Aldean shared on Country Countdown USA that it’s all about Elvis Presley, “I’ve kinda been infatuated with Elvis since I was a kid, just always watching documentaries and stuff on him. It had a little bit to do with that and, honestly, I just wanted 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 . . . it won’t be like Michael or John or, you know, Jason. And that was kinda what we were going for.”
But, yes, he’ll have a family name too, “His middle name will be Aldine, because that’s my middle name. I want to carry that name on. It was my grandfather’s name. So it’s kind of a family name. So that’s what we’re going with.”
Memphis Aldine Williams is expected to make his debut in December.
