Summerfest has announced its first 2013 Marcus Amphitheater headliner, and true to form, it's a country act: Jason Aldean. The Macon, Ga., native has been a country mainstay since his single “Hicktown,” a rollicking, irreverent ode to small towns everywhere, reached No. 10 on the country charts back in 2005. But it wasn’t until his third album, 2007's Wide Open, that Aldean truly emerged as one of the South’s most scintillating talents, with three consecutive songs peaking at No. 1. The first, “She’s Country,” became a crossover mega-hit, while the third, “The Truth,” was a lovelorn change-up that established Aldean as one of the genre's preeminent heart-breakers.

Aldean will play the Marcus Amphitheater on Saturday, June 29 with openers Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 30 at 10 a.m., though a limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 10 a.m. to people who follow Summerfest on Facebook or Twitter.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
