Jason Aldean is among the artists who will be part of this weekend and next weekend’s C2C Country to Country Festival in Europe, and this will be his first time ever going overseas to play. Jason says, “I’ve heard stories of other artists going over there and playing and just kind of getting feedback on what it was like over there.”
He’s heard a lot of great things about how the European fans are embracing country music, but Jason is excited to be able to help further eliminate any stereotypes or misconceptions people might have about modern country music. He says, “For us to be able to go over there and go, ‘Okay, this ain’t your granddaddy’s country music anymore. This is what it is.’ And it’s completely different than what I think a lot of people think. So for me that was a big part of wanting to go over and sort of go, ‘This is what’s going on now,’ and just try to create some excitement over there so that hopefully this is something we can keep going back and doing all over the world.
Jason is also looking forward to being a tourist, since this will be his first trip ever to Europe. Other artists on the C2C bill include Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Kip Moore, Brantley Gilbert, Florida Georgia Line and Brandy Clark. The festival will play Sweden and Norway on February 28th and March 1st, and London and Dublin on March 7th and 8th. You can get more information about C2C here.
