I wish it were otherwise but sadly it is not," the "Love Is Real" singer 37 shared on the Instagram story on Monday.

News47 reported earlier on that day that the country stars had divorced, as per papers filed by Ballerini 28 who filed the divorce papers on Friday, Tennessee.

"They've been working on their marriage for a very long time. Prior to this they had separated privately once before and have been in

therapy for several years," an insider informed News47. "They gave it their best go but unfortunately arrived at the decision to formally separate."

The difficult decision was an outcome of a process of love, development and work that is over. It's difficult to find the words here... 

With busy schedules Please remember that we're vulnerable, constantly healing, and doing as best we can.

but I am extremely thankful for the years I have spent married to Morgan and am hopeful for the coming seasons.
