Jason Aldean is the reigning Academy of Country Music “Artist of the Decade.” He has seen trends come and go, helping to bring a few out of the shadows himself — like a Country-music Columbus making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”).

Aldean's performance before a near sell-out crowd at the Coliseum in 2010 came on the heels of his 13-month run atop of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The average ticket price was $36.75 and only hard tickets were accepted for entry. Tickets could still be purchased at Ticketmaster outlet locations. In Morgantown, that means you may have purchased your ticket at Giant Eagle on Greenbag Road. Mobile tickets were not an option.

Lee Brice is a two time Country Music Association/Academy of Country Music/Grammy "Song of the Year" nominee. In 2010, the respected singer/songwriter had just released his first studio album and his single  "Love Like Crazy" was climbing Billboard's "Hot Country Songs" chart.
"Aldean put on an energetic, while intimate show and played new and old favorites, including hits 'Why,' 'The Truth' and 'My Kind of Party'." – The Daily Athenaeum
