Country singers Lorrie Morgan and Sammy Kershaw have both filed for orders of protection against each other following the breakdown of their marriage.

Morgan filed for an order on Monday (03NOV03) and Kershaw asked for his the following day, saying she put her chest against him, pushed him back and "tried to provoke" him.

A judge will decide the matter at a hearing within 15 days.

The singers, who wed in 2001, have recorded duets including HE DRINKS TEQUILA and MAYBE NOT TONIGHT. They also have a Nashville, Tennessee, chicken restaurant together.
