After six years of marriage, Jewel and her rodeo cowboy husband Ty Murray have decided to separate.

The 40-year-old singer revealed the news in a blog post today, July 2. “My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce,” she wrote.

“Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together,” she continued. “We truly believe we can find greater happiness apart than together, and this is why we are taking the enormous and heartbreaking step of divorce.”

Jewel and Murray began dating in 1998 but didn’t marry until the summer of 2008. Three years later, they had their son Kase, who will celebrate his third birthday this month.

“Our dedication to our son is unwavering,” reads a message from both Jewel and Murray on her blog, “and we are both committed to being the best partners in raising our son.”

We’re wishing Jewel, Ty and Kase all the best.
