– Sara Evans filed for divorce from her husband Craig Schelske Thursday in Tennessee.

The statement concluded, "Evans hopes that her fans and TV viewers who’ve supported her in recent weeks and throughout her music career will respect and understand her need for privacy in the face of these recent events."
