Captain & Tennille file for divorce in Arizona

Daryl Dragon and Cathryn "Toni" Tennille, the couple better known as singing duo Captain & Tennille, are getting a divorce after more than 39 years of marriage.

Tennille filed for divorce on Jan. 16 in Prescott, Arizona, according to the couple's official website. She and Dragon do not have any children.

The pair married in November 1974 and released their debut album, Love Will Keep Us Together, featuring their hit title cover of the Neil Sedaka tune, the following year.

"Love Will Keep Us Together" stayed atop the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for nine weeks and won the Grammy for Record of the Year.

Their other major hits during their hey-day included "Muskrat Love," "The Way I Want to Touch You," "Shop Around" and "Do That to Me One More Time," another No. 1 hit.

Captain & Tennille continued to do TV specials, tour and record for years, but slowed down over the past decade and retired to Prescott.

Tennille, 73, revealed in 2010 that Dragon, 71, was suffering from a neurological disorder whose symptoms were akin to those of Parkinson's disease.
