Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr Walk the CMT Awards Show Red Carpet

It Is Their First Public Appearance Together Following Tabloid Reports

Jason Aldean brought his new girlfriend Brittany Kerr to walk the red carpet with him before the 2014 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night (June 4). It is their first public appearance together, and he’s apparently moving on with his life, as they say.

Kerr is an aspiring model and singer who was a contestant on American Idol in 2012. She is a former NBA dancer for the Charlotte Bobcats, and when she auditioned for Idol, she sang the hell out of Joss Stone’s “Spoiled.” (Kerr moved on to the competition’s Hollywood round despite the fact that Jennifer Lopez voted no.)

Once Idol was over, Kerr and Aldean met and later found themselves the subject of tabloid gossip when she was seen kissing Aldean while he was still married to Jessica Ussery, his wife of 12 years.

On the red carpet, Aldean wore his signature jeans, boots and cowboy hat, while Kerr wore a seriously gorgeous white body-con halter dress.

Aldean filed for divorce in April 2013.
