Jason Aldean is using his talents for good again. The country star announced on Thursday (June 22) that he'll be putting on a Concert for the Kids, a show benefitting Children's Hospital, Navicent Health, in his hometown of Macon, Georgia.

The show will go down on August 11 at Macon Coliseum. This is the second time he's putting on this show in two years, but it's the first time he's featuring his full band. Last year's event was an acoustic show that raised half a million dollars.

“Supporting these kids in Macon and their families is something that I’m really proud to be a part of,” Aldean said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to getting back to town, kicking things up a couple notches and hopefully raise a huge amount of money for the hospital so that they can continue to grow and serve my hometown community.”

Tickets for the Concert for the Kids go on sale through Live Nation on June 23 at 10 a.m. local time.

Earlier this year, Aldean was named Entertainer of the Year for the second time in a row at the ACM Awards. He is currently on his They Don't Know Tour (you can get tickets for that here). The tour kicked off in April and has amphitheater dates scheduled well into October.
