Kelsea Ballerini Settled Her Divorce From Morgan Evans in October 2022

Ballerini filed for divorce in from her husband of nearly five years, Morgan Evans in Davidson County, Tennessee, on August 26, 2022, according to court records obtained by Heavy.

Court records obtained by People reveal that the couple reached a settlement in their divorce on October 24 in Davidson County, Tennessee.

Neither star is currently living in their Nashville home, which has been listed for sale. According to People, all household furniture and personal property has been divided. Ballerini has since posted photos and videos of her moving into a new home with her dog.

Ballerini and Evans live in Nashville and were married there in December 2017, the divorce records show. Ballerini’s filing cited “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for divorce.

“They’ve been working on their marriage for a very long time,” a source told People at the time. “Prior to this they had separated privately once before and have been in therapy for several years. They gave it their best go but unfortunately arrived at the decision to formally separate.”

On November 6, 2022, Ballerini uploaded a TikTok video with the caption, “a lil gratitude moment. life is cool.”

“I was thinking about in the last, like, week and a half, I’ve gotten to be on stage with Carly Pearce, with Wynona Judd, and Little Big Town, and Brandy Carlisle, and Martina McBride and Ashley McBride,” she started. “And then I’ve also gotten to be on stage with Carrie Underwood. And I’ve also gotten to be on stage with Keith Urban.”

She added, “And I wish I could go tell 13-year-old me that that would be a week that exists in my life and that now this week I get to go put on a pretty dress and sit in a really good seat at the CMA Awards and perform and be nominated. Very grateful. Very, very grateful.”
