These Wives Outshine Their Country Music Star Husbands


For the most part, celebrity relationships rarely last long. The patience, dedication, and support required make it a little hard for some partners to bear. The paparazzi are always on their case, cheating rumors always surface every once in a while, and the number of days the partners spend away from each other can sometimes lead to loneliness. Interestingly, Nashville is the one area in show business that boasts a high number of successful celebrity relationships.

When it comes to celebrity love stories, few are comparable to that of June and Johnny Cash. June was initially the backup singer for Elvis Presley, and the two met during a concert at the Grand Ole Opry in 1956. At the time, Johnny was married to his first wife, Vivian Liberto, but was immediately smitten by the talented June Carter. Cash divorced Vivian in 1968 and married June a year later, with the couple staying together for 35 years before dying four months apart.
