A singer-songwriter, Brad Paisley debuted with the album “Who Needs Pictures” in 1999, proving a great success. Recently nominated for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame for 2019, Paisley certainly has enjoyed success over the course of his twenty-year career. As for his love life, that’s quite well documented too! After seeing her performance in Father of the Bride, Paisley was absolutely smitten with actress Kimberly Williams.
Their relationship began in 2001, and after a cameo in his music video for “I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song).” Things clearly went swimmingly well for the pair, with the couple getting married just two years later, at Stauffer Chapel, the on-campus chapel at Pepperdine University, California. Happily married, their family grew to include two sons, William Huckleberry, and Jasper Warren. Too cute!
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Miley may have crossed over into the pop genre, but as the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and god-daughter to Dolly Parton, she sure has her roots in the country. The multiple-time Grammy Award winner is considered to be one of the most successful entertainers in the industry. She has, of course, starred in her fair share of films, not to mention her hit TV series as a kid, Hannah Montanna. That all aside, she also bagged herself one of the hunkiest actors in Hollywood, Liam Hemsworth.
The two met on the set of The Last Song in 2008. After a few sparkling appearances on the red carpet, the two got engaged in 2012. But then for the next couple years, Miley went on her bender and partied it up like nobody's business. It seemed like it was over but fortunately, the two rekindled their love and they finally tied the knot in 2018. Unfortunately, it hurts us to tell you that it doesn't quite end there. At the beginning of 2020, the too filed for divorce. But who knows? With their history, anything is possible.
Dolly Parton and Carl Dean
The queen of country music has had one very special man all her life, and that is Carl Dean. For 53 years this couple has stuck through thick and thin. What's the secret to this unbreakable bond? Well, it seems to be the fact that they lead completely different lives. The ten-time Grammy Award winner, winner of ten Country Music Association Awards and much, much more has clearly been busy making some of the most beloved country songs for decades. Carl on the other hand, a businessman, has been in his world and completely out of the spotlight.
The two met a laundromat in 1964 and experienced what could only be described as love at first sight. Two years later they were hitched and have been going strong ever since. Dolly credits her crazy touring schedule over the years claiming that that has been the key to their successful marriage. "I always say 'Stay gone!' and there's a lot of truth to that. I travel a lot, but we really enjoy each other when we're together and the little things we do."
Charles Kelley and Cassie Kelley
Founding member of the gorgeous country music trio Lady Antebellum, next up on our list of country music stars is Charles Kelley. Born in Augusta, Georgia, the now 37-year-old is, of course, best known for his part in the trio. Fun fact: Lady Antebellum got their name from Dave Haywood’s suggestion that the word ‘antebellum’ which is derived from a word meaning “before the war” – and eventually they came up with Lady Antebellum!
Anyway, back to Charles – he wed music rep Cassie McConnell in a Nashville courthouse on June 2009, before flying off to the Bahamas for a destination wedding. Now, that’s pretty sweet. The couple has a son together – Ward Charles Kelley. We’ve got a feeling he too might be in the biz one day.
Willie Nelson and Annie D’Angelo
Legend alert! Mr. Willie Nelson has to be one of the best-recognized Americans, ever. A living icon, this country music star has successfully crossed over into acting, songwriting, writing, and activism over his long, star-studded career. It seems that his love life has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride, so much so that it perhaps even rivals his career milestones.
Having married four times, Nelson has fathered seven children. Martha Matthews, Shirley Collie, Connie Koepke and Annie D’Angelo have all had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Nelson. We feel a bit bad for Shirley Collie – he fathered a child with Connie Koepke while still married to Collie. Anyway, at 86, we think he’s had enough of getting divorced and remarried – and the winner is… Annie D’Angelo!
