Jason Aldean has kicked off his Ride All Night Tour and there are plenty of firsts.

“I’m always excited for the tour, to change things up,” Aldean told ABC News. “We get like a new design for the stage, and get to go out with new stuff. It’s like Christmas morning for us…And it makes the shows fun. It doesn’t feel like we’re doing the same thing we did last year.”


The Georgia native previously gave fans a sneak peek of his upcoming stage on social media.

The name of the tour comes from a track on Aldean’s Rearview Town album, which features hits like “You Make It Easy,” “Drowns The Whiskey” and the title track “Rearview Town.”

“‘Ride All Night’ is one of the songs on the record. I don’t even really know what the hell it means,” he laughed. “It’s just a cool name for the tour.”

Aldean will be joined on the road by two of his favorite artists: Kane Brown and Carly Pearce.

“Kane was out with us a couple years ago, and I just kind of hit it off with him,” explained Aldean. “He’s kind of become my little brother almost, and so when I go on tour, I mean, I wanna be out there with guys that I like hanging out with, and it doesn’t hurt that Kane’s on fire right now. I mean, he’s hot as it gets, so I’m just excited to have him back out. I’m excited to see his show, but also just to kind of have a buddy out there on tour with us for the year.”

“Carly, I think it’s great to have a female out on the show just to kind of change it up a little bit,” he continued. “We had Lauren Alaina out last year, and I thought that worked out really well, so Carly, coming off a big year, she’s doing really well, so I think it’s gonna be fun.”

The country hit-maker has garnered 7 number one hits throughout his musical career and continues to sell out arenas and stadiums all across the nation.

Aldean will perform in Syracuse on Thursday, Maryland on Friday and will be joined by Brown and Pearce for the Saturday show in New Jersey.
