Walmart Soundcheck Features Jason Aldean Behind-the Scenes Interviews. As Jason Aldean continues to prep for his 2013 Night Train Tour, his fans can get exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews from Walmart Soundcheck! We get a sneak peak into his tour by hearing him play new songs “Night Train” and “Take a Little Ride” off his new album, Night Train. We also get to hear Jason discuss his tour, Nashville, and his new album. “This Night Train album is an album that we had two years to go out and find songs for, plenty of time to go in the studio. We spent more time making this record than we have any other album. I feel like we have some of the best songs we’ve ever had on this record.”-Jason Aldean WATCH Jason’s Tour Promo: WATCH Jason’s Interview about His Fans: You can also check out Jason’s Soundcheck concert!

Luke Bryan and Cabela’s Begin Multi-Year Partnership and Collaborations. Country music and the outdoors always seem to go together, and now Luke Bryan and Cabela’s, the World’s Foremost Outfitter for all our outdoor needs, are teaming up to bring us even more reasons to love both. They are co-branding a marketing campaign which includes products in Cabela’s stores and catalog, as well as behind-the-scenes outdoor adventures of Luke’s life off the stage. “My love for the outdoors is something that has been a part of me ever since I can remember. It seems there was never a time when we weren’t hunting, fishing, farming or playing outside since I was very young. Teaming with Cabela’s is such a natural fit for me.” –Luke Bryan Bryan’s not the only one excited about the partnership. Scott Williams, EVP and Chief/Marketing/E-Commerce Officer for Cabela’s, shares his opinions on their recent announcement: “Luke is the perfect partner for Cabela’s as he combines a lifelong love of the outdoors along with strong country roots. This passion comes through in everything that Luke does- from his hunting and fishing, to his music. We’re really excited to welcome Luke to the Cabela’s family.” In January, Bryan launches his first headlining tour, “The Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” sponsored by Cabela’s. We’ll keep you updated with all the information on his tour, so keep checking back with us. In the meantime, crank up your Luke Bryan songs, head outside for a while in your Cabela’s gear, and make sure you buy your tickets before they sell out!

King George is hittin’ the road again! We’ve got your scoop on the schedule for the 2013 George Strait tour! Updated with tour dates! Well George Strait fans, we’ve known it was coming for a while now, and the day is finally here! On September 4th, Team Strait posted the following on the official GS facebook account: From Team Strait: Hey George Strait Fans! It is time to get excited about the 2013 George Strait Tour. George will be holding a press conference in late September and will be announcing his tour dates for next year. Rumor has it that other major announcements may be made as well. Stay tuned for further updates. And now there’s a press conference scheduled for today at 12:35pm Central with a big announcement. We know the tour will be covered, but the big mystery is around what the other announcement will be. George has always had amazing tour partners so perhaps it’s another powerhouse pairing? Other fans are guessing that it’s a retirement, but for the sake of the rest of us who live to see George on tour I’m hoping that’s not the case! Either way, the minute the press conference starts we will be updating this post as well as live-sharing the news on Twitter (@CountryMusicNB) and on FaceBook (Facebook.com/MyCountryMusic).
