Jason Aldean to Open Up About Divorce for the First Time
Jason Aldean's split from wife Jessica Ussery was one of the more scandalous country music headlines of last year. The singer issued a statement, an apology and an admission after he was caught kissing a former 'American Idol' wannabe at a bar, chalking the indiscretion up to too much alcohol. He and Ussery eventually filed for divorce and Aldean has been relatively tight-lipped…until now.
Aldean will discuss the divorce, and the headlines that got he and his wife to that point, during a televised chat with ABC anchor Robin Roberts.
'In the Spotlight With Robin Roberts: Countdown to the CMA Awards' airs on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 10PM ET and Aldean will get revelatory. "Aldean opens up exclusively to Roberts about fame, family, and tabloid headlines he says helped end his marriage," ABC reps said.
After photos of the singer getting more than flirtatious with Brittany Kerr were splashed all over the media, Aldean, who has two daughters with Ussery, said, "The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar."
If you want to know the scoop, make note to tune in on Nov. 5 when Aldean speaks about the situation for the first time in a long time.
The special airs the night before the CMAs, which are scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 8PM on ABC.
