Did Jason Aldean bring his mistress to the CMT Music Awards?

Sure looks like it

It's not as though we didn't suspect Jason Aldean has been dating his former mistress, Brittany Kerr. We just aren't sure if we're ready to see the two strolling the red carpet together. Has the dust even settled on his divorce?

Less than two years ago, Jason Aldean found himself embroiled in a scandal when cameras caught him canoodling with a woman in a California bar.

The big problem, of course, was that woman wasn't Jessica Ussery, his high school sweetheart turned wife (not to mention the mother of his two kids). Rather, it was former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr.

The 37-year-old "Night Train" singer went through the typical damage control motions of making a public apology, admitting he "had too much to drink" and "screwed up." And — from the outside, at least — it appeared he was making an effort to repair his relationship with Ussery.

However, Aldean separated from his wife only seven months later and filed for divorce shortly after.

In the time since, rumors have swirled that Aldean began officially dating Kerr in April of last year, around the time he publicly split from Ussery. In March of this year, Us Weekly confirmed those rumors to be true.

But, wait, did he seriously just bring her to the CMT Music Awards?

Call us old-fashioned, but isn't it still a little soon to be parading your mistress down the red carpet? Or, at the very least, isn't it pretty insensitive? Also, if that was in fact Kerr (who, we'll admit, looked gorgeous), she seemed awfully comfortable hamming it up out there.

What do you think? Are we overreacting, or was it a tad tasteless for Aldean to show up at the major awards show with Kerr on his arm?
