[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jason Aldean[/lastfm] and his wife Jessica have a special Christmas tradition they do every year with their girls.
Every year on Christmas Eve, the Aldean’s jump in the car and take a look around town to see all the Christmas lights. “We always try to find a cool area where there’s a lot of lights for them to go look at,” Jason tells Lon Helton when he co-hosted CMT’s ‘Country Countdown USA’. “We’ll drive around a while and let them check that out, come home, then, my wife and my mom will bake some cookies for Santa Claus.”
Another important part of Christmas for Jason is food! “I make my wife cook me my favorite thing to eat, and I only get them at Christmas–sausage balls, which for some people may sound disgusting, but it’s sausage and cheese and they are insanely good! You don’t have to get me any presents, just make me those and I’m a happy man.” If it were that simple, Christmas shopping would be easy!
But the most important part of Christmas for Jason is making his kids happy. Jason and Jessica have 2 daughters, Keeley (7) and Kendyl (3). “My favorite Christmas memory with my kids is probably last year. My youngest daughter was old enough to get what was going on, and she came in and saw what Santa Claus had brought them, and her mouth just dropped open. She didn’t know what to do. It was the first year that both of my girls were old enough to get it. It was pretty cool just to see them come around the corner and see their faces when they saw all that stuff. They are seven and three. That’s what it’s all about right there.”
Gotta love family man Jason Aldean!
