Jason Aldean brings his chart toppers to the Alerus Center March 23


Today’s blog is written by Michaela Schell, a local writer and business professional.

Fresh off its biggest concert in the arena’s history, the Alerus Center brings yet another big name in country music to Grand Forks.

Jason Aldean will fill the Alerus with chart topping tunes on March 23rd at 7:00 PM. He brings with him country star Jake Owen and new-comer Thomas Rhett.


Now, I’ll be honest, I like country music and have definitely heard of Jason Aldean, but if you asked me to name a song he sang, I couldn’t.  So, I googled him.


As I went down my google search list of Aldean’s songs, I quickly realized found myself saying “Oh, I love that song! I didn’t know Jason Aldean sang that!” Here are just a few of his many hits that you’ve likely heard and probably had stuck in your head a time or two. (Click the link to hear the song)


Nine of Aldean’s singles have reached number one on the country charts and 16 have made it to the top 10. Aldean only released his first album in 2005, so that means he is just getting started!


As I saw just how many great songs Jason Aldean has to his name, I got more and more excited for this concert coming to Grand Forks. This will definitely be a concert the entire audience will be singing along with.


Now, if you are not yet anxious enough to get to this concert, maybe a few more toe tapping hits from Aldean’s opening acts will get you buying tickets.


Jake Owen joins Aldean on stage adding the country music hits of “Startin’ With Me, Eight Second Ride, and Barefoot, Blue Jean Night” to the music lineup. And, Thomas Rhett, a newcomer to the country music scene whose dad just happens to be country legend Rhett Akins, will get the night started with a few of his new, chart climbing singles like “Something to do with My Hands” and “Beer with Jesus.”


Will any concert beat the record George Straight and Martina McBride currently hold as the Alerus Center’s top ticket selling concert? I’m not sure. But, if I’d have to guess, I’d say Jason Aldean may just do it.
