Sammy Kershaw ran for lieutenant governor of Louisiana. He lost the election last week, and now he is losing his wife.
Lorrie Morgan filed divorce papers to end her six-year marriage to the singer on Tuesday in Sumner County court. She cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. This is Morgan's fifth marriage and Kershaw's fourth.
The couple had separated in 2003, then reconciled the next year. They renewed their wedding vows earlier this year.
Morgan is the daughter of Country Music Hall of Fame singer George Morgan; Sammy Kershaw is the third cousin of Cajun fiddler/singer Doug Kershaw.
