Country singer, Kacey Musgraves discussed with ELLE on her divorce from Ruston Kelly on their June/July 2021 issue. 

Kacey said she felt like she was “Dying inside” months before the split.

“If you would’ve told me the night of the Grammys, ‘Hey, in two years, you’re going to be divorced and have a whole ‘nother album written,’ I would have been like, ‘F— off. No. No way,’ ” 

“I could have coasted for another couple of years,” she said, “just not paying attention to my feelings or not really dealing with some things.”

 “Why did I make these decisions? How did I get here? How can I prevent myself from getting there again? Why do I keep choosing the same kind of people?” she said.

“I felt, in many ways, on top of the world in my career,” the star added, “but in my personal life, I felt like I was dying inside. I was crumbling. I was sad. I felt lonely. I felt broken.”

“It was hard to not feel like I was in some ways a failure,””There’s nothing more shameful than staying somewhere where you don’t fit anymore.”

Musgraves and Kelly split after three years of marriage and finalized their divorce in September 2020. The ELLE publication hits newsstands on June 8.
