I'm sorry, but can anyone tell me who Jason Aldean is?

Hard to imagine a country star selling out in the Bay Area. Especially one who's name is not familiar beyond the country sector. I've heard of lots of country stars and this one must be a dark horse in the rodeo.

Maybe the fans are imported from beyond our borders.

I didn't know that people still listened to country music. Are the concert goers locals? Or do they drive in from the central valley? That could be the cause of the massive traffic jams.

Well, I know a number of neighbors going to hear Jason Aldean tonight--I think there are plenty of country western fans in Palo Alto, including me!

the name rings a bell -- if this is the "big green tractor" song guy, that is hilarious! I would not think this would be a locally popular act.

Never heard of him, so looked him up. Here is his wiki bio and yes, Big Green Tractor is mentioned Web Link

And here's the song on YouTube Web Link

Not the sort of music I would pay to see, but it seems he has a following.
