2) October 26, 1969 - Jessi Colter married Waylon Jennings in Mesa, Arizona. They both contributed to country music's first platinum album, Wanted: The Outlaws, and Waylon frequently hailed Jessi as a major force in helping him conquer his cocaine addiction. Waylon passed away on February 13, 2002. In 2006, Jessi released her first traditional studio album in 20 years, and their son Shooter Jennings has followed in mom and dad’s footsteps as a recording artist.

3) March 1, 1968 - Johnny Cash exchanged vows with June Carter at the Methodist Church, in Franklin, Kentucky. Both had previous marriages that produced yet more country stars: Johnny and his first wife, the former Vivian Liberto, welcomed Rosanne Cash; and June's wedding to Country Music Hall of Fame member Carl Smith yielded Carlene Carter. Johnny and June lasted long enough to observe their 35th anniversary. Sadly, June died on May 15, 2003 and Johnny died later that same year on September 12.

4) July 10, 2010 – Carrie Underwood may be a country music superstar, but she didn’t marry one – she chose a Music City hockey star instead! Introduced to Mike Fisher, a center for the Nashville Predators, through mutual friends, the pair were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds Plantation in Georgia. While they have very different, demanding careers, Carrie is often spotted at Mike’s hockey games – or is live tweeting them while on the road! – while Mike proudly supports his wife at shows and red carpet events.

5) December 28, 1993 - Shania Twain married record producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange in Northern Ontario, Canada. Before that, Shania was a struggling singer, but together, they set new musical trends and earned a Grammy for co-writing their romantic song "You're Still The One." Shania shared her anniversary with another country singer: Billy Ray Cyrus married Leticia Finley at home in Tennessee the same day, dressed in spiffy blue jeans and a cut-up sweatshirt. Billy Ray and Tish separated in October 2010 -- and before that, Shania left Mutt in May 2008 following his alleged affair with Shania’s best friend.

But Shania's story has a happy ending. In December 2010, she got engaged to Frédéric Thiébaud. Shania and Fred tied the knot on New Year's Day, 2011.
