In a recent interview with People, Aldean, 41, explained that he was uncertain how to react when he discovered Memphis playing with one of his older sisters' dolls.

In October 2017, Aldean was performing on stage when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

“I’m like, ‘Hold up, time out!’” he said. “Seeing my son playing with a baby doll was kind of odd. Like, shouldn’t he have a truck or something?”

As it turns out, his wife Brittany was giving their son a chance to play with dolls as training for the real thing: The arrival of a baby sister.

Brittany is due to deliver daughter Navy Rome in February.

However, Aldean still believes that Memphis will be fine without any advanced training.

“I think he’s going to do great,” said Aldean, who has been signed to Broken Bow Records since 2005.

The "Big Green Tractor" artist also said that he has no plans to expand his family any further after Navy's arrival.

In October 2017, Aldean was performing on stage when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

He stopped performing when he saw his guitar player start running and was telling him to move.

His security guard had run on stage, urging him to do the same. So the singer bolted as well.

Aldean and everyone on stage with him managed to escape unharmed, but 58 people were killed, and more than 500 others were injured.

About an hour after, the gunman, Stephen Paddock, was found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The award-winning singer performed on "Saturday Night Live," not long after the devastating event. He opened the hit show with words of support for those hurting in the aftermath of the shooting.

He also continued with his tour and went back to Las Vegas, visiting all the injured concertgoers.

Aldean wished that the U.S. moves on from the nation’s worst mass shooting in modern history. He said the tragedy was something he'll never forget, but he's going to move on as well.
