The world of country music has served as the backdrop for plenty of great love stories. From Johnny and June Cash to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, plenty of the genre’s most beloved collaborators also happen to be married. These beloved pairs have partnered both personally and professionally for decades and are now considered some of the most iconic couples in country music history.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are an iconic country duo.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have been one of country music’s reigning power couples since falling for each other while on tour in 1996. The two got married and welcomed the first of three daughters later that same year. Throughout their marriage, they’ve remained close to each other’s sides, most recently releasing a duets album together and embarking on their third joint tour, Soul2Soul: The World Tour.
„I’m lucky to have her. She’s the light of our whole family’s life. She keeps everything going for us,“ McGraw told E! News in 2017. „We all strive to be like my wife, everybody in our family. If your wife holds the example for everybody in your family, that’s a good thing.“
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood consistently praise each other.
They’ve been married since 2005, but this beloved country duo has known each other for nearly 30 years, according to Country Living. The two, who were each married to different people when they first met, were friends for decades before finally admitting their feelings for each other. The couple continues to lean on each other not only personally, but professionally as well — the two often join each other for duets on stage.
„I just want to be wherever she’s at. I love breathing the same air she’s breathing,“ Brooks told Parade in 2016, while Yearwood added, „I just think we’re meant to be.“
George Jones and Tammy Wynette created memorable music together.
George Jones and Tammy Wynette were already country music superstars in their own right when they got married in 1969. But their coupling sparked a new fervor around their music, with the two releasing a series of albums and singles that hit the charts throughout the 1970s and early ’80s. Their relationship wasn’t perfect, as Wynette recounted in her 1979 autobiography „Stand By Your Man,“ and Wynette eventually filed for divorce in 1975.
Though their marriage didn’t last, they continued to collaborate regularly on music, even releasing a reunion album, entitled „One,“ in 1995. The pair also shares a daughter, Georgette Jones, who is also in the music industry. Both Wynette and Jones remarried multiple times after their divorce.
