They’re hitched, y’all! Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr tied the knot over the weekend, exchanging vows Saturday at a romantic destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
Aldean, 38, and his “American Idol” sweetheart, 27, said “I do” in front of their family and friends during a beach ceremony, according to Us Weekly. Both of the country crooner’s daughters -- Keeley, 12, and Kendyl, 7 -- from the “She’s Country” singer’s previous marriage, were in attendance.
Aldean and his first wife of 12 years, Jessica Ussery, filed for divorced in April 2013, citing irreconcilable differences. Their separation came after the country singer was spotted by TMZ being affectionate with Kerr at a bar in Southern California in September 2012. Although Aldean issued a public apology for “embarrassing” his family, it’s reportedly what ultimately ended his marriage to Ussery. In March 2014, the newly single crooner officially began dating Kerr -- and, five months later, the two were engaged.
“My heart has never been more full of happiness and love ... Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this man,” Kerr wrote, sharing the first picture of her sparkling engagement ring via Instagram. “So many blessings and memories are in our future and SO thankful I get to share them with him. Thanks for all the support and kind words y’all have given us.”

Us Weekly reported details and shared the first official photograph of the couple’s wedding, dishing that the bride walked barefoot down the sandy aisle to John Legend’s emotional single “All of Me.” Kerr wore a stunning long-sleeve lace Pnina Tornai gown and styled her blond tresses in loose, beachy waves. “She looked beautiful,” Aldean, who teared up at the sight of his bride, gushed while talking to the magazine. “I was so excited to see her.”
Aldean wasn’t the only one beaming on the day of their wedding. Kerr was also bursting with joy on her big day, saying: “Today has been the best day of my life. I feel like the luckiest woman to have been able to marry my best friend.”
