Jason Aldean created a lot of buzz around him and his wife when it came to what he was going to name his son. They definitely kept all their fans in suspense. We heard different things like “We want something original and unique because our names [Brittany and Jason] are so common.” We also knew they talked about a family name because they are having the first boy for both sides of the family in years. This is what Jason Aldean told Westwood One’s Country Countdown USA as to why they decided on Memphis:

“I’ve kinda been infatuated with Elvis since I was a kid just always watching like documentaries and stuff on him. And so I just thought… it had a little bit to do with that and honestly that was it I just wanted to 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 he’ll be somewhat… It’s won’t be like Michael or John or you know Jason. And that was kinda what we were going for.”
