Jason Aldean and girlfriend Brittany Kerr are officially a red carpet couple!

The 37-year-old country singer and his former mistress made their red carpet debut as a couple last night at the 2014 CMT Music Awards in Nashville. Their Wednesday night outing marks their first awards show since Aldean filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years, Jessica Ussery, in April 2013.
