Jason Aldean brings country to Fenway Park

Friday night, Jason Aldean played the first of his two sold-out shows at Fenway Park.

It was the first country concert at the park and given that it sold out in minutes, chances are Aldean’s Saturday show, which also sold out lickety split, won’t be the last. (Or at least the contemporary version of it that Aldean plays, which sometimes requires spelunking to find the “country” in some of his songs.) As he did at the Boston Strong benefit concert in May, Aldean came out swinging. As fireworks shot off the top of the stage, he lit into the barn burning “Crazy Town” and for 83 minutes kept up a brisk pace.
