13 Longest-Lasting Country Music Marriages
In the entertainment industry fans have become accustomed to hearing of splits and divorces so often that the long-standing couples often get overlooked. In the music industry it is often difficult to keep the love alive with busy and long touring schedules, and even more time in the recording studio, but some couples have made it work. Whether they are both in the entertainment industry or not, and even though it wasn’t necessarily always easy, these 13 couples have made their marriages last for quite a long time! Here are 13 of the longest-lasting marriages in country music:
13. Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley
From the very first time he saw Father of the Bride, Brad Paisley was enamored with actress Kimberly Williams, and unlike pretty much everyone else, he got to marry his famous crush! The two began dating in 2001 and on March 15, 2003 they tied the knot in a surprise wedding after they told their guests they were only attending a rehearsal. Together the famous duo has navigated the ups and downs of fame in both the music and television industry and has welcomed two sons, William Huckleberry “Huck” and Jasper Warren.
12. Vince Gill and Amy Grant
Vince Gill and Amy Grant had a complicated road to happiness, but once they found it together they have not let go. Gill met Christian music singer Amy Grant in 1993 through his televised Christmas special, and while a friendship formed, both were married to other people at the time. After each of their marriages broke down in the mid-90s, it didn’t take long for the two to confirm they were dating and in March 2000 they tied the knot. Although it took some time for the pair to become romantic, Gill has admitted that he was drawn to Grant as soon as he met her. “The first thing that ever drew me to Amy was that smile. I knew how kind she was and all of those things, but when she first smiled at me, that’s when my world flipped on its axis,” he shared.
