The frontman of the Georgia-based country band, The Zac Brown Band, Brown is a bit of a legend when it comes to his vocals and guitar. The seven-piece band is known for their use of the fiddle, banjo, ukulele and even a mandolin on occasion. The band has been quite successful, releasing six albums and having sixteen singles make the country music charts!
Brown is happily married to his wife Shelly, with the pair tying the knot just over ten years ago. The couple has a pretty large family too, with five kids – but with such a successful career, we’re sure he and his wife have no trouble raising them!
Jay DeMarcus and Allison DeMarcus
American bassist, vocalist, pianist, record producer and songwriter, Jay DeMarcus is pretty well accomplished! Best known for being a member of the country-pop group Rascal Flats, DeMarcus is also quite the advocate for Christian music. He’s also pretty talented too – did you know he’s been awarded a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame? As for his love life? Well, this country music man is married to former beauty queen and Miss Tennessee, Allison Alderson.
Crowned twice, Alderson must also be twice as nice! The pair actually met on set during the Rascal Flatts music video for “These Days.” Since that meeting, the pair married and now have two kids together!
Lee Brice and Sara Reeveley
Born Kenneth Mobley Brice, Jr., it’s no wonder that tongue twister was shortened to the more palatable “Lee Brice.” Shots aside, Brice is quite successful in the country music scene and is a talented singer-songwriter. Signed to Curb Records, Brice has released four albums, including “Love Like Crazy”, the album which smashed records: did you know it had the longest-run on a country chart and broke a 62-year-old record?! That’s no mean feat! Not to mention the fact that eleven of his released singles charted, with some reaching number one on Billboard Hot Country Songs.
As we mentioned earlier, Brice is good with penning lyrics and writing songs too – he’s co-written for hard-hitters like Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, and Adam Gregory. As for his partner: well, in 2013, Brice tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Sara Reeveley. The couple has three kids together, and we’re sure those kids are “loved like crazy!”
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!
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.
