Before tying the knot with current wife Brittany Kerr earlier this year, Jason Aldean‘s heart belonged to Jessica Ussery. The pair met during high school at Macon, Georgia’s Windsor Academy back when Jason was known as “Jason Aldine Williams.” Here is Jessica Ussery and Jason Aldean attending the ACM Awards in April of 2013.The hometown sweethearts were married on August 4, 2001. Daughters Keeley, 12, and Kendyl, 8, followed after in 2003 and 2007.
