Aldean has consistently forged new directions since he rose to national prominence with his 2006 debut, "Hicktown." That song's power chords -- and his penchant for throwing a Guns N' Roses medley into his early concerts -- demonstrated his willingness to challenge the accepted boundaries of the country genre. Some of his subsequent hits -- particularly the farm-themed "Amarillo Sky," the pleading ballad "The Truth" and the million-selling sing-along "Big Green Tractor" -- cemented his country cred, in turn allowing him even more leeway for experimentation. "She's Country" adopted an in-your-face, AC/DC vibe. "Dirt Road Anthem" introduced Southern rap into mainstream country. And the Clarkson duet, "Don't You Wanna Stay," added a pop sheen to his career that hadn't been obvious before.
Venue Description: Opened in 1968, MSG is both a performance and sports arena (home to NBA basketball team the New York Knicks and the WNBA's New York Liberty; and to NHL hockey's New York Rangers).
