Kelsea shared a personal note with her fans via social media Monday morning confirming she and 37-year-old Evans will be going their separate ways. Her note came just hours before Morgan took to his own account to confirm the news as well.

"Friends, I've always tried my best to share my life with you in a real and vulnerable way, while also protecting layers of my personal life as they unfold,” Ballerini wrote. “This is now public record so I wanted you to hear from me directly that I am going through a divorce.”

“This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end. It's hard to find the words here... but I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons.”

Ballerini and Morgan wed in December 2017 after meeting in 2016 while co-hosting the CMC Awards in Australia.

“I am very sad to confirm that after almost 5 years of marriage, Kelsea and I are parting ways,” Morgan wrote. “I wish it were otherwise but sadly it is not.”

Kelsea concluded, “With very active schedules coming up, please be mindful that we are both fragile, actively healing, and showing up the best we can."
