Love is in the air—even in 2020! Proposals were made and knots were tied, some just before COVID-19 like Maddie & Tae’s Taylor Dye, and for others like Jon Pardi, the bells rang after the pandemic outbreak. Nonetheless, marital bliss is something to celebrate, and several country couples sure got to do that!
Check out the beautiful weddings this year in country music:
The Cadillac Three — Neil Mason of country rock group The Cadillac Three is a married man! The drummer and his longtime girlfriend Chelsea Eager wed at Eager’s parent’s hotel, Gruene Mansion Inn Bed & Breakfast, in New Braunfels, Texas on Jan. 4.
Maddie & Tae — Maddie & Tae’s Taylor Dye and her singer/songwriter Josh Kerr said “I do” on Feb. 21 in Nashville, Tennessee! The couple got engaged in Sept. 2019 in their brand-new home, where they ended up spending their honeymoon at due to the COVID-19 quarantine lockdown. Although the hit country duo’s latest hit “Die From A Broken Heart” was inspired by Dye’s past romance, we know for sure a “broken heart” is now a permanent thing of the past!
Dwight Yoakam — Country star Dwight Yoakam tied the knot with his longtime fiancée, Emily Joyce. “[The couple] were married in March just prior to the quarantine in a private ceremony at St Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica, California,” their official press statement stated. “The happy couple have been engaged for several years and have been dating since 2010. This belated announcement was withheld out of respect to so many people affected by and on the front lines of this pandemic.”
Luke Combs — Luke Combs is a married man! The “Better Together” singer wed his fiancée Nicole Hocking on Aug. 1 following their engagement in Nov. 2018. “Yesterday was the best day of my life. I got to marry my best friend,” Combs shared on social media. Pictures of the couple embracing in front of a beach also accompanied the post.
LANCO — LANCO guitarist Eric Steedly and his fiancée, Jessica Wardwell, exchanged vows in Nashville on Aug. 23. The two became engaged earlier in January, long before tying the knot in a pandemic was a concern.
Filmore — Rising country singer Filmore and his fiancée Paige Korte said “I do” at the beautiful Isle of Palms in South Carolina. The couple shared the blissful news on Oct. 21. According to People magazine, they chose the location because it was the same spot where Korte’s mother and father got engaged 32 years ago. Train’s heartwarming ballad “Marry Me” served as the newly weds’ first dance.
Alex Hall — Country newcomer Alex Hall eloped with the love of his life, Brianna Marie Hall, on Nov. 1 in Los Angeles, California. Though COVID-19 put a halt on their initial arrangements, the couple wanted to keep to their marriage date. “About a month before our set wedding date, @briannamariehall and I decided to change our plans, go to California and elope. “It was so important to both of us to get married on our actual date (11/1/2020) and COVID kept making that near impossible,” Hall wrote. “I know we’ve only been married a little over a month now, but I can honestly say, married life is the absolute best!”
Jon Pardi — Jon Pardi has been “Head Over Boots” for his longtime girlfriend Summer Fawn Duncan, and he’s finally put a ring on it! Mr and Mrs Pardi tie the knot in a private ceremony in Tennessee on Nov. 21. Though they originally planned to get married in Montana around a bigger group of friends and family, they opted for a quieter, more intimate vow exchange at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, just outside of Nashville.
Congratulations to all newly weds in the country music family!
