Watch Jason Aldean Perform at Heritage Elementary School

Last week, third grader Waylon Weaver was assigned Teacher of the Day at Heritage Elementary School. He brought to his class some special guests that included his Father/Songwriter Justin Weaver, along with two country artists Tyler Farr, and Jason Aldean.

The class asked questions and then the musicians performed a song for the class.

Teacher of the Day is an annual event at HES, created by fourth-grade teacher Wendy Millar.

The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will open an exhibit on the life of Jason Aldean, two-time and reigning Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, in the exhibition Jason Aldean: Asphalt Cowboy, Presented by Field & Stream, opening May 26.
