Terri Clark's DIVORCE

Terri Clark filed for divorce from Greg Kaczor on Friday (Feb. 16) in Nashville after 17 months of marriage. Kaczor had served as Clark's tour manager, but he will no longer work in that role. They had known each other for 10 years and were married on Sept. 17, 2005. It was her second marriage. "This is very sad," said Clark. "Greg is one of my dearest friends and a wonderful person, and we are sorry that we're here. This is an amicable spilt, and we appreciate everyone's concern and respect for our sorting this out. No big drama ... just a couple heavy hearts. Anyone who's ever been here, I am sure, understands."
