megastar Aldean is once again doing his part to help support the effort and to take up the cause. The singer’s eighth annual Concert for the Cure will take place on Friday, Oct. 25 at the New Orleans stop of his sold-out Night Train Tour.

Throughout the year, the singer sets aside 50 cents from each concert ticket sold and then selects one show in October and donates all the proceeds to the local Susan G. Komen affiliate in the market in which he is performing. Last year, he donated in Dallas. This year, he’s handing the charity pot over to New Orleans.

Aldean is not random regarding his choice of city in which to donate. There’s a reason he selected NOLA.

“Last year the Komen New Orleans team needed a little over $1 million to meet all their needs, but they were only able to fund about half of that,” Aldean said in a press statement. “If we raise the half a million that we did last year in Dallas, we’ll be able to help these women meet their goal and provide the services the town needs. I can’t wait to see an arena full of pink in support of such a great cause!”

Aldean began his Concert for the Cure shows after losing a friend to the disease. Now, he does his part every year!
