Country singer Jason Aldean made his red carpet debut with former mistress Brittany Kerr at the 2014 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night.

The Big Green Tractor hitmaker proudly showed off his new girlfriend, a former American Idol contestant, with the pair holding hands and posing for photos at the Nashville, Tennessee prizegiving.

The public appearance comes two years after they were embroiled in a 2012 kissing scandal, which led to the end of Aldean's marriage.

He hit headlines after he was photographed locking lips with Kerr at a bar in Los Angeles, and after attempting to repair his marriage to high school sweetheart Jessica Ussery, the singer eventually filed for divorce to end their 12-year union last year.

Aldean and Kerr officially began dating in March, according to Us Weekly.
