On Oct. 3, Jason Aldean held his annual Concert for the Cure at his Kitchen+Rooftop Bar on Nashville's lower Broadway. The country star presented a check for $459,509 to the Susan G. Komen Central Tennessee chapter.

The money was raised from ticket sales from Aldean's High Noon Neon Tour, which wrapped its run with the benefit concert.

Aldean has raised more than $3.6 million for the fight against breast cancer since 2004.

"All year long on the road, we hear stories from fans about how they've been affected by breast cancer," Aldean said in a press release. "It's crazy how just about everyone is close to someone who is or has fought this horrible disease ... We're going to keep doing our part in hopes that we never have to lose someone to breast cancer again."

Last month, Aldean returned to his home state of Georgia for Concert for the Kids, a benefit concert that supports a pediatric hospital in Macon, Georgia.

On Oct. 1, Aldean joined the entire country music community in remembering the victims of the 2017 Route 91 shooting.

"Thinking about our Route 91 family today," Aldean wrote.

In late September, Aldean performed at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas, where he honored the victims of Route 91 and the first responders who arrived on the scene that day. The country artist invited firefighters, EMTs and police officers to the stage to celebrate their heroism. He also praised the kindness and strength of the city of Las Vegas.

Aldean is nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards. The singer is also nominated for Single of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for his collaboration with Miranda Lambert, "Drowns the Whiskey."
