Fans of country star Jason Aldean are in for a treat. According to ABC News on Jan. 9, the Grammy-nominated singer has announced that he is launching a new tour for 2014, which will include stops at baseball parks across the country.

Aldean made the announcement on “Good Morning America” after tweeting clues about the tour through his Twitter account. The 36-year-old country singer has teamed up with Major League Baseball for the tour. In the announcement on “GMA” on Thursday he said:

“This year I wanted to make a big announcement and I actually partnered up with Major League Baseball to kick off a new tour. It’s called the ‘Burn it Down Tour.’”

Aldean said he will be releasing his tour stops periodically throughout the year, but four of the baseball stadiums have been decided with a possibility of other baseball parks. Teaming up with MLB fulfills a dream for Aldean who had a childhood dream of being a professional baseball player. Although he won’t be playing baseball, he still gets to perform in these parks as a different kind of star.

“To get the chance to go into some of these ballparks – especially where I grew up watching games –to me, it’s a pretty big deal for us. I always thought I’d play them as an athlete, not so much as a musician. But at least now I can say I played the park, even if it was as a singer.”

Jason Aldean has already had success performing shows at Major League ballparks. Back in July, he sold out crowds at both Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. He actually smashed attendance records and is hoping to have similar success when he performs at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., PNC Park in Pittsburgh and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

The 50 cities “Burn it Down” tour will begin on May 1.
