Jason Aldean and Brittany Aldean’s Relationship Timeline

Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany Kerr Aldean, support each other.

The country singer was first spotted with the former American Idol contestant in 2012 and they began dating the following year. When they were first photographed together, Jason was still married to his wife of 11 years, Jessica Ussery.

Jason and Brittany got married in 2015 and have since welcomed two children, a son named Memphis and a daughter named Navy. Their two kids joined a blended family which includes Jason’s elder daughters from his marriage to Ussery.

After Jason got a divorce from his ex-wife, he and Brittany began dating. Because of the genesis of their relationship, and Jason’s later controversial song “Try That In A Small Town,” the couple received some criticism. But, Jason and Brittany have continued to publicly support each other and share about their blended family.

As she wrote on Instagram in 2020, on their fifth wedding anniversary, “5 years ago today I made the best decision of my life by marrying you. The road has been a little tough at times but you and I never wavered. We stuck through it all and look at us now.”

Here is a complete timeline of Jason Aldean and Brittany Aldean’s relationship.

In September 2012, Jason and Brittany were spotted together at a bar in Los Angeles. At the time, Jason was married to his high school sweetheart, Ussery. As TMZ first reported, the pair were photographed kissing at The Den in West Hollywood.

A few days later, Jason issued an apology on X (formerly Twitter), writing, “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.”

Brittany also apologized for the photos, telling TMZ, “The actions I portrayed recently were not a representation of my true character, but a lapse in judgment on my part. I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this, including my friends & family.”

March 2014: Jason and Brittany begin officially dating

A year after his 2013 divorce from Ussery, PEOPLE confirmed that Jason and Brittany had become an official couple.

While the pair kept a low profile at first, Brittany was seen at one of Jason’s concerts that month.

Jason and Brittany both received criticism during the early phases of their relationship due to the images of the pair kissing while he was still married to Ussery. After a couple of months of dating, Jason addressed the backlash on his Instagram.

“So sick of people judging me and @brittanylkerr over things they know nothing about,” he wrote in the caption. “I have made mistakes but I am a better person because of it, and wouldn’t change a thing. I’m happier than I have ever been, so thank u to all the people who support us. We are happy and life goes on. It’s time to move on people.”

A few days later, Brittany posted a photo of her and her fiancé kissing on Instagram, which showed off her engagement ring.

“We’ve been on cloud nine the past few days!!” she wrote in the caption. “My heart has never been more full of happiness and love. Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this man. So many blessings and memories are in our future and SO thankful I get to share them with him.”

March 21, 2015: Jason and Brittany get married in Mexico

Shortly after completing his Burn It Down Tour, Jason and Brittany wed in Mexico on March 21, 2015.

A few weeks later, Jason opened up to PEOPLE about their first few days as a married couple. “I feel like our life is a honeymoon,” the singer said.

Jason also shared that he was hoping to have children with his new wife as soon as possible. “In the next couple of years, probably, we definitely want to have kids,” he said.

After tying the knot with Brittany, Jason said he still felt judged by some of his fans. Eventually, he wrote “They Don’t Know” to respond to the scrutiny.

“People are very opinionated about things they’re not really aware of,” the singer told PEOPLE at the time. “I’m not going to spend all my time defending myself. I am what I am. People that know me or know my situation, they actually know.”

Jason went on to explain that regardless of what some fans may think, he and Brittany are a great match — even if they have different musical tastes.

“I’ll play songs for her, but it’s hard because she’s not a fan of a lot of the stuff I’m a fan of,” he said. “She’s not big into rock music and that’s one of my biggest influences. She doesn’t get that whole side of it. She’s more hip-hop, R&B, pop stuff.”

May 2017: Jason and Brittany announce they are expecting a baby

In May 2017, Jason and Brittany announced on social media that they were expecting their first child together.

“SURPRISE!!! WE ARE PREGNANT!!! This was the hardest secret we’ve ever had to keep,” Brittany wrote on Instagram. “This journey for us has been full of many happy times & also many tears … We will never take one moment for granted & can’t wait to meet you, sweet baby!!!”

Jason also posted about his excitement. “Been hard to keep this secret but we couldn’t be happier to add to our family. This year just gets better and better. #bunintheoven,” he wrote.

In July 2018, Jason and Brittany announced on Instagram that they were expecting their second child, just seven months after the birth of their son. “Here we go again!” Brittany wrote in her post.

Shortly after the announcement, Jason spoke to PEOPLE about how the couple had used IVF to get pregnant quickly.

“It was definitely something we had planned,” the Grammy-nominated artist said. “After having our son, we knew we wanted to have two kids. I have my two older daughters already, so after Memphis was born we knew we wanted to have another one pretty quick — to go ahead and knock it out and have one that was a little closer in age to him.”

July 2020: Jason makes a music video with Brittany and their children

In July 2020, Jason made an ode to his wife and family in his music video for the song “Got What I Got.”

The music video features clips of Brittany, their two children and his two daughters from his first marriage. The video even gives fans a glimpse into the family’s personal life.

“The babies are in bed, so we are gonna enjoy a night together since we’ve been on the beach all day with the family, and we’re gonna have a stay-at-home date night on the porch, so cheers, babe,” Brittany says in the opening scene.

October 2020: Jason and Brittany reflect on the Las Vegas shooting

The 2017 Las Vegas shooting during Jason’s set at the Route 91 Harvest music festival, which killed 60 people and left over 400 injured, was devastating for the couple.

On the three-year anniversary of the tragedy, Jason and Brittany opened up on Instagram about the act of violence and honored the lives that were lost. “That night was probably the worst night of our lives and not a day goes by that we don’t think about the people who lost their lives and the families who have forever been affected by it,” Jason wrote, adding, “October 1st will always be a day for us that is extremely hard to relive.”

Brittany posted about her experience on the same day as well. “Little did we know our lives would change forever,” she wrote. “The sound, the chaos, the overwhelming sadness and heartache … it’s something that never leaves you.”

She added, “They call us the ‘Route 91 Family’ in my opinion because we are forever bonded. An experience that thankfully only certain people know.”

By 2021, Jason’s priorities had shifted — largely thanks to his wife, Brittany.

“It’s a hell of a lot different,” he told PEOPLE. “I’m a lot more settled in my 40s than I was in my 20s. I’m in a different place in life. I don’t feel so much like I’m trying to prove myself every single day and trying to chase this thing that seems so out of reach.”

The singer also opened up about how his life had changed during his second marriage, including his focus on eating healthier.

“It’s kind of what you do when you’re married,” he said. “The biggest thing with us is we’re super supportive of each other. She’s been really good at trying to carve her own path, starting little businesses and doing her own thing. I try to be as supportive as I can of what she’s got going on. And she does that with me. It’s a good little team.”

All in all, Jason expressed satisfaction with where he was in life. “I got four beautiful kids,” he continued. “I got a beautiful wife and had a great career. I’m a lot more settled now than I was by far in my 20s. I’m just a lot more at peace.”

March 7, 2022: Jason thanks Brittany at the ACM Awards

At the 2022 ACM Awards, Jason and fellow country star Carrie Underwood won single of the year for their duet “If I Didn’t Love You.”

During his speech, Jason gave his wife a special shout-out. “My family, my wife — we just celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary yesterday, I love you baby,” he said.

As awards season came to a close, Brittany reciprocated the love and showed her husband some support on Instagram.

“What a year for my sugar @jasonaldean,” she wrote in the caption. “So deserving, my love.”

In late March 2022, the couple celebrated another milestone: their seventh wedding anniversary. Both Jason and Brittany shared touching tributes on Instagram, with Brittany posting two wedding photos and Jason sharing a series of sweet moments from throughout their relationship.

“Can’t believe we were in this moment 7 years ago,” Brittany captioned her post. “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my best friend. Thank you for being the best daddy and husband a girl could ask for. I love you so so much.”

Jason wrote, “Happy Anniversary to the most beautiful person I know. 7 years and 2 babies later and I’m still as excited to wake up with u everyday as much as ever.”

July 2023: Brittany defends Jason and his song “Try That In A Small Town”

Brittany seemingly defended Jason after his song “Try That In A Small Town” received criticism of being pro-gun and racist, including from fellow country artists like Sheryl Crow.

The video features news clips of protests projected onto a Tennessee courthouse set to lyrics including, “Stomp on the flag and light it up / Yeah, ya think you’re tough / Well, try that in a small town / See how far ya make it down the road.” Critics called out its glamorization of gun ownership in the light of Jason’s own experience with a mass shooting and its potential encouragement of violence.

“Never apologize for speaking the truth❣️🇺🇸,” Brittany wrote on Instagram with a selfie of her and Jason four days after the video was released.

May 2024: Jason celebrates Mother’s Day with Brittany

On Mother’s Day in 2024, Jason shared a video of himself, Brittany and their children to the tune of his song “Let Your Boys Be Country.”
