Jason Aldean and wife Jessica have been blessed with two daughters, Keeley, 6, and Kendyl, 2, but we won’t catch them trying for a boy.

“I would love to have more, but we’re not going to,” the Big Green Tractor singer tells me. “My wife had complications with the last one that we had, and they actually advised us not to. Plus, we were done. We only wanted two anyway, so we’re good. There’s people out there who can’t have one, and that would’ve been tough, but we’ve got two healthy ones, and my wife’s healthy now. We don’t want to chance it by trying to have another one, so we’re happy.”

Two daughters suit the country singer just fine.

“I like having two daughters ‘cause they’re close to their daddy, that’s why,” he says. “I’m a softie anyway, and after my first daughter was born, I was hooked. I really wanted another one – another girl. And there’s nothing cooler to me than being a parent, and girls are sweet and innocent – at least right now. I’ve always heard that girls end up being closer to their dad the older they get, and I’m hoping that’s the case.”

What music do the girls like?

“My oldest one loves everything. She loves my stuff, she loves Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. She’s been singing the Black Eyed Peas lately. She’s one of those kids that knows every song that comes on the radio. She’s back there singing it. She likes everything. And we listen to everything, too, in the car. We listen to country and pop, rock. She’ll sing George Strait, then turn around and sing Black Eyed Peas. She’s the one who really seems to have the music bug.”

When he gets some free time, Jason loves to head to the backyard of their new Tennessee home.

“We go and hang out at the pool, grill out there,” he says. “I’ve been teaching her how to swim. To me, that’s the cool thing. To be able to hang out and not really do anything, but get to spend some time with them.”

Jason doesn’t take his wife for granted.

They tell each other  “I love you” every time they leave for the day.

“You leave the house, and you’re going to be away from each other, and you never know what could happen,” he says. “I could get in a car wreck on my way here or something. That’s one of our things. We always tell each other that if we’re leaving.”

And, they carve out time for each other.

“I don’t know if she’d consider it romantic, but I do,” he begins. “We went to the Braves game. We had a little date night, and so we drove to Atlanta. We got a babysitter and we drove down to Atlanta, hung out and watched the Braves game, went to dinner, stuff like that. I don’t know if it was romantic, but that’s about as romantic as I get.”

Here's a photo of Jason and I from the CMA Music Festival. So fun!
