12. Eric Church and Katherine Blasingame
Eric Church and his wife Katherine Blasingame were married on January 8, 2008 and have been going strong ever since. It all began through work of course. Katherine was a music publisher and was actually in the business before him and they met through their jobs. “She was trying to hook me up to write with one of her writers that she represented, that was how we met. It’s great now, because being a publisher and being somebody in the industry, I can bounce songs off of her, and she has the knowledge, you know, to be kind of that sounding board of what I should cut and what I shouldn’t cut. So, she’s one of those in the inner circle that I run a lot of stuff by,” Church told Taste of Country. The two also share two sons, Boone McCoy, 4, and Tennessee Hawkins “Hawk,” 10 months.Photo by Picture Perfect / Rex Features
