Country Music’s 12 Most Unexpected Couples
The world of Hollywood seems so big when you incorporate actors, actresses, models, athletes and musicians; however, it also seems so small as the biggest stars seem to form relationships even though it would seem impossible they would meet. While it is common for celebrities from all facets of the industry to date each other, the country music world of all genres seems to stay pretty close knit within itself with country music stars often dating other country stars or their high-school sweethearts or other people completely outside of the industry. However, some seemingly random country music relationships have popped up. Either because it seems so unlikely or because it happened out of scandalous circumstances, these relationships were certainly unexpected. Check out country music’s 12 most unexpected couples:
12. Jana Kramer and Mike Caussin
Actress turned country singer Jana Kramer has had a crazy ride when it comes to her romantic life. In 2004 she married her first husband in Las Vegas but after only a few months, they divorced. She then wed actor Johnanthon Schaech in 2010 but separate only one mother later. In 2012, Kramer began dating country star Brantley Gilbert and while they definitely seemed like an odd match, they made it work and became engaged before splitting in the summer of 2013. Although it seemed she was on the road to marriage with Gilbert, Kramer rebounded quickly and in December 2014 she became engaged to former NFL player Mike Caussin after only a few months of dating, and they were wed in May 2015, less than a year after they met! If things weren’t whirlwind enough, drama ensued when they announced they were expecting their first child and shortly afterwards it was revealed Caussin had cheated on Kramer multiple times. Despite the scandal, and his admission of infidelity, the two did something even more unexpected — they stayed together and in May 2018 were happy to celebrate their third wedding anniversary together.
11. Vince Gill and Amy Grant
Country superstar Vince Gill and singer Amy Grant were never expected to be together. The two met back in 1993 when Gill asked Grant to perform in his first ever televised Christmas special, and while there was instant chemistry, no one thought a romance would spark as both were married to other people. Nearly seven years later however, the two began dating after Grant filed for divorce from her husband and Gill and his wife had split in 1997. Less than a year after they publicly began dating, the two were married in March 2000 and later welcomed their only child, Corrina.
