Jason Aldean is engaged to Brittany Kerr

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country star Jason Aldean and former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr are engaged.

The engagement was confirmed Thursday by a publicist for Aldean.

Aldean, 37, filed for divorce from his wife, Jessica, last year. Pictures had surfaced of the singer and Kerr appearing to kiss in a Los Angeles bar.

He is one of country's top-selling male acts, consistently selling out stadiums and arenas. His new album, "Old Boots, New Dirt," will be released Oct. 7.

Aldean and his ex-wife have two daughters, Keeley and Kendyl.

The engagement was first reported by TMZ.
