Country singer Terri Clark and husband Greg Kaczor filed for divorce Friday in what Clark described as an “amicable” parting that is uncontested.
“This is very sad,” the 38-year-old singer said in a statement.
“Greg is one of my dearest friends and a wonderful person, and we are sorry that we’re here.
“This is an amicable split, and we appreciate everyone’s concern and respect for our sorting this out,” she said. “No big drama ... just a couple heavy hearts. Anyone who’s ever been here, I am sure, understands.”
Clark was born in Montreal and raised in Medicine Hat, Alberta. In 2004 she became the first Canadian woman to join the Grand Ole Opry.
The pair had been married since 2005 and lived in Nashville.
Kaczor worked as tour manager in Clark’s organization. According to the statement, he has opted not to continue in that position.
Clark’s record label, BNA Records, issued a statement on her behalf asking for privacy during “this personal and challenging time.”
