One of the major celebrity splits during the pandemic was country star Kacey Musgraves and her husband of two years, fellow musician Ruston Kelly. They released a joint statement reaffirming their bond as friends while announcing their divorce.

"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. 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."

Moving Forward As Friends

As part of the statement, they assured the public that they were not placing public blame on each other and that their friendship remained.

"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."

Wishing Him A Happy Birthday

While they "we're still friends" public route is often just a public line, Musgraves and Kelly seem to be living out that mantra in real life as well. Over the weekend, Musgraves shared a photo of Kelly on her Instagram for his birthday, writing:

"Hope you know how lucky the world is to have you in it, @rustonkelly. Happy Birthday! I'm in your corner."

Musgraves also tweeted about Kelly's single "Pressure" when it dropped last month, tweeting out "This song, y’all." Kelly replied "u convinced me to 🖤."

Inspiring Her Love Songs

Truly, Musgraves and Kelly might be model exes. Their love of music is the foundation for their relationship, going all the way back to when they met at Nashville's iconic Bluebird Café. She told HITS Daily Double:

"Ruston played his first song, and I was just stunned by everything in it. The words, the melody, what he was saying. I was just sitting at this table, crying. When it was over, I went up and introduced myself. I said, ‘Hey, I don’t really ever do this, but here’s my number; I really wanna write with you.' … A few months went by, and we were supposed to write on May 11. I almost canceled. I just didn’t wanna go through trying to write with someone I didn’t really know."

She didn't cancel the date and said that they were pretty inseparable from then on. While their romance may have ended, that bond doesn't just go away.
