Listen to Jason Aldean on iHeartRadio

(TMZ) - Country superstar Jason Aldean has filed for divorce, after cheating on his wife last fall, TMZ reports.

Aldean announced last week he had separated from his wife and high school sweetheart Jessica Ussery.

You'll recall, the singer was pictured kissing Season 11 "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr on the Sunset Strip in September.

Aldean and Ussery initially tried to patch things up - and they even walked a red carpet side-by-side back in November - but clearly, that didn't work out.

The separation was announced on April 26th. TMZ has learned Aldean filed divorce papers the same day in Tennessee.

Aldean and Ussery have been married since 2001 and have 2 kids together.
