Marriage can be hard, but it’s even harder when fame is involved. Some of the perks of being a musician can also be detriments to a relationship as we’ve seen many fall apart. The country music industry is home to some of the cutest love stories, as many of them date back to their teenage years and even childhood! We’ve compiled a list of country couples who married their high school or college sweethearts and while some are no longer together, there are plenty who are! Check it out:
10. Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks met his former wife, Sandy Mahl while they were both attending Oklahoma State University. She was a songwriter who helped Brooks in the early years of his career. The former college sweethearts tied the knot on May 24, 1986 and now share three children together, Taylor, August and Allie. Sadly, Brooks career success took a toll on their marriage as he was constantly on tour and away from home. The two split up in 1999 and finalized the divorce in 2001. He’s now married to fellow country singer, Trisha Yearwood.
