Jason Aldean and his wife Jessica Ussery are still united after Jason’s photo scandal with American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. The couple sat beside each other during the CBS This Morning show, (see video here) where Jason said, “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." The two are high school sweethearts and have been married for 11 years. Jason adds, “Those are things that most people get to deal with in private, we didn’t have the luxury of doing that.” The singer also compared their relationship to other long lasting pairs. He said, “Go ask any couple that’s been married 30, 40, 50 years…I can guarantee it hadn’t always been roses.” Jessica chimed in, “I would love to hear their story.” The couple has two children together – Keeley, 9, and Kendyl, 5.
