Country singer Kacey Musgraves and husband Ruston Kelly have called it quits after two years of marriage, and the couple says it was a joint decision.

According to a statement issued by the now ex-couple, they have decided to end their marriage saying, "We've made this painful decision together."

"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," their statement began.

We Have Made This 'Painful' Decision Together...


It contiuned, "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."

Kacey and Ruston say they gave their marriage a 'very long' period of attempting to stay together, but in the end, they decided it would be best to part ways.

"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," they said to the AP.

"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," the concluded.

The couple met in early 2016 at the iconic Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN.

The ex-couple met while attending a songwriter's showcase at Bluebird Care, and connected immediately. “I started to see the world in a more fond, pretty light,” she said at the time.
