Jason Aldean To Stream Concert On Tidal


Jason Aldean has revealed plans for a live concert that will be available for streaming exclusively though Jay Z's music service Tidal. The event will take place Thursday, June 11 in Nashville and Aldean will perform in front of a small studio audience who also won tickets through Tidal.

Aldean previously pulled his music from Spotify and says he has thrown his weight behind Tidal because they're attempting to offer artists and writers a better deal.

"If artists want to go out and spend their own money to make a record and just go and give them away, you can do whatever you want, that's your deal," he tells Rolling Stone Country. "But for most people, a record company signs them, fronts them the money to cut these records. If you can't sell records [and people are] just getting it for free, you have no way to pay [the record company] back. In turn, the record company's just not going to keep you there. They're going to cut you from the label, and it's just really not fair to artists, especially new artists. At least TIDAL is trying to get [the music business] back on track and in the right direction."
