“Baby On Board” For Aldean

When Jason Aldean hits the road this week for his High Noon Neon Tour, he will have a new traveling companion: His 6-month old son Memphis.  Jason told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton he’s made plans to bring his baby boy on the road:

“Yeah he’s gonna be out. Different stuff happens with him every day, and I don’t wanna miss out on that, so I wanna have them around as much as possible. I’m sure there will be times when she doesn’t feel like loading up on the bus for a couple weeks at a time. So she’s probably gonna stay at home some with him. But he’s definitely gonna be out there a lot. More than anything, we’re trying to balance that. He goes to bed just as I’m doing my meet & greet. It’s just a different vibe. It’s not something I’ve dealt with before.  It’s going to be interesting to see how that works out.”

Did you baby-proof your bus? “Yeah, we had a crib built on our bus. He basically gets into a bunk and we zip him in, so he can’t fall out.  Summertime, we’re playing a lot of amphitheaters, so we’ll get him a swimming pool to keep outside the bus. We kind of have our own city backstage when we’re playing shows.  It’s a different day in the old Aldean cap, but it’ll be fun.”

Jason has been off the road since Memphis was born in December.  He told Lon he’s spent a lot of time with his baby boy: “He’s been a lot of fun. It’s crazy to think of myself as a new parent, because I have two older daughters.  But it’s been a while since I’ve had a baby at hoe. There’s a lot I’ve forgot. It’s been fun having him around, and getting to know his personality.”

So how would Jason describe that personality? “He definitely has a temper!  He eats like every two hours. When he gets hungry, he’s hard to deal with. Other than that, he’s actually a real happy baby. He laughs and smiles all the time. He’s not a cranky kid.  He’s content most of the time, but when he gets hungry or tied, he’s got a set of lungs on him. If I can reel that in, he’ll be a hell of a singer.”

How is he different from your girls when they were babies? “He’s a lot more active, that’s for sure.  If you put him in bed, he starts to spin.  He’s really active, and I don’t remember them being like that.  So when he learns to walk, it’s going to be hard to keep up with.”
