A photo surfaced of the country singer wearing blackface makeup and a wig with dreadlocks for Halloween.

A representative for Jason Aldean said that the country star dressed as Lil Wayne for Halloween, after a photo surfaced of Aldean wearing blackface makeup and a wig with dreadlocks.

The picture, which first was posted by the website NashvilleGab, showed the singer dressed up in sunglasses, long dreadlocks and gold jewelry. Tyne Parrish, his publicist, said in an email on Tuesday that Aldean "dressed as rapper Lil Wayne for Halloween," but no other statement or explanation was provided.

Representatives for Lil Wayne were not immediately available for comment.

Aldean is one of country music's most popular performers, regularly selling out stadiums. The Recording Industry Association of America named him the top digital-selling male country artist in 2014.
