Footage Includes 18 Songs, Personal Interviews and Special Guest Performances
Aldean Nominated for Three CMA Awards Including Entertainer of the Year
Nashville, TN – Sept. 12, 2013 – CMA Entertainer of the Year Nominee Jason Aldean is giving fans the opportunity to relive one of the biggest moments in country music this year when he releases the live concert film NIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA on Oct. 15. Filmed this past April at the University of Georgia's Sanford Stadium, the film captures the MULTI-PLATINUM Macon, GA native and a sold out crowd of over 66,000 fans making history with the first concert ever held “between the hedges.” A TackleBox Films production, the piece was produced by Shaun Silva, Ivan Dudensky and Don Lepore.
"That day in Athens will always be one of my proudest accomplishments," said Aldean. "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."
