This is a country song waiting to happen.

Photos of crooner Jason Aldean getting close with someone who was not his wife, Jessica Ussery, hit the Internet today. And instead of pleading the fifth, Aldean came clean about the cheating scandal and apologized.

"Hey Guys—I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip web sites," Aldean wrote on his Facebook page.

"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. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support."

TMZ reports the woman the country star was caught smooching is former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. Aldean, who performed this weekend in Southern California for a music festival, wed Ussery in 2001 and they have two children together.
