Jason Aldean’s Wife Spent Five Hours In The ER After Experiencing Chest Pains

Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany is keeping fans posted on her health issues, revealing that she recently spent five hours in the emergency room after experiencing chest pains.

“I had the worst chest pains this morning,” she shared on her Instagram Story on Thursday. “Anyone else have random pains and thought, ‘this is it, this is how I’m goin’ out?'”

Brittany wound up deciding to stay in bed that day, but then later shared that she and Jason went to the hospital when the pain didn’t stop. “After five hours, yep, five hours of being at the ER, I have pleurisy, which is also known as the lining around your lungs is inflamed,” she explained. “To help this, I take ibuprofen,” adding, “I hear wine is a cure, but also I think I’m gonna get divorced now because I just put this man through five hours of the ER.”

And it sure sounds like Jason wasn’t exactly happy with the ordeal, sharing, “Dude, five hours, that’s being generous. I mean for something that two Advil would have knocked out in 30 minutes.”

But Brittany doesn’t regret getting help noting, “Okay, in my defense, it was very painful and I thought maybe I was having a heart attack.”

Tim McGraw Was Apprehensive About Taylor Swift’s ‘Tim McGraw’ Song

Back in 2006 Taylor Swift debuted on the music scene with her first single, “Tim McGraw,” and now Tim McGraw is opening up about how felt about being the subject of her tune.

Tim tells Apple Music at that first he was “a little apprehensive” about the song, but notes, “Then I thought: ‘Have I gotten to that age now to where they’re singing songs about me? Does that mean I’ve jumped the shark a bit? Is everything still cool?’”

But soon Tim felt a little better, sharing, “Then I realized that somebody had told me that [Swift] was in her 7th grade math class when she wrote the song, so it made me feel a little bit better about that because she was so young writing it,” adding, “So I didn’t feel like I was that terribly old.”

I’ve always loved her,” she writes. “99 and doing fine—an Inspiration to all us young girl! Thank you, Betty and happy birthday. We all adore you. “
