Jason Aldean’s Fiancee’s Words Outshine Her Diamond

Brittany Kerr Opens Her Heart on Instagram

Some people will look at the latest photo of Jason Aldean and his fiancee Brittany Kerr and just see her engagement ring. And, honestly, it’s hard to miss. It has to be at least four carats. And it fits nicely on her manicured left hand, which is resting nicely on Aldean’s right shoulder.

But what stands out to me — even more so than the ring — is what Kerr posted beneath the photo. Complete with emojis and hashtags.

“We’ve been on cloud nine the past few days!!” she wrote. “My heart has never been more full of happiness and love … Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this man. So many blessings and memories are in our future and SO thankful I get to share them with him. Thanks for all the support and kind words y’all have given us #love #foreverandever #itdidnthappenatthezoo #happyhappyhappy”

In a time when people seem to be overly interested in how they met, how they fell in love, how big the diamond is and how he proposed (not at the zoo, according to her second hashtag and contrary to previous reports), I’m more interested in what is in Kerr’s heart.

And it looks like that’s what her followers are interested in, too. After putting the photo on Instagram, there are already more than 17,000 people who “like” it and plenty of people responding with words of support and well wishes.

Aldean has always been a pretty private guy and kept a low profile. I mean, he hasn’t even tweeted one word about the engagement. But with Kerr being a prolific social-media sharer, we could be in for a well-documented love story on Instagram.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
