And Now . . . Our List of Country Music’s Royal Couples

 

 

With the Royal Wedding clogging up today’s airwaves, we thought it might be nice to talk about the kind of couples you and I actually care about.  And so . . . our list of Country Music’s Royal Couples. 

 

 –To qualify, EACH half of the couple had to be a country music performer.  And just as important, they had to be artists who are widely respected.  We found seven couples that made the grade.  Here they are . . .

 

 

1.)  Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash.  And the world loved them almost as much as they loved each other.  (–And they got married in a fever: “Jackson”.)

 

 

2.)  Tim McGraw & Faith Hill.  They’re so dang good looking they HAVE to be together. 

 

 

3.)   Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton.  They’re sexy, they’re hip, and they’re funny. (news about Blake’s Bachelor party)

“I think me and my buddies are going to take a camping trip somewhere,” Blake told Parade magazine in March. “Maybe try to find something to go hunt. Turkey or bears or something like that. Something country. The last ten years of my life has been a bachelor party, so I don’t need an extra one night to add to my life. I’ve had plenty of that stuff.”

 

4.)  Waylon Jennings & Jessi Colter.  Yes, they were country before country was cool. 

 

 

5.)  George Jones & Tammy Wynette.  You’re grandparents loved ‘em. 

 

 

 

Back in 2008, TAYLOR SWIFT wrote a song called “Hey Stephen”.  And she freely admitted it was about STEPHEN LILES BARKER . . . who’s one-half of the band LOVE AND THEFT.  Well, Stephen returned the favor and wrote a song with Taylor in mind.  It’s called “Try To Make It Anyway”, and it’s out now.

Eric Church and his wife Katherine are expecting their first child this fall. Just like many first-time parents.

Eric admits one of his biggest fears is having to explain the meaning behind his music to his son or daughter.

“I’m still waiting on the time when [he or she is]10 years old [and] brings the iPod out and plays ‘Smoke A Little Smoke’ for me. I’ve got some explaining to do.”

 

Trace Adkins, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Lady Antebellum are headlining this year’s “Country Fest 2011″ . . . which is going down June 23rd through the 26th in Cadott, Wisconsin.  Other artists include Dierks Bentley, Gretchen Wilson, Craig Morgan, Josh Thompson, Justin Moore, Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann.
