It’s a sad, sad summer for many of country music’s couples, as today comes the news that Jake Owen and his wife Lacey are ending their three year marriage. The two have one daughter together, Pearl.
Earlier this year, Owen admitted to trouble in their marriage and shared that divorce was a viable option.
Jake took to Twitter to share the unhappy news, calling it, “the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
“I wanted to let my fans know how much I’ve appreciated their support of not only my career, but my family as a whole. Sadly, Lacey and I have decided to end our marriage. We want to focus on our daughter Pearl and make sure that she has a beautiful life with love parents. We appreciate you respecting our privacy during this time.
