MEETING RUSTON KELLY

In 2016 Musgraves was still aching over her breakup from musician Misa Arriaga when she agreed to meet fellow singer-songwriter, Ruston Kelly, at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville for a songwriting brainstorming.

The songwriting date quickly became a romantic one and the country stars fell in love. At the end of 2016, Kelly surprised Musgraves with a romantic Christmas Day proposal, and she accepted.

PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT

Shortly after their announcement, the couple removed all posts and references to each other and their marriage from their Instagram accounts. Neither has revealed who kept their puppy, Pepper.

It has been revealed that the former couple agreed to sell the home they had shared and split the proceeds as stipulated by their prenuptial agreement, with Musgraves receiving 84.4% of the proceeds, and Kelly 17,6%.

A NEW LOVE

It seems as if 10 months after the divorce Musgraves is well on the way to mending her broken heart with the help of handsome Dr.Gerald Onuoha who practices at HCA Healthcare in Nashville.

Kasey Musgraves has been seen cuddling up with the dashing M.D. but has yet to issue a statement or confirm the budding romance. As for Ruston Kelly, he has apparently been focusing on his music, and there are no hints of romance in his life.
