Country singers wife files for divorce after his cancer diagnosis

The past year has been a roller-coaster ride of emotions for the country singer Eddie Montgomery, as the star has been through a messy divorce while being treated for cancer, according to Taste of Country.

Montgomery was served with his divorce papers by his wife of 20 years following his diagnosis with prostate cancer. The father of four turned to his close friends and family to help him win those two battles, as both processes were made more difficult due to the circumstances in which they came, the news source reported.

Montgomery noted in a statement, “Divorce for anybody is just terrible. The main thing is the kids. I just want to get that over with, and I want to thank all our friends for having our backs since day one, and still have our back. We love them.”

The singer has bounced back from his recent troubles by creating a new record with Troy Gentry and going back on tour, according to the Ohio State University Lantern.

According to Taste of Country, the album is for all of the people who were there for the singer during those tough times.
