In 2007, Jason Aldean‘s wife Jessica Ussery, now ex-wife, and eldest daughter Keeley made an appearance in the country star’s “Laughed Until We Cried” music video. The dreamy music video directed by Kristin Barlowe was filmed in scenic Wildwood, New Jersey, and features prominent local attractions.
You can spot the mother and daughter enjoying a carousal ride at the 2:20 mark below.
The song was released in August 2007 as the second single from the Georgia native’s album Relentless, and his fifth chart single overall on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Also in 2007, Jason and Jessica welcomed second daughter Kendyl into the world.
As we all know, the couple divorced in 2013 after a very public cheating scandal and both parties went on to remarry. Jason wed Brittany Kerr in Mexico on March 21st, 2015 and Jessica married Jake Marlin, an electric lineman and father of two, in Florida on October 17th, 2015.
Sure they both have moved on in big ways, but it is interesting to note the parallels between the “Laughed Until We Cried” and West Coast-based “A Little More Summertime” music videos. The visual stories, though directed by different individuals, both feature Aldean’s spouse, a seaside location with carnival rides, and similar creative elements. It’s almost like a re-write of the “Laughed Until We Cried” music video.
