SoundBytes: Jason Aldean, Scotty McCreery, Happy Mondays, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and more
-- Country stud Jason Aldean has announced plans for a 50-date summer arena and stadium tour in partnership with Major League Baseball. Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr are on the bill, and while dates and venues haven't been announced, Tampa is on the list. Does that mean Aldean will play a postgame concert for the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field? Possibly. But as we all know, the Rays don't play in "Tampa," and Aldean isn't playing stadiums in every city. A gig at the Tampa Bay Times Forum or MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre is also a possibility. Stay tuned.
