Listen to Jason Aldean on iHeartRadio
Jason Aldean is showing his support for the recovery efforts following last month's Boston Marathon bombings. The country star was among the performers at last night's Boston Strong benefit.
During his set the singer admitted he wasn't born or raised in Boston, but earned cheers of approval in describing himself as "a huge Red Sox fan." He also treated the crowd to a number of songs, including his hit "Tattoos On This Town."
The band Boston launched the event with an instrumental rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner," while many stars with Boston roots, ranging from James Taylor to Bel Biv Devoe to Aerosmith were featured at the fundraiser. But a number of other stars who -- like Aldean -- aren't specifically liked to the city lent their time to the event as well.
New Kids On The Block, Jimmy Buffett, Dropkick Murphys, Carole King, and the J. Geils Band are just some of the artists who took the stage at Boston's TD Garden for the special show, which was also streamed online. Money raised through Boston Strong is going to the One Fund Boston.
