Dixie Chick Finalizes Her Divorce from Austin Singer-Songwriter

News outlets reported today that popular Austin singer-songwriter Charlie Robison and Dixie Chick Emily Robison finalized their divorce on Wednesday. In an e-mail to the Associated Press, a Charlie Robison representative confirmed that Charlie and Emily will remain very close friends and keep their family their priority. Charlie and Emily had been married nine years and have three children together: Charles Augustus, 5, and 3-year-old twins Julianna Tex and Henry Benjamin.

Charlie Robison's divorce attorney filed his petition for divorce in Bexar County in January on the grounds of insupportability due to discord or conflict of personalities. The divorce was presumably filed in Bexar County because the couple own a ranch near Medina, Texas, just northwest of San Antonio, Texas. It is believed the parties were able to reach an agreement regarding both conservatorship and division of property and both parties attended the prove-up hearing together with their family law attorneys on Wednesday.

A sampling of Charlie's music can be found on his official MySpace page. Good times can be had at either of Charlie's upcoming shows at Gruene Hall on August 30th or 31st.
