Aldean Army assemble! Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany, are asking for fans to help them beat some of Nashville’s most popular couples in the “Battle of the Boos.” It’s a contest to see which couple can raise the most money for Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue.

In addition to the Aldeans, the other couples include Caroline and Luke Bryan, Abby and Dan Smyers, Nicole and Luke Combs, Summer and Jon Pardi, and Katelyn and Kane Brown.

They each have 72 hours to see whose fans can raise the most money for the animal shelter. The Aldeans had an early lead on Wednesday with nearly $3,500 donated. The Bryans were in second with $2,300. The competition ends Saturday at noon.

Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue is a Nashville-based no-kill shelter that “believes every animal they rescue deserves to be treated for any and all medical needs. …,” according to the donation website.

“Whether young and healthy or old and in need of much care, all are precious in our sight! Help us help “HIS” helpless.”

Jason Aldean Calls Out His Competition

Jason Aldean posted about the challenge on all of his social media accounts.

“ALDEAN ARMY We need ur help! click link in bio to donate to @TNProverbs1210. There is no way in hell we can let these other couples beat us. You only have 72 hrs so go now!! It’s all in good fun and everything goes to the animals. #battleofthebooshttps://battleoftheboos.swell.gives,” he tweeted.

In the video, as Brittany reads off the list of other couples taking part in the event, Jason Aldean gives a funny running commentary on each one. As an example, he jokingly calls the Browns “The clowns,” and the Pardis “party killers.”

All jokes aside, the competition hopes to raise a lot of money for Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue. It’s a popular charity in country music circles. Dan and Abby Smyers even included it in their wedding registry when they got married in 2017, according to The Boot. Guests could donate to the animal rescue in lieu of gifts.

That’s because Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue has helped thousands of pets find a forever home since it was founded in 2006, the nonprofit says on its website. Though to be able to do that, the charity estimates that it costs about half a million dollars a year to run its facilities.
