According to KLON-TV, “Tyson got some good news Monday. The Make-a-Wish foundation is sending his family to Disney World next week, and a package full of autographed memorabilia was sent to Tyson from his favorite country star, Jason Aldean. In addition to the autographs Tyson also got 4 tickets to see Jason in Concert and backstage passes. The family is planning to go to see Jason Aldean in concert in Illinois May 11th or 12th after they return from Disney World, but they need help coming up with the air fare.“
