Show Quotes

  1. “[‘First Time Again’] may very well be a single down the road. Who knows? We’ve got a ton of great stuff on the album, I feel like.” Jason Aldean
  2. “Growing up playing baseball, thinking that that’s what I was gonna pursue as a career. I never thought in a million years that I’d be playing Fenway Park as a singer. It’s cool. It’s a really cool way for me to mix two things that I am super passionate about and live out two dream at one time.” Jason Aldean
  3. “I just wanted to do something to make those [Fenway Park] shows extra special. So, we called [Kid Rock] up and he was willing to come hang out and have some fun for a couple of nights with us. I thought it would be great for and great for the fans of Boston.” Jason Aldean
