Jason Aldean has had quite a career thus far. He's sold over 20 million albums and conquered the charts 27 times with number one songs. Since his debut in 2005, he's had more songs in the Top 10 of Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart than any other act.

It might surprise you to find out that Sunday, August 20, 2023, will only be Aldean's second appearance at the Iowa State Fair. It was definitely time for a return trip.
