It’s a sad day for country music fans, as Kacey Musgraves and Cole Schafer have called it quits on their relationship, according to Page Six. The Grammy-winning singer and the poet have been dating for two years, but sources say they have been broken up for at least a month. The news has been spreading in Nashville, where the former couple lives.
Kacey Musgraves, 35, and Cole Schafer, 29, met in a crowded restaurant in June 2021, where they had an instant connection. “He did not know who I was, which I loved,” Musgraves told the New York Times later that year. They soon made their romance official on Instagram and shared their love with the world.
Kacey Musgraves was previously married to singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly, but they announced their divorce in July 2020, after nearly three years of marriage. She has been working on her new album, Star-Crossed, which is inspired by her personal journey of heartbreak and healing.
Schafer is a writer and founder of a creative agency called Honey Copy. He has published several books of poetry, including Some Days I Feel Everything and Some Days I Feel Nothing At All. He often posted sweet tributes to Musgraves on his Instagram, such as this one on her birthday: “Happiest birthday to the brightest flame in my world. My deeper well, I love you… I can’t wait to see what this year brings to you.
