Tickets to Jason Aldean’s September 9 show at Boston’s Fenway Park with Kid Rock sold out in 90 minutes when they went on sale last month.  So Jason added a second show to happen the very next day, Saturday, September 10.  Jason and Kid will be joined by Thomas Rhett, A Thousand Horses, and Dee Jay Silver.

Fans who pre-order Dan+Shay’s new album will now be able to instantly download half the record, including the single “From the Ground Up,” “Already Ready,” “Road Trippin’,” “How Not To” and the title track.  Look for the full album in stores and online June 3.

The list of music’s biggest money makers is out and Kenny Chesney is country music’s biggest money-maker for 2015, according to a new list compiled by Billboard. Kenny raked in just under $40-million last year.  CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan also ranks in the top ten.  Jason Aldean, Shania Twain and Florida Georgia Line show in the top twenty, with Eric Church, Brad Paisley and Toby Keith finishing in the top-40 as well.  Country-turned-pop Taylor Swift comes in at number one overall, bringing home $73.5 million.
