Country star Jason Aldean is set to open up about his recent divorce in a TV special that will air on TV in America on the same night as the CMA Awards next month.

The “Big Green Tractor” singer filed to end his 12-year marriage to Jessica Ussery in April, after the couple fought to put a cheating scandal behind them.

Aldean struggled to save his marriage after he was photographed kissing “American Idol” contestant Brittany Kerr at a Los Angeles club last year.

And now he’s sitting down with newswoman Robin Roberts to discuss the love split as part of her Countdown to the CMA Awards special on Nov. 5.

Luke Bryan, Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton will also appear on the show.
