Jason Aldean and wife Brittany welcome a son

Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany, welcomed a son on Friday.

Memphis Aldean Williams was born in Nashville and weighed in at 9 lbs., 5 oz.

In an Instagram post celebrating the arrival of his "little man," Athens native Aldean noted the "roller coaster ride" of the past year, a reference, no doubt, to the mass killing in Las Vegas in October. Aldean was performing onstage during the Route 91 Harvest Festival when the shooting began and was rushed to safety with the then-pregnant Brittany.

In her own Instagram post, Brittany called the birth of Memphis the happiest day of her life.
