Jason Aldean is celebrating his youngest son Memphis’ sixth birthday.
On Friday (Dec. 1) the country star honored his mini-me with a note shared via Instagram that shows just how much love he has for his son.
“Can’t believe You are 6 years old today buddy. Happy birthday to the coolest lil guy I know. We all love u so much and are so thankful for you. Hope u have the best day ever!!! 🎉 #MemphisAldean,” he wrote alongside a slideshow of photos, beginning with a candid image of Memphis smiling from ear to ear.
The remainder of the post showcases the six-year-old’s bright personality through various snapshots of his life in the country, on the road, and hanging out with his younger sister, Navy.
Aldean’s wife, Brittany also expressed her heartfelt emotions for the special day as she took to the comment section of the post dedicated to their son to write, “My little love❤️ Can’t believe he’s 6.”
Balancing Work, Life And Family
While the “If I Didn’t Love You” singer maintains a very busy touring schedule throughout the year, he still makes his family a top priority. The family of four are often seen enjoying life on the road together and taking part in Jason Aldean’s musical endeavors. Most recently, the Macon, GA native recruited his wife and kids to be featured in the new music video for his current single, “Let Your Boys Be Country.”
Throughout the clips, Aldean and his wife are seen showing Navy and Memphis the ropes when it comes to taking part in all their favorite aspects of growing up in the country, from hunting to working in the hayfields, caring for their animals, fishing and more.
Co-written by Allison Veltz Cruz, Jaron Boyer, and Micah Wilshire, the small-town anthem celebrates the best of a rural upbringing and all the benefits of raising kids in an environment that praises a strong work ethic, good manners, and getting a little rowdy on a Friday night.
The reigning ACM Artist of the Decade sings directly from the heart while reminiscing on the way he grew up and how that made him the person he is today.
“Yeah, them cheeks, let ’em fall for a small town girl / Let everything inside these county lines be his whole world / You want him to grow up to be someone he’s damn proud to be / Mamas, let your boys be country,” Jason Aldean delivers on the chorus.
