Garth Plays Invitation-Only Show + Jason Aldean's Interesting Way to Unwind

Garth played an invitation-only show for 700 at Nashville's Marathon Music Works last night for Country Radio Seminar. His full band and cameras were there and I hear we may see it on film sometime in the future.

Speaking of Garth, after a 5-month legal battle to keep secret the financial details of his tour launch last year at Chicago’s Allstate Arena, we now know they paid him 1.5 million up front, he got $100,000 per sold-out show and a prorated sum for the ones that didn’t sell out. The arena also greatly slashed their rental fee in hopes to entice him to kick the tour off there.

Randy Houser moved to Nashville in 1992 without no game plan then his car broke down and soon after he couldn’t pay his rent and was close to getting thrown out of his small duplex till a friend helped him. This year Randy will join Luke Bryan’s Kick Up the Dust tour that opens May 8.

Finally - at home Jason Aldean unwinds by watching TV and his favorite shows are not the typical unwinding type; Sons of Anarchy, Criminal Minds and Entourage.
