Traveling from one city to the next to bring his music to new audiences has become a family affair for Jason Aldean, who’s currently in the midst of his HIGHWAY DESPERADO Tour. Most recently, the country star has been making his way through the West Coast with his wife Brittany Aldean and their two kids, Memphis and Navy, by his side.
Taking to social media on Tuesday (Oct. 17), Brittany shared a look into the side to tour life that fans often don’t get to see. The compilation of clips features a slew of heartwarming moments between the family of four including cozy nights in on the bus, enjoying the backstage hangs with the crew and bandmates, and of course, watching from sidestage as Aldean entertains the packed-out crowds of fans.
At the end, viewers see Aldean trading his cowboy hat for his dad hat as he makes sure both kids feel his love.
Family Is A Priority For The Couple
Aldean’s “Days Like These” off his 2010 album, My Kinda Party, serves as the soundtrack to the reel of special parenting moments, signaling how fast these memories with the kids will go by as they grow more and more each day.
Sharing the same sentiment in her caption, Brittany wrote, “It’s true what they say, the days are long but the years are short🚍”
Both Brittany and Jason Aldean have made it known that family is a top priority for them, as they are rarely seen embarking on adventures without their kids.
The Georgia native will wrap up his current trek on Saturday, October 28 in Tampa, FL, just days before dropping his 11th studio album, HIGHWAY DESPERADO.
Album Coming Soon
With its completed 14-tracks, the new project will be available Friday, November 3 and includes three tracks co-written by Aldean. In anticipation for fans to hear the new set of music, Aldean dropped several advanced releases including “Let Your Boys Be Country,” “Tough Crowd,” the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single, “Try That In A Small Town,” and most recently, “Whiskey Drink.”
Co-written by Kurt Allison, Jonathan Edwards, Tully Kennedy, and John Morgan, the mid-tempo “Whiskey Drink” finds the country star making every attempt to drown out the painful memories of his ex and “smoke out that regret.”
“Come on, kick in, whiskey drink/ I don’t wanna think, think, think/ About who she’s with or where she is/ Or how bad I miss her now/ Come on, cigarette/ Yeah, smoke out that regret/ Pour it straight and strong, make her memory gone/ Before you let me leave/ Come on, whiskey drink, oh/ Come on, whiskey drink,” Aldean delivers on the chorus.
While reflecting on the project as a whole, Aldean revealed that the title was inspired by his time on the road for his recent sold-out headlining arena tour as well as his early years as a touring artist.
“I think when I look back on it, I built my career early on my live show, and have been on the road touring since I was 18 years old. For us, touring is our favorite part. Getting on the bus and going town to town and playing our shows and doing our thing and seeing the fans… the title for the tour and album was really inspired from that,” he previously shared in a statement.
HIGHWAY DESPERADO follows Aldean’s double 10th studio album, MACON, GEORGIA, which spawned hits such as “Trouble with a Heartbreak” and “If I Didn’t Love You,” his chart-topping duet with Carrie Underwood.
Tour Wraps Up Soon
Fans have to wait just a few more weeks before they can get their hands on Aldean’s new album, but in the meantime, they can still catch him on tour through October 28, when the trek is set to wrap in Tampa, Florida at the Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre.
Jason Aldean’s next scheduled tour date is set for October 19 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH.
