Country music has a long history of couples making music together. Back in the 1970s, George Jones and Tammy Wynette’s marriage and then divorce was a source of fascination. Especially as the couple continued to perform duets together after their divorce. You can watch their turbulent relationship play out on Showtime’s George & Tammy, which stars Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon in the title roles.
Then in the late 1990s, country fans could not get enough of the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill love story that started when Faith opened shows for McGraw on his 1996 “Spontaneous Combustion Tour.” The couple went on to make beautiful music together through the years. In 2021, they played husband and wife James and Margaret Dutton in the Paramount Plus mini-series 1883.
Nowadays, we look to country music couple Kane Brown and his wife Katelyn, who scored a number one with the sensational song and video “Thank God.” That video won the top prize at the 2023 CMT Awards for Video of the Year. In a moment the couple shared on stage when they accepted the honor, Katelyn gushed, “This is all so new to me, and when we recorded this song a year ago, I never in my life would ever think that this was going to happen.”
The Browns chart-topper also made history, becoming the first husband and wife to top the country music charts since Tim and Faith did so in 1997 with “It’s Your Love.”
