The pop-country musician behind "Miss Me More" described the choice as "very tough" in a statement uploaded to Instagram on Monday.

The 28-year-old Ballerini said in her social media post that "[It's] a result of a journey of love, progress, and effort that eventually has come to an end."

Ballerini filed for divorce on Friday, according to court documents in Davidson County. As of early Monday, a complete court complaint was unavailable.

Ballerini expressed her gratitude for her nearly five years of marriage to Evans, an Australian country music star on a major label who is 37 years old.

According to the celebrity news website People, Ballerini and Evans first spoke in 2016 during an awards ceremony in Australia.

In late 2017, the pair exchanged vows on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Please remember that Ballerini and I are both vulnerable, actively mending, and going out as best we can with our upcoming busy schedules.
