What Jason Aldean’s got in “Got What I Got” video and what it costs… And more!

Do you want to get what Jason’s got in his “Got What I Got” video? Well, be prepared to lighten your wallet! I’ll give you a grand total at the bottom of this post, but for now… read on!

Jason Aldean and wife Brittany show off their love and their kids in this video that already has well over 750,000 views in just 2 days. The video was shot in Destin, Florida and the backdrop for some of the video is theΒ Henderson Park Bed & Breakfast. Rooms here will set you back anywhere from a couple hundred to close to a grand, but can you put a price on a room right on the beach? If you’re as rich as Jason Aldean, the answer is no… no, you can’t. But let’s say it’s $500/night just for sake of our research. Speaking of research, I have done quite a bit on other music videos, a list of which you can check out here.

By the way, “Nashville Noise” has more good info from the video so be sure to check that out here.

Early on, the video has a strategically placed shot of Wolf Moon Bourbon, undoubtedly a case of integrated marketing as the bourbon is owned by Aldean and country group Florida Georgia Line. Here’s more on the brand, and a bottle of this will run you about $25. Our running total is now at $525.

The video was directed by my all-time favorite country music video director, Shaun Silva. He has a lot of videos that I love including Kenny Chesney’s “Anything But Mine,” “Come Over,” “Who You’d Be Today,” and Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most.”

Screen Shot 2020-07-03 at 9.04.23 AMAldean fans already know this I’m sure, but his nTr hat means “Night Train Ranch,” a nod to his home in Columbia, Tennessee. Among other things, this home has a 2-lane bowling alley where if you’re lucky, you can be a better bowler than me by scoring anything over 130… after purchasing the home for $7 million, of course. Or if you just want the hat, we’ll ballpark that at $20. So now our total is up to $7,000,545.00… to be just like Jason Aldean πŸ™‚

Enter the red Ford Bronco. I spent way too much time trying to narrow down the exact year of this modified classic, and at the end of my research all I can say is that it’s either a ’75 or ’76 model. Any car enthusiasts out there can feel free to chime in with more knowledge about it, but for now I’m sticking with mid-70s based on the headlights, grill, hood, and overall body style. I’ll value this ride conservatively at $40,000.

Are you ready for the grand total?

For you to “got” what Jason’s “got” in this video, you’ll need to spend $7,040,545.00. And that’s not including tax! He also has 4 kids (as seen throughout the video) so let’s just round up to half a billion, mmmmk? Kids are expensive, so I’ve heard, with all the iPads and scrunchies.

If there’s anything else in the video you’re curious about comment below and I’ll try to dig up the answers… Thanks for stopping by!

The beach nature of Florida’s forgotten coast

I was on the Gulf Coast of north Florida last week and was mesmerized by the beauty around me. Check out a few (ok, it’s more than a few πŸ™‚ ) photos highlighting the detail of the “forgotten coast” of Florida, then come back tomorrow for more photos including some beautiful shells.

zoom zoom and a vroom vroom

Attending church since March has meant something totally different than it did…. well, anytime in history before March. A lot of congregations are utilizing the Zoom live meeting program, which is what my Sunday morning Bible study uses.

A typical Sunday for me is Bible study starting at 9am– oh wait, first I wake up at 855am– Bible study ends and I watch the church service live on YouTube.

I had only heard of this next type of church service on the news until my brother’s church held a successful service, drive-in movie theater style.


Vroom vroom!

If you’re a church-goer, how has your church adapted to the situation? Chime in below and thanks for stopping by!

Turtle power!

I was just minutes away from arriving at the ultimate 2020 spring break destination when an almost unthinkable thing almost happened… almost! Driving on a two-lane road I could see in the distance something in the middle of my lane. I’m sure you’ve seen this before: a turtle slowly crossing the road. After passing him, I slowed to a stop and ran back to assist him in his adventurous kamikaze-like mission.

Only one problem… an oncoming car. I was so sure the driver would see me standing on the side of the road, and therefore be attentive to what’s happening in front of them. Also, it’s important to note the speed limit on this road was 45, so this car was not going slow by any means. I could see the driver’s face. She wasn’t looking at me (that’s good, I guess) but she also was not showing a look of attentiveness. My gaze lowered to the car’s tires. Wouldn’t you know the turtle was in the exact WRONG spot, perfectly lined up in the path of this this vehicle of death!


No exaggeration, at the very last second the driver became fully aware of what was about to happen, so she swerved sharply away from the turtle and onto the sandy shoulder of this coastal road. The thing is, now the car was coming for me! Was I willing to die so this turtle could live? I hadn’t thought that far ahead, to be honest.

Almost involuntarily I shifted into a 3-point stance like I was playing defense against Michael Jordan. I don’t know why my body did this, I guess it was just a response to the oncoming threat. In a split second I thought that whichever way the car went to avoid me (to my left or to my right) I would throw my body in the other direction. Think of a soccer goalie during a penalty kick, heaving their body towards the ball, except the exact opposite.

Now I saw panic on the driver’s face as she hurdled towards me. I guess I can be most thankful for the sandy shoulders on either side of the road because the car slowed down quite a bit as the driver and her passenger regained control and slowly drove by me on my left side. After they moved back onto the road to continue their drive, I ran out to grab the turtle, who certainly had a story to tell his other turtle friends that day.

As I set him in the nearby brush, folks in a convertible passed by and affirmed my good deed. I’m always happy to stop and help turtles in dangerous situations, and this one could have been traumatic in about 27 different ways! I’m so glad it wasn’t.

Epic Spring Break in Florida

There was no alcohol, no drugs, no late night parties– actually, I take that back, there were a few late nights but for this spring break, it was all about family! I took my self-quarantining to the gulf shores of Florida where my nieces and nephew were spending their spring break.

This timely family reunion was so fun. Let’s see if I can remember all the things we did: spike ball, boat trips, tubing, wakeboarding, collecting shells, found a sea horse (more on that soon), naps, dog walks, morning beach jogs, volleyball, knockout, one on one basketball with my brother, races, fixing lights, food, more food, golf cart rides, tennis, movies, black jack, war (card game, see below), bonfires, s’mores, One Night werewolf game, sushi (thanks brother in law!), work (thanks Zac, Kelly, Anderson Design Group, Steve, and Electronic Express!), watching an eagle fly, dolphins, stingrays, fish, seagulls, paddleboarding… phew, I think that was it.

Oh, and my sister’s family got a puppy. So it was kind of a boring week πŸ˜‰

I’m awake, but I think deep down I’m still napping.
