WATCH: Macon, Georgia Honor Their "Hometown Boy"

posted by Tammy Daye - 

Back in Feb of this year the Macon-Bibb County Commission unanimously voted in favor of the “Jason Aldean Way” measure. This month Aldean returned "home" for a benefit concert with 100% of tickets sales going towards the construction costs of a new chidlren's hospital in Macon that ultimately raised $700,000 and was also "bestowed" the honor which  is in large part due to Aldean’s contributions to Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health last year.

Aldean isn't the first artist to have their name featured throughout the Georgia city. Macon is already home to Little Richard Penniman Boulevard and the Otis Redding Bridge just to name a few.

Doesn't get much cooler than this. Having a street named after you in your hometown. #macon #georgiaboy #home
