Aldean donated $332,848 of this year’s ticket sales to Komen Kentucky as part of his longstanding partnership with the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Since 2004, his efforts have raised more than $3.6 million for Komen chapters throughout the country, according to a statement.

“These women and their families are fighters,” Aldean said. “We’ve been having them backstage every night for the last couple years now and I’ve heard their stories first-hand. We’re going to keep fighting with them until there’s no more breast cancer.”

“We are so appreciative of Jason’s gift, which will help us to continue providing resources for those affected by breast cancer in our community,” said Lynda Weeks, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Kentucky.

Aldean’s set at Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas was interrupted when a shooter opened fire from a hotel room and killed 58 people and wounded hundreds of others.

Aldean made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” just six days later to cover Tom Petty’s “I Won’t back Down.” Aldean’s current tour, with Chris Young and Kane Brown, is coming to a close, with dates in New Orleans, Tupelo and Bossier City Oct. 26-28 followed by the Country Rising benefit at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Nov. 12.

Pollstar has box office reports from the current tour, including Sept. 16 at Isleta Amphitheatre in Albuquerque, N.M., Sept. 16, which sold out 15,337 tickets and grossed $738,065, MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa Aug. 18 (sold out, 19,389, just over $1 million), and 24,563 tickets (sold out) for the Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in Noblesville, Ind., July 15.
