7 Things You Didn’t Know About Toby Keith And Tricia Covel’s Relationship
5. Humble Beginnings
When Keith and Covel first met, he was not the famous country singer he is today. In fact, they were just two ordinary people who met at a bar and fell in love. Keith started his career working in the oil fields, but when the work ended, he decided to focus on building a career in music. His stardom didn’t come easy. Their family went through a lot of financial hardship along the way. “He’d say, ‘Trish, one of these days, my time is coming. Hang in there,” said Covel. His moment came when he released his breakout single “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” one of the most played country songs from the ’90s.
No couple lasts over 30 years of marriage without a little bit of romance, but when pressed for more details about their relationship and dynamic behind the scenes, Covel said she prefers moments and dates rather than cheesy romance. “Most people think he is just the most romantic person on the planet. He has his moments of charm. It is nice to get a bouquet of flowers, but I’ve told him, ‘Save the money. Roses die in five to seven days. Buy me an outfit, or take me to dinner.”
