Yes you read that right, Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean, two of the biggest names in the country music scene, will head to Target Field on July 18, 2015. Whether the Twins right the ship or not, I can confirm I have not been this excited about an event at Target Field since the All Star Game last season.

The Minnesota Twins official Twitter account broke the news early this morning, and a story on the official website detailed things to a further extent. As the event draws closer, you can bet that country music fans will continue to clamor for the opportunity to see the two performers live.
Kenny Chesney said, “We’ve played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock. There aren’t a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I’m glad we’re able to bring both of our tours together for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us!”
Jason Aldean also commented saying, “Kenny is the guy everybody in country music looks up to when they think about workin’ hard, building your career out on the road and getting to eventually play stadiums. When we first started dipping our toe into that business a few years ago, he’s the guy I would call or text for advice. We have a real friendship. Don’t get me wrong… that doesn’t mean I’m going to make it easy to follow me every night… he’s gonna have to work for it harder than he ever has before!”
At this time, complete ticket information and a final artist list is not yet announced. Stay tuned for details!
