Aldean splits from wife

Thursday, April 25, 2013 – Jason Aldean and his wife apparently have split, according to US Weekly.

The separation between Aldean and Jessica Ussery, which happened in January comes seven months after the Georgian was photographed kissing a former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr.

"There were obvious problems before the bar kiss, but he finally left earlier this year," a source told US Weekly.

"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time," the rep said to US Weekly. "It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."

Aldean and Ussery were high school sweethearts. The two have two young daughters, Keeley and Kendyl.

The story quoted Aldean's comments on a CBS This Morning show, "It hasn't always been roses," Aldean admitted of his 11-year marriage to Ussery, with whom he has two young daughters, Keeley and Kendyl. "We've been together for a long time and through a lot of things together. Those are things that most people get to deal with in private, but we didn't have the luxury of doing that."

Aldean is currently on tour.

Rearview Town CD review - Rearview Town
If you liked Jason Aldean's three previous number one albums, you'll like "Rearview Town." He sticks to the winning formula that has brought him past success. The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt CD review - Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little time »»»
