after 12 years of marriage.
Zac Brown and his wife Shelly are parting ways after 12 years of marriage.
“We feel blessed to be on such an incredible journey in life and sometimes the journey begins to lead in different directions,” the statement reads. “It is with deep love and respect that we announce we are separating as a couple.”
The statement continued: “We have led a whirlwind life together growing into a beautiful family with five amazing children and while life will be rearranging a bit, our love and commitment to our family will always be there. This was a difficult decision, but we’ve done plenty of tough things together and this is our next venture – love, mutual respect, and care for each other are what we are moving forward with.”
The couple then asked that rather than commenting or spending energy worrying about them you take a moment to send love to your own family.
They met at a New Year’s Eve concert that the band was playing, Zac kissed Shelly at midnight. He says once their lips touched it was “game over.”
The pair wed in 2006 and share five children together: daughters Justice, 11; Lucy, 10; Georgia, 8; Joni, 7; and son Alexander, 4.
