Welp, one of country music’s favorite couples is no more.
Today, Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly announced that they have filed for divorce after 2 years of marriage.
They released the following statement to the AP Press:
“With heavy but hopeful hearts we wanted to put our own thoughts into the air about what’s happening. These kinds of announcements are always met with scrutiny and speculation and we want to stop that before it even starts. We believe that we were put into each other’s lives for a divine reason and have both changed each other infinitely for the better. The love we have for each other goes far beyond the relationship we’ve shared as husband and wife. It’s a soul connection that can never be erased.”
“We’ve made this painful decision together, a healthy decision that comes after a very long period of trying the best we can. It simply just didn’t work. Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives. We hold no blame, anger, or contempt for each other and we ask for privacy and positive wishes for us both as we learn how to navigate through this.”
Fans had already begun to speculate that they were on the rocks months ago when Kacey and Ruston began to slowly fade away from each other’s social media. They got married back in 2017.
Ruston’s upcoming album Shape and Destroy is set to drop on August 28th.
