Jason Aldean and his wife Jessica Ussery presented a united front on Thursday as they addressed photographs of the singer cozying up to season 11 American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr that surfaced more than a month ago.
Appearing on the CBS This Morning, the “My Kinda Party” singer – who has addressed the scandal previously on his own – sat beside his wife of 11 years and said they are doing “fine” as a couple.
“I think we’re fine, you know? I think anytime you go through anything like that, it’s tough. We’ve been together for a long time and been through a lot of things together,” Aldean, 35, said of Ussery, his high school sweetheart.
“Those are things that most people get to deal with in private, we didn’t have the luxury of doing that.”
He continued: “Go ask any couple that’s been married for 30, 40, 50 years…”
“I would love to hear their story,” Ussery chimed in.
“I can guarantee it hadn’t always been roses,” he said.
Aldean and Ussery are parents to daughters, Keeley, 9, and Kendyl, 5.
“The truth is that I screwed up,” he wrote at the time. “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.”
