Married since 2008, Eric Church and Katherine Blasingame are another sweet country couple that’s made our list of notables. Church is a talented country-music singer and very much a family man. Blasingame is actually a music publisher – so that takes the guesswork out of how these two initially crossed paths. It was just meant to be, it seems!
Walking down the aisle in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, guests (and his now-wife Katherine) were treated to a serenade – Church sang his song “You Make It Look So Easy,” which he wrote for his Katherine specifically. This lovely couple has two gorgeous sons together. They settled down in Nashville, Tennessee.
Josh Turner and Jennifer Ford
The same year he signed his deal with Nashville Records, Josh Turner also released his debut album, Long Black Train. 2003 was just the beginning for the country and gospel singer and actor – upon releasing his second album, 'Your Man', Joshua Otis Turner scored two number-one hits! Being a devout Christian, Turner often refers to his great faith in his songs.
As for his wife, well, he and Jennifer Ford met at Belmont University, where they were both studying at the time. The same year he released his debut album, he also wed Ford! She too has a part in his music career, playing keyboard and singing background vocals while he’s on tour. The couple has four sons together, and are enjoying wedded bliss.
Loreta and Oliver Lynn
With a career spanning over 60 years, this woman is a country music legend. Born into a family who was all about country music, Loretta Lynn became one of the most groundbreaking female artists in the industry. She started out as a teenager, and being extremely mature for her age, at 15 years old she married Oliver Vanetta “Doolittle” Lynn.
They’d met just a month earlier. Since then, her career has shot to stardom, garnering praise and acclaim all over the world. Married for over fifty years, the pair had six children together, with three of them born before her 20th birthday! In 1996, her spouse Oliver passed away, five days before his 70th birthday,
Chris Carmack and Erin Slaver
Chris Carmack is up next on our list! Best known for appearing in cult TV series, The O.C, as Luke Was, as well as on Grey’s Anatomy, this actor is actually quite talented as a musician. Perhaps his role as Will Lexington on Nashville prompted him to give country music a go.
He released an EP titled Pieces of You in 2015, and while his career was taking off, he decided to propose to his girlfriend, fiddle player Erin Slaver. Around the same time, this gorgeous couple announced that Erin was pregnant, giving birth to a baby girl in August of 2016!
Jake and Lacey Owen
After three years of marriage, this pair surprised adoring fans by parting ways. But before we get to that, let us introduce Jake Owen first. A country music singer who quickly rose to fame after touring with greats such as Little Big Town, Sugarland, Keith Urban, and more, Jake's been hot property for a while now. But even hotter still was his wife to be – Lacey Buchanan. The model caught Jake's eye during a music video shoot.
In a very romantic move, Owen proposed onstage during one of his concerts in 2012. The very next month, the pair tied the knot in Vero Beach, Florida. Just months later, the pair welcomed their first child – Olive Pearl, on November 2012. But it seems that the couple had issues brewing under the surface of what seemed like an idyllic marriage, deciding to part ways in August 2015.
