Zac Brown's Marriage Ends
In the CBS This Morning segment of 2019, the country singer opened up with a heavy heart about his failed marriage that ended with a divorce in 2018. When asked by the interviewer about when the singer became aware of the approaching end in their relationship, Zac, age 43, replied-
'You know, lots of things that you don't ever foresee. But you know, when you live in something long enough that it's not working anymore, and that the differences that are there are greater, and that it's healthier to not live in conflict than it is to try to stay.'
Although he said 'she was absolutely the one,' once a happy couple, Zac and Shelly Brown, had no other way than to abandon the vows they shared at their wedding in 2006.
Further, in the interview, the singer admitted that if it were not for their five beautiful children, Joni, Georgia, Lucy, Justice, and Alexander, the pair would have split a long time ago. This clearly implies Zac and Shelly's marriage remained a struggle several years before their legal separation.

But since the divorce, he seems to be reshaping his life and taking back the parts of himself he had missed while in that relationship.
'I decided two years ago that there were just parts of myself that I didn't wanna be anymore...I don't want to be around things that aren't real anymore. I'm trying to engineer my life for things that have soul, and things that I create...'
The separation gave him a new perspective on life, and now he describes his children as his foremost priority. Though the separation ended their journey together as husband and wife, they will always remain bonded through their kids.
Sharing his experience of co-parenting with his former wife, the singer said to People,
'I couldn't have a more amazing mom for them. They're our first priority and they've got steadiness and love from both sides. Our kids are a product of all the love and time we give them.'
As he has just gotten out of a difficult separation and has five kids to look after, he seems to keep the search for a new relationship at bay for now. Currently residing at his Georgia house, he is not yet known to have a girlfriend since the split. However, he did not halt his music production, despite his personal life crisis.
