Jason Aldean is speaking publicly for the first time about his recent divorce. The country music star was left by his wife of twelve years last year after pictures of him kissing American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr became public.
"I think the biggest thing is, you know, obviously there was things going on in my marriage at the time where it just wasn't really happy," he said in an interview with Robin Roberts. "And you go out and you kind of let your guard down a little bit and things happen, and, it's hard enough to deal with it in private."
The 36-year-old insisted, however, that nothing happened beyond what was seen in the pictures.
Aldean will perform at tonight's 47th annual CMAs, where he is also nominated for three trophies, including the night's highest honor, Entertainer of the Year.
The CMAs air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
