Love is real—and so is heartbreak. Just ask Morgan Evans.

Six months after he and Kelsea Ballerini broke up, the country star is shared how he's holding up.

"The only thing you can control is you is and how you feel and what you're doing," he said during a recent interview on the Bobby Bones Show. "Thankfully I have good people around to keep reminding me of that and keep me grounded in that way and I'll always be grateful for that."

Morgan's breakup song, "Over for You" helped him express his emotions—and those of his fans.

"After sharing it, seeing how that level of vulnerability and personal writing is actually the thing that most widely relates to people," he continued. "And the amount of messages and comments I get on social media now, they're so great."

"Having gone through a situation like that," the 37-year-old shared, "seeing that it helps other people going through situations like that, yeah, it's really a big deal."

His candor has helped him heal. After performing the song for the first time, he recalled, "it felt good to do that and just be honest and not try to cover things up."

Back in August, Kelsea and Morgan announced their divorce after five years of marriage.

"This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end," Kelsea shared at the time. "I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons."

For her, that now includes romancing Outer Banks star Chase Stokes. The pair were spotted together last month attending the College Football National Championship Game in L.A. Two weeks later, they packed on the PDA while walking through the airport.

"She's a sweet girl," Chase previously told TMZ. "We're having a good time and that's all I'll say."
