Country’s Top Power Couples

View Comments(0)

Country's Power Couples Header

With the breakup of country-pop’s favorite couple – Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert – the hierarchy of super-star country couples has been totally upended. So we’re re-examining the genre’s power elite who also happen to call one another “bae.” (No, seriously, try to picture Garth Brooks saying that.)

Garth BrooksGarth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood

Married in 2005 at their Oklahoma ranch, Garth and Trisha have a remarkable 57 combined years in the music business. The eccentric Brooks actually proposed to Yearwood in front of thousands of fans. They’re currently touring together, but the duo doesn’t stop at singing. Trisha in particular is multi-talented, currently hosting a Food Network Show, “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,” and is also the author of several cookbooks. Garth sticks to music in general, but whether he’ll pull out his alter ego any time soon remains to be seen.

Tim McGrawFaith Hill & Tim McGraw

Perhaps the country stunner was singing to her equally attractive husband with 1998’s smash hit “This Kiss,” whom she married in 1996. Like chicken fried steak and biscuits with gravy, Faith and Tim are a country staple at this point. While she helped spearhead the rise of country-pop in the late 1990s, McGraw remains a traditionalist favorite, crafting arena-friendly tunes and never without his signature black Stetson.

Lady AntebellumChris Tyrrell & Hillary Scott (Lady Antebellum)

The Lady Antebellum stars have been married since 2012, but they’ve known each other since college. They reconnected when Tyrrell filled in as Lady A’s drummer, and he subsequently became a permanent member of the group. They currently have one daughter, Eisele Kaye Tyrrell, together.

Keifer & Shawna Thompson (Thompson Square)

Keifer and Shawna Thompson met at a singing competition in Nashville. And while they worked as independent solo acts for a while, they finally teamed up – both professionally and personally – by 2010. Lauded by critics, it’ll be exciting to continue to watch Thompson Square grow.

Lady AntebellumJimi Westbrook & Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town)

Married since 2006, the couple make up one half of the Award-Winning vocal quartet Little Big Town. Though they worked together long before they got together, the couple currently has a 5 year-old son, Elijah, and show no signs of slowing down. They refer to one another as “soulmate.” Awwww.

Brad PaisleyBrad & Kimberly (Williams-) Paisley

Sure, Kimberly Williams-Paisley is best known as an actress, but her recurring role on Nashvillehas to count for something, right? Brad apparently had a crush on Kimberly after her break-out role in 1993’s Father of the Bride, and the two have been married since 2003. They apparently met on the set for his video for “I’m Gonna Miss her” and the rest is history. They’ve since reappeared on screen together in the aforementioned Nashville.

In support of his upcoming film, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the two partook in a lip sync battle. Singing, well, lip syncing a vast array of music, the two performed everything from The Righteous Brothers to The Weeknd in this lighthearted clip. Also, on a completely separate note, is it just me, or does Tom Cruise not age?

Why Farm Aid Still Matters

Farm Aid

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Farm Aid, the concert event that was started in 1985 by the likes of John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, and Neil Young after Bob Dylan quipped at Live Aid that he hoped some proceeds might help American farms in debt. That first year, acts as huge and disparate as Billy Joel, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Beach Boys, Lou Reed, Merle Haggard, and others joined in to help raise money and awareness of the plight of family farms in the U.S. Van Halen even took the opportunity to debut Sammy Hagar as their new lead singer, and the event has been going strong ever since. In 1989, Farm Aid president and your favorite marijuana advocate, Willie Nelson, took the show on the road and hit 16 different dates to improve outreach.

Although the idea was destined for failure from the moment it was conceived, the bid for Boston to host the 2024 Olympics fell flat on its face on Monday when the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) officially ended its bid for Boston to host the 2024 Summer Games. The idea that New England’s largest city would host the Olympics didn’t sit well with many Bostonians from the start. Years of construction associated with building Olympic venues, few economic benefits, and a potential for the event to go over budget, which is the main reason the bid ultimately fell through, were all reasons so many were wary of the idea.
