Introducing Jason Aldean and his future wife, Brittany Kerr!

E! News confirms the duo is officially engaged after the country crooner popped the question during the West Coast leg of his current tour Burn It Down tour.

Aldean recently opened up about his controversial relationship to Billboard magazine, saying, "It has been two years of this s--t—get over it, already!"

Despite the drama surrounding his highly publicized affair, and subsequent split from his wife Jessica Ussery, Aldean admitted that it's been difficult handling all the talk about his personal life.

"When I finally go get enough of it and say something, every newspaper grabs it. And I'm not trying to get in the headlines—I'm just trying to get people to stop running their mouths."

Aldean and Kerr were first linked after they were caught kissing in a bar in September 2012.

Shortly after photos of them emerged, the then-married singer apologized for his behavior on Facebook, admitting that he had "screwed up" and "had too much to drink" that evening.

His apology continued, "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."

The next month, he spoke to E! News and shared that he was "workin' through" his marital issues.

At the time he said that he and Ussery were trying to move past their "unfortunate" situation, adding, "We're tryin' to move on, that's the biggest thing. And, hopefully, people will allow us the privacy to do that—and that's kinda it."

But less than a year later, the high school sweethearts—who have two children together—called it quits.

Aldean and Kerr made their official red carpet debut at the 2014 CMT Awards in Nashville earlier this year.
