Jason Aldean Unveils Madame Tussauds Nashville Wax Figure During Academy of Country Music Awards™ Weekend

The Newly Crowned Two-Time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Surprised
Fans With Madame Tussauds Nashville Wax Figure in Las Vegas

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#FamousFun–Madame Tussauds, the world-renowned wax attraction slated to open its
newest location in Nashville on April 14, and two-time ACM Entertainer
of the Year
 Jason Aldean, revealed the Country music superstar’s
first-ever wax figure at the Las Vegas MGM Grand during ACM Awards
weekend.


To create his figure, RIAA’s top digital Country male artist of all
time underwent a “sitting” with Madame Tussauds studio artists last
year. As Aldean donated clothing from his personal collection for his
figure’s attire, the research team took more than 300 measurements of
the singer in his signature hat and Gibson J-200 guitar.

The Multi-Platinum entertainer’s figure will be featured at Madame
Tussauds Nashville, joining an exclusive group of other current country
superstars already revealed including Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker and
Blake Shelton, among others. Aldean’s figure will be positioned in the
finale of the attraction on a Grand Ole Opry themed stage, giving guests
the chance to see one of their favorite artists up close and personal.

“It blows my mind how realistic it is — they got the chest hair and
everything,” laughed Aldean. “I have a lot of friends, like Luke Bryan,
that have gotten their figures and I’m looking forward to going to
Madame Tussauds in Nashville and seeing how everyone’s looks too.”

Additionally, ACM Awards host Luke Bryan welcomed his recently revealed
wax figure on-stage with him during the award show broadcast, allowing
for a Madame Tussauds takeover at County Music’s Biggest Party of the
Year.

Aldean, is “the mirror image of his fans” (Rolling Stone) as
THEY DON’T KNOW follows on the heels of each album release earning
PLATINUM certification or better, tallying more than 14 million total
album sales and 18 No. One hits. The longevity of his career reached new
heights as he debuted at the No. One position on Billboard’s all-genre
Top 200 Album chart for the third consecutive time with his seventh
studio album, which has already produced two consecutive chart-toppers,
as his latest single “Any Ol’ Barstool” follows its success. In addition
to the upcoming tour launch, the “reigning Entertainer of the Year shows
why he holds the title” (Newsday) as the Country Music Hall
of Fame and Museum will showcase a special exhibit opening its doors on
May 27, commemorating his wide-open sound that has been one of the
defining influences on today’s Country Music. For more information and
