At a time when it’s easy for the news of the day take you to a dark place, Jason Aldean has released an ethereal music video for his newest single, “Got What I Got.” And he didn’t have to look too far to cast the piece – it’s his own beautiful family, including wife Brittany and children Keeley, Kendyl, Memphis and Navy.
Shot near their vacation home in the Florida panhandle, the footage includes heartwarming shots of the family enjoying a sunny day on the beach.
Fans are also treated to the clips of the incredibly close bond the couple’s children have with each other. But the focus is on the beautifully close relationship between Jason and Brittany – one that came under deep criticism early on, but has flourished to become one of the most enviable marriages in country music.
Vignettes of the pair enjoying a seaside sunset, a breezy ride in the jeep and slow dancing on the boardwalk are romantic and intimate, and offer a glimpse of how the parents of four keep the spark alive.
Although Jason wasn’t a writer on “Got What I Got,” thanks to the video, it’s easy to see why he chose to record it.
“When I got what I got, I don’t miss what I had / The old me before you belongs to the past / In the back of your mind, you might think there’s somethin’ more I want / But when I got what I got, girl, I don’t,” he sings.
Fans who follow Jason and Brittany on social media know that, like any family, day-to-day life isn’t exactly a fairytale. Siblings bicker, the best laid plans falter and pandemics happen, but the Aldeans seem to have mastered the ability to not sweat the small stuff, to play the hand you’ve been dealt, to remain positive, and to put love first.
