Zac Brown and his wife Shelly have split up after 12 years of marriage.
The 40-year-old Zac Brown Band singer and his 34-year-old wife share five children: son Alexander, 4, and daughters Joni, 7, Georgia, 8, Lucy, 10, and Justice, 11. In a joint statement to People they admit it was a difficult decision.
"We feel blessed to be on such an incredible journey in life and sometimes the journey begins to lead in different directions," they say jointly.
The couple asked that rather than commenting or spending energy worrying about them you take a moment to send love to your own family.
