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.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
