“To say I’m completely devastated doesn’t even describe how I feel for myself and my family,” Branch said. “The rug has been completely pulled out from under me and now I have to figure out how to move on. With such young children, I’m asking for privacy and kindness.”
Branch and Carney married in 2019 after several years of dating. They accept theirs first child partner, Rhys James Carney, in August 2018, and had their second, Willie Jacquet Carney, in February. According to people, Branch tweeted a note on the evening of August 10 accusing Carney of cheating on her while she was at home with their 6-month-old child, but it has since been deleted.
Branch co-wrote and co-produced his upcoming fourth studio album, The Trouble with Fever, with Carney during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown. The project will arrive on September 16, and pre-orders continues. That month, he will embark on a North American tour with support from Katelyn Tarver and Bad Bad Hats on select dates.
