CHICAGO, Jan. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corona Light, the number one light beer import, will be the lead sponsor behind the summer leg of ACM “Artist of the Decade” Jason Aldean’s 2020 WE BACK TOUR.

Corona Light is committed to providing fans 21 and older with a crisp, light-beer option at only 99 calories to enjoy year-round, whether at a concert or at the beach. *

About Jason Aldean After almost 15 years at the top of his format, three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean has seen trends come and go. He’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, like a Country-music Columbus making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul - with the upcoming release of his ninth studio album 9 as the album’s fiery lead single “We Back” rounds out the first-released songs, and “in characteristic Aldean fashion, it explodes into a hard-rock country anthem” (Rolling Stone). As a dominant force on the charts, Aldean has scored 23 No. Ones at radio and is the only Country act in history to top the all-genre Billboard 200 four times (in a row, no less), while racking up 15 billion streams and more than 18 million albums sold along the way.
