Aldean Home for Sale: Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany, are building their dream home, and they have put their current home on the market for the low, low price of just $7.8 million.

The imposing 8,900-square-foot mansion looks like a castle, with stone and exposed beams, with an actual turret in the front of the house. The house has 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, and includes a bowling alley, wine cellar and more. There’s a creek and a large barn with horse stalls, as well as an outdoor grilling area.
WWE star Kane is now going by a new name — Mayor. The six-foot-eight, 300-pound wrestler, whose real name is Glenn Jacobs, is the new mayor of Knox County, Tennessee after he defeated Democrat Linda Haney by only 23 votes. The 51-year-old told his supporters last night, “This professional wrestler got into a no-holds-barred, last-man-standing match, and when the bell rung, he was victorious. We were victorious.” In Knox County, Tennessee, the title of Mayor really refers to the county administrator. The city of Knoxville has its own mayor. Jacobs ran on a platform calling for tax cuts and improvements to education and infrastructure. He’s not the first wrestler to become a politician. Jesse “The Body” Ventura served as governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003.
