Who: Jason Aldean, Luke Combs, Lauren Alaina
When: September 15, 2018
Where: Budweiser Stage, Toronto, ON
Last night, Jason Aldean brought his High Noon Neon Tour to Budweiser Stage in Toronto, ON to the delight of country fans in and around the city. Along for the ride were fellow American country artists, Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina.
Georgia native Lauren Alaina captured America’s hearts when she competed on Season 10 of American Idol. In 2017, Lauren followed up her No. 1 debuting first album, Wildflower, with the release of the critically-acclaimed Road Less Traveled. The album landed on multiple end-of-year “Best Of” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone and Amazon, and it became the top-streamed female country album release of the year. Praised as “full of life lessons and uplift” (PEOPLE), the collection of 12 songs all written by the young star includes Lauren’s first No. 1 hit, title track “Road Less Traveled.”
Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Luke Combs stormed onto the country music landscape as “one of the format’s burliest and brightest stars” (Vulture) with three consecutive No. 1 hit radio singles – “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours” and “One Number Away” from his GOLD-certified debut album, This One’s for You. The iHeart Radio Awards “Best New Country Artist” released This One’s for You Too, a 17 track expanded collection of his critically acclaimed debut album, on June 1 – with 5 brand new tracks that landed at No. 1 on Billboard Country Albums Chart, No. 4 on Billboard 200 Chart and immediately charted in the Top 10 on iTunes All-Genre Songs Chart.
The risks and their rewards electrify the 15 new tracks found on two-time, reigning and current ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean’s ferociously confident eighth studio album REARVIEW TOWN which was released April 13. Joining forces with longtime producer Michael Knox, the hard-charging tracks snaking between stadium-sized guitar anthems, heartfelt country minimalism and hip-hop swagger, lead off with the enthusiastically-received Top 10 and climbing lead single, “You Make It Easy.”

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
