The truth is he cheated. And he's man enough to admit it.
The country crooner and his wife Jessica Ussery sat together for their first interview since Aldean was caught kissing former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr at a Hollywood bar in September. And by both accounts, the couple have made up and moved on.
"I think we're fine. I think anytime you go through anything like that—I mean it's tough," the singer told CBS This Morning. "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."
The 35-year-old Aldean immediately issued a public apology after pictures of him and the 24-year-old Kerr surfaced online, saying he "screwed up" and "acted inappropriately" after having too much to drink that night.
"I would say go ask any couple that's been married for 30, 40, 50 years," added the country superstar. "I guarantee—"
"I would love to hear their story," chimed in the Georgia native's missus.
"It hasn't always been roses," Aldean confessed.
The high school sweethearts tied the knot in 2001 and have two children together.
Nice to hear they've cleared everything up.
