Jason Aldean now dating Brittany Kerr

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Mar 18, 2014

Jason Aldean, whose marriage of nearly 12 years to Jessica Ussery ended in divorce last year, is now dating the woman whom he was seen kissing at a bar in West Hollywood in September 2012. According to Us Weekly, the publication has confirmed that Jason has been dating former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr since he filed for divorce in April 2013.

The father of two young daughters with Ussery, Jason apologized via Facebook immediately after the bar incident, saying that he "screwed up," and adding, "I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story."

On Friday (March 14), Kerr was photographed (via TMZ) watching Jason's concert from backstage at the Amphitheater at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Ala.

Jason is set to headline the April 4 NCAA March Madness Music Festival in Dallas and will perform during the ACM Awards live telecast from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 6.
