Jason Aldean Sings at Boston Strong Benefit

He may have been born and raised in Georgia, but last night Jason Aldean was “Boston Strong.”

Jason was one of more than a dozen acts to take to the stage at the TD Garden for a charity concert to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

He didn’t waste a moment of his 20-minute set, blazing through hits like “Take a Little Ride,” “Dirt Road Anthem,” “My Kinda Party” and “Tattoos on this Town” to the delight of the sold out crowd.

Jason, who played alongside such diverse Boston-bred artists as Aerosmith, James Taylor and New Kids on the Block, did pause briefly to say, “It’s a huge honor for me to be here with everybody else who is here tonight. You guys probably already know this, I’m not from Boston but I’m a huge Red Sox fan if that makes any difference.”

Judging from the cheers, it certainly did.

Jason returns to Boston in July for two sold-out shows at Fenway Park.
