Jason Aldean And Brittany Kerr are Engaged

Country crooner Jason Aldean and American Idol alum Brittany Kerr are engaged.  Aldean proposed to Kerr this past weekend when they were visiting the West Coast.

Aldean and Kerr were first spotted kissing at a Los Angeles bar in September 2012. At the time, Aldean was still married to Jessica Ussery. Eventually the country singer owned up to his mistake, and said he would work through his family problems priviately.

In April of this year Jason Aldean officially filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years. The divorce was finalized in Spring 2014. The couple shares custody of two daughters.

Kerr, an NBA cheerleader, stepped out with her new fiancé in March, and by June they were walking the red carpet of the CMT Music Awards together. Last month Aldean defended his relationship with Brittany Kerr. In an Instagram post Aldean wrote:

“So sick of people judging me and @brittanylkerr over things they know nothing about. I have made mistakes but i am a better person because of it, and wouldn’t change a thing. I’m happier than i have ever been, so thank u to all the people who support us. We are happy and life goes on. It’s time to move on people. #aldeanarmy #oldnews #timetomoveon”

It makes us wonder if his past and current relationship have anything to do with his new album which is titled “Old Boots, New Dirt.” The country superstars albums drops on October 7.

Is Brittany Kerr the “new dirt” to Jason Aldean’s old boots? I’m sure there is more to the album than the title suggests, but it does seem fitting in many ways given their current and past circumstances.
