Jason Aldean Was Quick to Date Brittany Kerr after Divorcing First Wife
Jason Aldean is presently married to singer and former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr.
The country music singer and songwriter, 44, and his wife also share two adorable kids: Memphis Aldean and Navy Rome Williams.
However, Aldean's present wife Kerr is not his first wife, as he was first married to Jessica Ann Ussery. He was married to his first wife from 2001 to 2013.
Like with Kerr, the singer was also blessed with two daughters from his marriage to Ussery. His two children, with his first wife, are Keeley Williams, born in 2003, and Kendyl Williams, born in 2007.
Jason Aldean's First Wife Was His High School Sweetheart
Aldean and Ussery reportedly started their relationship after first meeting each other at high school. There, they were best friends.
The two subsequently got married in 2001 and propelled a healthy relationship for several years. And with the birth of their two children, their family life seemed complete.
Not just that, Ussery also handled her then-husband in his finances and helped him in his other business matters.
Speaking with The Boot in 2011, the singer praised his ex-wife's contribution, saying, "She handles all the stuff I don't want to handle."
He explained, "I'm the guy who wants to play my music and meet my fans. She picks up the phone and makes the business call. When it comes to music, she'll give me her opinion if I ask her, but that's about it. It works out pretty good."
The Couple Divorced after 12 Years of Marriage
Even though Aldean and Ussery seemed like a power couple, they could not take their marriage forever. After 12 years of marriage, the couple sadly called it quits.
In April 2013, the singer filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart in Williamson County, Tennessee, citing irreconcilable differences.
"This is a really tough time for my entire family. Jessica and I have been together since we were teenagers. We've been through a lot of ups and downs over the years as we grew up together as a couple," Aldean told People after filing for the divorce.
In his statement to the publication, the country musician further stated that his first wife would always be important to him.
Jason Aldean Quickly Found in Brittany Kerr
Following his divorce, Aldean and his present wife Kerr started dating and subsequently made their first public appearance as a couple at the 2014 CMT Awards.

However, the couple had known each other for over two years before they began dating.
Aldean was even spotted making out with the fellow singer at a bar in 2012. At the time, he was reported to be drunk. He later also admitted to having "acted inappropriately at a bar" with Kerr.
Fast forward to 2014, and the couple announced their engagement, which was soon followed up by their wedding in March 2015.
Now, as stated earlier, Aldean and Kerr are parents to two kids and happily enjoy their family life together. The family is also frequently seen together on the couple's social media handle.
