NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Country Music Recording Artist Darius Rucker took to social media Saturday afternoon to announce he and his wife of 20 years have decided to "uncouple."

Rucker stated that he and Beth Leonard remain close friends and parenting partners and will continue to cheer each other on throughout their lives.

The two have two children, Daniella Rose Rucker, 19, and Jack Rucker, 15.
