Expectant Parent Jason Aldean Explains His Elvis-Influenced Baby Name

Expectant Parent Jason Aldean Explains His Elvis-Influenced Baby Name

Jason Aldean and wife Brittany are expecting the birth of their first son in late November/early December. While Jason and Brittany continue planning for their upcoming bundle of joy, the couple has already taken care of one very important detail: his name, which will be Memphis.

While the Tennessee city might seem like an unconventional moniker for a Georgia native to name his son, Jason revealed to Lon Helton on Westwood One’s Country Countdown USA that Elvis Presley, who moved to Memphis when he was 13 years old, helped inspire the name.

“I’ve kinda been infatuated with Elvis since I was a kid, just always watching documentaries and stuff on him,” said Jason. “It had a little bit to do with that and, honestly, I just wanted him to have something that wasn’t very common. I’m sure he’s gonna meet people with the name Memphis—he won’t be the only one, but, you know, at least I think it’s unique enough where  . . . it won’t be like Michael or John or, you know, Jason. And that was kinda what we were going for.

“His middle name will be Aldine, because that’s my middle name. I want to carry that name on. It was my grandfather’s name. So it’s kind of a family name. So that’s what we’re going with.”

We finally got our lil man's room ready for him. Can't wait to meet you and bring you home to ur new room, Memphis.

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
