Tour Bus Life Is a Giant Slumber Party for Jason Aldean’s Daughters
For Jason Aldean‘s daughters, life doesn’t get much better than having a dad who’s a famous country star. Especially because when Aldean is on tour, he lets his little girls treat his tour bus like one giant slumber party.
Think about it: Those tiny bunks that artists sleep in on tour buses are a lot like kid-sized forts. So when Aldean chose to take his daughters out on tour for a while, he let them decorate their bunks however they wanted.
“They went and picked out their own stuff,” Aldean told CMT before his Wrigley Field show in Chicago. “So Kendyl’s is everything Minnie Mouse, and Keeley has peace signs on everything in her bunk.”
Even though the girls’ favorite colors don’t match the rest of the bus, the ‘Night Train’ hitmaker doesn’t mind. He just wants his kids to have a good time.
“The colors don’t match rest of my bus, but it was their deal,” he adds. “And since they picked it all out, now when they get on the bus, they have something that’s really theirs. It’s important for them to come out and give them their own little space.”
Aldean’s daughters are so used to having a daddy that has made a career out of country music that it’s normal for them to pack up and hit the road for a few weeks at a time.
“They love getting on the bus. It’s like a big slumber party for them,” he said. “And Keeley was 3 when I was touring with Miranda [Lambert] all the time. So she’s known Miranda for seven years. And they’ve known Luke [Bryan] forever, too. So it’s always ‘Mr. Luke this’ and ‘Miss Miranda that.'”
Even though Aldean’s girls love living out of the tour bus, he likes to spend time with them at home, too. Every summer, the award-winning country star takes off five or six weeks so he can focus on being a daddy to Kendyl and Keeley without any distractions.
For now, the girls will have to settle for seeing their daddy out on the road — but that doesn’t sound like it’s a huge sacrifice for them. Aldean will be traveling extensively through the end of October on his 2013 Night Train Tour.
