Jason Aldean and his wife Jessica Ussery have separated, according to US Weekly.  The tabloid cites an unnamed source that says, "There were obvious problems before the bar kiss, but he finally left earlier this year."

Last Fall, photos caught Aldean with another woman, American Idol alum and Charlotte Bobcats cheerleader Brittany Kerr.  Aldean has publicly said that his family is "OK" but his wife was not present at the ACM awards earlier in April.

One of Aldean's representatives told US Weekly:

"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time.  It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."

Country couples are not new to these types of rumors from tabloids.  Recently, Life & Style Weekly claimed that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert hit a rough patch in their marriage.  Shelton and Lambert disagree.  The couple mocked the story on Twitter.
